    I have been testing both since the first day I purchased Note 3, and I don't see any difference between both. Can you please share your experience? I want to make a decision and set a default browser asap.

    I too prefer Chrome. I like how I can see what's sync'd on my other devices that's also running Chrome.

    Chrome is more polished. One thing I hate about stock browser is when you double tap to zoom in on text, the text amount isn't rendered to fit the screen

    Chrome all the way. Why?
    - Better rendering than stock.
    - More refined UI coupled with better gestures.
    - Reliable sync across multiple devices.
    - Tab switching is way better than the crap on stock.

    always used stock but not use chrome..far smoother and on the stock it can lag abit not on chrome. plus being able to sync the bookmarks on other devices is huge.

    Chrome OR UCBrowser. The stock browser seems to freeze up too much for me

    I just switched to Chrome from stock browser. The only thing I don't like is getting to the bookmarks. Does anyone know of a fast way to bring up your bookmarks? I don't like having to hit menu then bookmarks. I like how there is a bookmark button next to the address bar on the stock browser.

    Click the star on the navigation panel at the bottom.

    I'm with majority and say Chrome.

    And there's not a huge difference. IMO.

    Unless your use smart scroll a lot on browser, I'd pick chrome.

    Make sure you also try Dolphin, which is widely considered the best mobile web browser on both Android and iOS platforms.

    You still have to hit the tabs button first then the star button. I wish there was a one button way to get there like the stock browser.

    I would love to try Dolphin, but I can't find a way to import my bookmarks and don't really want to enter them one by one.

    Chrome. Bookmark sync from PC and the being able to drag down from the top to switch or swipe away pages is very nice.

    I just started using the Chrome browser again. There is really nothing wrong with the Samsung browser. But I do believe that the Chrome browser is a little smoother since the last update.

    Yeah this is what I hate about Chrome. There's at least 3-4 steps you need to do to access a list of your bookmarks. In Dolphin all you need to do is swipe right and your bookmarks are there. Dolphin is great for bookmarks but its quite unstable.

    I too have been using both the stock browser and chrome. I like chrome a lot and the features that it provides by linking to my whole account. The only reason that I use the stock browser more often is because of the s-pen feature. In the stock browser, the scrapbooking feature works far better and is much more intergrated. You have to be much more exacting in your selection when using Chrome or it will crop only what you circle not the full paragraph or section. It can still be done but take much more precision and time. I found myself having to try it again and again in Chrome because the pen would leave the screen and assume I was done croping what I wanted to scrapbook. When it would load into scrapbooker the section would be little more than a chopped up selection with a link without it wouldn't pulling the text from the selection. Until Chrome is updated to integrate more fluidly with the s-pen features, (if ever) I'll stick with stock.

    Without a doubt, Chrome. Does anyone know if I get the apk for Adobe Flash Player if it will work in the stock browser like it did on my S3?

    I use Chrome. Despite any advantages other browsers have, I really like the sync feature better, for bookmarks and being able to view my history and open tabs from other chrome instances on my computer.

    My wish list would include a "Home Screen" button, and a better way to access bookmarks, as others have mentioned.

    Only time I use an alternate browser is when I absolutely have to use Flash...and honestly those instances are becoming fewer and fewer as time goes on.

    Without a doubt, Chrome. Does anyone know if I get the apk for Adobe Flash Player if it will work in the stock browser like it did on my S3?
    It might...

    You can get the apk and try it out...

    Is there any way to scroll all the way to the top of pages on either browser? I know when I had my iPhone and Blackberry z10 I could just tap at the top of the page and it would auto scroll back up.
