To answer your question of reverting back to iOS7. Unfortunately, that is not really possible. "Technically" it can be done, but you would end up with more issues than you have now...

I'm assuming this pop up issue is only occurring on TOTV and not other sites.
For me, this pop-up Game App issue is only occurring on TOTV.

How does one make Chrome a default on an iPad?

It doesn't really matter if Chrome is the default or not. Just download Chrome, which is just an app. Open Chrome and go to TOTV. The caveat is that if you open a link from say your email, it will always open Safari, as the default. While you are using Chrome, everything should open in Chrome.

Try it....it might solve some of your immediate issues....

I don't believe you can...easily at least.

Have you considered Tapatalk? Of course when you click a link it would still send you to Safari.

Just switched to chrome. No more game pop ups but keyboard disappears in the middle of typing, especially problematic when logging in.

On my own iPad, I have not be able to recreate the issue with popup ads, such as being described... I am using Safari.

If you haven't already, go into settings and then Safari. Scroll to where is says Block Popups and make sure that is turned on.

Back in Settings, scroll down until you find Game Center. Click on that and make sure you are NOT signed into Game Center. If you aren't signed in, it will ask you to Authenticate. Your AppleID should already be filled in. At this point, simple hit Cancel to get out of it. If you are logged into Game Center, logout and see if anything changes.

I'll keep looking, but this seems to be rather isolated.
I checked my Safari settings and I already had the "block popups" turned on. I noticed a ''Cookie" setting and changed it from "always allow" to "only from websites I visit" (or something like that). Maybe that will help!

On a side note-- About a year and a half ago, I was having problems with my laptop and took it into our local computer repair shop here in Michigan. They told me that they had never seen so much "brownware' on a computer and thought it was from TOTV -- because there are so many ads on the site! That is when I switched to using TOTV exclusively on my iPad!

I've noticed recently that a lot of iPad/TOTV issues have disappeared.
Especially the bothersome icons that used to appear willy nilly all over the place.
Thanks to Admin for resolving these issues!

Happy Camper
