    You can go to your settings>apps and clear app preferences. The next time you want to open a link, a pop up should come up asking what browser you want to use. You can then set chrome as the browser of choice.

    OMG BECKY IT'S ALMOST HERE. The greatest tool to modify almost any HTC phone is on the verge of release. Unlock bootloaders, flash recoveries, root, and more. Open source, powerful, end-to-end encryption, enhanced by Droplr and Amazon's Secure Content Distribution Network. Best of all, it's 100% free. All built by me. Get ready to rock!

    Thanks, but that's kind of a nuclear option. It would wipe out months of work in setting up all my other apps. I can't believe there is not another way...

    What they meant was go to settings click apps, go to the browser that is default now, click on it, scroll down and clear defaults for that app only. Then next time you open a news story or what not it will ask which browser to use, click chrome and click always.

    You only do it to the stock browser I believe.

    Thanks. I disabled it, and that seems to work.
