    I'm a noob. How do I uninstall chrome? I am having problems downloading some PDF files and I see in other posts that Chrome can be a problem. What browser do you recommend and where can I get it?

    why do you want to uninstall chrome? just dont use it. download other browser and set it to default when prompted.
    uninstalling system app will cause issues. far more issue than having problem downloading pdf.

    and btw, pdf files download fine for me on chrome.

    other browsers, dolphin or firefox.

    You can't uninstall it (unless you're rooted, I suppose) because it's built into the Android operating system. You can disable it by going into Settings > Apps > All > Chrome, and pressing Disable, though I wouldn't recommend that.

    I've not had a problem downloading pdf's and opening them in 3rd party pdf readers (I use Adobe Acrobat Reader). However, it is true that the mobile version of Chrome cannot open a pdf from within the browser. I don't know of other browsers that can do this, as I've not had a need for that.

    Just hold it down until it flashes, then drag it to the button at the top of the display.
    It disappears into the app file, not uninstalled or disabled... just gone from your app screen and you then go get a different browser in the GPlay store...

    When I try uninstalling chrome it will not uninstall. I do not see the install/uninstall options, all I see are Update and Install. I'm trying to permanently uninstall because for the last three days I have had to uninstall Google Music Downloader because it launches itself all the time. It also doesn't allow me to uninstall. In my opinion, Google IS a virus. I'll never install anothe google app, that's for sure. Is there a way of permanently deleting these apps? I've got a Samsung Galaxy Note III.

    Chrome is installed on the system partition. Meaning, the user can't uninstall it without root access.
