    So I can have Tapatalk and the Internet open at the same time. Looking at a post on another forum while wanting to look something up.

    Oh... That makes sense. Ok but why would you use it if your already on the Internet?

    Sounds like you have the regular browser set as the default. Go into Application Manager, switch to view all applications, and click on Internet. If you had set it to be the default option, there is a button to click to reset this.

    The next time you click on a link, it should show you the option to open different browsers.

    Using tapatalk to view another car forum I use there was a thread with a product that I want with a bunch of specific parts to the whole thing and so I wanted to order the product but had to switch back and forth between tapatalk and the browser in order to get all the information I needed. If I was able to open a pop up browser, I could of had the browser open on top of the tapatalk screen so then I wouldn't have to switch screens at all.

    It does currently do that but I would rather have a shortcut or option right off the bat to open pop up browser instead of the full browser.

    If you already have the browser up and viewing a webpage is it possible to make it small and move it to the home screen?

    Popup browser doesn't support "open new window".

    I did this:
    1. create a bookmark in chrome, like google.com or similar
    2. add a bookmark widget to the homepage for that bookmark.
    3. clear defaults for webpages, so it asks for the selected browser each time.

    Now when I click on the bookmark in the touchwiz home, it asks me if I want to use popup browser or something else. If I'm inside an application already, I do this:
    Press Home > Press icon > choose popup browser > Long-press home > go back to app
    I can see both apps this way.

    Not as good as having a real shortcut to popup browser, but still usable.

    Much appreciated. I am going to try to follow your instructions. However, I don't use chrome I use the stock browser. I will keep you posted.

    And I use dolphin. The reason that I said Chrome is that the bookmark widget belongs to it. Follow my instructions using Chrome. The result is the same. What you lose is the ability to set a default browser for Web action.
