    Default Can't uninstall chrome

    Chrome will not let me uninstall it, can uninstall the update but but not the app itself. Anyone else experiencing this?

    If Chrome came preinstalled with your phone, then it cannot be completely removed unless you root the phone. If you're not going to use it at all, you can disable it by going to System Settings/Apps/All, selecting Chrome, and tapping Disable. This will prevent it from opening and taking up any System RAM. I've actually found that disabling Chrome speeds the system up a bit on my Asus TF300.

    Thanks for the reply..It's just strange, I've had my Evolte for over a year now and I always use Chrome Beta. Sure I would have noticed 2 chrome browser in my app drawer. O well I'll take your advice and disable it!

    It's possible that your phone started off without Chrome, and then it was added as a system app when the OS got updated. This is what happened to my Razr Maxx--only stock Browser with Gingerbread and ICS, but then Chrome added as a sysytem app with Jellybean.

    Not only adds it, but repeatedly associates it with opening URL's. I changed the app association back to Dolphin Browser 3 times and after rebooting the phone it kept defaulting back to Chrome. Finally remembered to disable it.
