Similar to Safari in iOS 15, Samsung has also added an option in its latest beta update for Samsung Internet, letting users move the address bar to the bottom of the web browser. The new beta update for Samsung Internet is available for download in the Galaxy Store.
A new layout has been added in version 188.8.131.52 of Samsung Internet, the default mobile web browser in Samsung’s Android smartphones, where the address bar has been moved to the bottom of the phone screen for easier one-handed access. Users can enable this new Safari-like layout by navigating to Settings » Layout and menu » Address bar position. Below is an image showing how the process works. You will receive a choice between the traditional web layout and the new unified address bar at the bottom of the screen.
Samsung Copied Apple to Add New Layout
With the release of iOS 15, Apple made some significant changes to its Safari browser, which included a new unified address bar at the bottom of the screen. Samsung has now followed Apple to move its mobile browser address bar to the bottom after this change unnerved many iOS users.
In a new beta update for Samsung Internet, there’s now a new option called “Address bar position” in the Layout and Menu settings in browser preferences. If you choose the new layout, the address bar is moved to the bottom and is displayed on top of the navigation bar, tab manager, and sharing buttons. The new layout looks quite similar to Safari in iOS 15.
If you don’t know, the idea of this new layout is not new, and Apple isn’t the first company to try out this layout for a mobile web browser. Earlier, companies like Microsoft and Google have already tried this on their web browsers.
