Hi all. I use Mercury for my browsing needs on my iPad. However there are times when links either in emails or simply websites open only with Safari. Most notably when i am using the default mail app- clicked links open in safari. Pretty annoying. I have looked for anything in the settings that will kill this option to no avail.
Thoughts?

You maybe found this out weeks ago, but I did see this sort-of, partial-workaround at the Mercy Web Browser support site (suggestion to use their "bookmarklet" program so that links in Safari at least open up in Mercy -- doesn't help your issue with e-mails though, sorry) :

Can I set Mercury as default web browser?

iOS does not provide the option to customize default web browser.

At this moment, you can install “Mercury Bookmarklet” into Safari to open links with Mercury from Safari. Please follow the steps to install “Mercury Bookmarklet” into Safari:
1. Launch Mercury
2. Go to settings screen
3. For iPhone, tap “Bookmark Options” and then tap “Install Mercury Bookmarklet” and follow the instructions. For iPad, tap “Functions” on left panel and then tap “Install Mercury Bookmarklet” and follow the instructions.
