There is no option for this; the Evernote/IOS editor launches an embedded web browser

It's an extra step but the Safari icon is in the top right corner; an easy click

Thanks for the reply. Helpful.

Not helpful. Is it "easy" when you have to do it over 100 times in a session? No. If it were that "easy" I wouldn't have needed to post the question.

Your factual information is helpful and appreciated. Your opinions are not. 

Once again Evernote fails at the basics. Every other app I have that includes a built-in browser also offers a way to bypass it. I have several of them. But Evernote? No. Of course not.

I'm surprised that there's only one topic about this.  Really wish there was an option to bypass the built in browser.  Yes, you can tap on the Safari icon to open it, but this is problematic with certain URLs, such as verification links which may throw an error since the link was already opened in the embedded browser.  The only good alternative in this case is to copy the URL, manually open Safari, then paste it.  

Can we submit feature requests somewhere?

Just found this and completely agree with OP. 

I'm trying to increase my Evernote usage again after trying different tools and I can't even get a link to a Google Sheet to open in the Google Sheets app on my iPhone.  It just opens to the Evernote default browser and then opens up in Chrome if I click the "browser button".  This is the only app I have that does this.
