To move the address bar on iPhone, long-press on it and select the “Move address bar to bottom” option. You can also move it back to the top by following the same steps.

Google says that the new feature is designed to make it easier for users to access the address bar with one hand. It is also similar to the address bar placement in Apple’s Safari browser.

The new feature is expected to be available to all iOS users in the coming weeks. It is unclear when or if it will be released for Android.

Benefits of the bottom address bar:

There are several benefits to having a bottom address bar in Chrome for iPhone. First, it makes it easier to access the address bar with one hand. This is especially useful for people with smaller hands or those who are using their phone while standing or walking.

Second, the bottom address bar can be more ergonomic. When the address bar is at the top of the screen, users often have to reach up with their thumb to type in a URL. This can be uncomfortable and even painful for some people.

Third, the bottom address bar can help to reduce eye strain. When the address bar is at the top of the screen, users have to constantly look up and down to switch between the address bar and the content of the web page. This can be tiring and can lead to eye strain.

The new bottom address bar in Chrome for iPhone is a welcome addition. It makes it easier to access the address bar with one hand, which is more ergonomic and can help to reduce eye strain. It is unclear when or if the feature will be released for Android, but it is something that many users are hoping for.
