How to change Mac default browser
Like iPhone and iPad, the default browser for Mac computers is Safari. However, the browser is not a favorite of users in general, especially for those who have migrated from the PC and are already used to Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox, among others. While changing the PC is easy, changing the default Mac browser is a bit more work.
Because of this, we've cited a few steps so you can make the change in the browser and thus choose the one that suits you best. As with Windows computers, whenever you start a new browser, it will ask if you want to make it the default. If you initially denied it, follow the steps below to make the change.
