One of the greatest aspects of Safari has finally been brought to Google Chrome for iOS users: the ability to move the address bar to the bottom of the screen. It's challenging to reach the top of the screen on a phone with a large display in order to type the website's name. It is much easier to access the tab bar if it is located at the bottom.
With the launch of iOS 15 two years ago, Safari introduced this feature; at last, Chrome has joined the group. However, you might not be aware of this feature because it is not activated by default. But it's much better to have the URL at the bottom once you get used to it.
How to move the iPhone's address bar in Chrome to the bottom.
Get the most recent version of Google Chrome first. That is version 119.0 as of this writing. Point 109, 6045. To find out if Google Chrome needs to be updated, go to the App Store and search for it.
After installing the update, launch Google Chrome and press and hold the upper address bar. Next, choose Move address bar to bottom. When you do that, the improved address bar layout will be displayed. In addition, this arrangement makes it easier to access Chrome's share icon, which is situated to the right of the address bar.
It is also possible to activate this feature by selecting Settings > Address bar after tapping the three .s icon located in the bottom-right corner of the screen. Everything is ready for you to go; just select the Bottom option on this page.
This option doesn't seem to be available yet for the Android version of Chrome. Google used experimental Chrome flags to temporarily add this feature, but they have since removed that option. That's odd because Chrome and Android are owned by Google, but on that platform, one of the greatest new browser features is completely absent. Granted that the bottom URL is the default setting for only Safari, but you would think Google would at least provide Android users with the option.
