The Apple vs. Samsung battle is never ending, but it appears that the latter is recently adopting inspiration from Apple for numerous of its products and services. A new example is being circulated on the internet, in which Samsung appears to have followed in the footsteps of Apple in terms of web browsing experience.
Apple has just started to deliver the iOS 15 upgrade to its iPhones. Several changes have been made to the company’s Safari web browser as a result of the update. One such feature allows iPhone users to position the address bar at the bottom of the web browser rather than the top of the screen. Samsung appears to be inspired by this concept right now. It should be noted that the concept is not new, since Apple is not the first to have offered it to its user base. Several online browsers currently allow you to move the address bar to the bottom of your phone. Among these are Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox Preview, and Vivaldi, to name a few. The objective is to make it easier for users to reach the address bar during web browsing.
Samsung introduces this feature to its own Samsung Internet browser right after Apple introduced it to Safari with iOS 15. An update to the Samsung Internet beta app has started trickling out to Samsung devices, giving users the option to move the address bar on the mobile web browser to the bottom, similar to Safari.
As pointed out by Dan Seifert from The Verge in a recent tweet, the two browsers look exactly similar once the option is enabled on both.
