    If receiving a email with a link gmail open it . Well I don't know where but has a small button in the bottom corner to transfer to safari. This is a long process as you have to load the page twice. Can you direct the links to one where you need them(browser of choice)

    Browser chooser does change the browser but via gmail app or imailg you still can not just click the link and go directly to a browser ... You either have to hold the link button and select or open a gmail window and then link to your browser

    I probably was not Specific in that I am using gmail app and tried imailg

    Fair enough. Sorry I am not sure. Is there maybe a setting in the app? I don't use it so I have no idea

    You must be talking about using the GMail app. I don't know of anyway to change this behavior. The browser built into GMail is always going to open first.

    If you use the mobile GMail site in Safari or the native Mail app, links act as you would expect them to; a tap opens the link in Safari.

    No problem. Google would have to make this change, since it is their app. No reason they couldn't send you straight to Safari. Google now has a Chrome browser app on the iPad. Maybe that would act as a default browser from the GMail app, but I doubt it.

    With chrome installed, the gmail apps still uses the built in browser. And in settings we can't choose any default to open links.

    Thanks for that. It's about what I expected, but seemed worth looking into.
