    Which one are you likely to be using when you get your note 7?

    Always used stock but feel chrome seems more stable and it's easier to sync all my bookmarks from device to device.

    I'll probably use both. The secure area of the phone can apparently only use the stock browser. Aside from that I'll base it on how the browsers differ in displaying web pages and scrolling.

    I've used Firefox (and Firefox beta) on my Note 3, 4 & 5 because you can use add-on adblockers. It's a little buggy, but worth it for me because ads drive me nuts. I'll use Chrome or the stock browser if a particular site isn't working right in FF.

    I like the stock browser for general internet surfing, especially with the ad block plug in. I do use chrome for a few tasks still because of the desktop integration.

    Stock. Been using it on my s7 edge and love the ad block plug in and fingerprint login.

    I've noticed that the stock browser sometimes does not like to load links opened from apps correctly, but Chrome has never failed in this regard.

    I still like the speed of the stock browser though.

    I've been using the "Free Adblock Browser" because it works well and blocks ads. But otherwise I'll use Chrome.

    I've disliked every Android browser I've tried honestly. I've settled on Chrome so far, but I still don't like it. I'm definitely gonna try the stock one to see how I like it. Especially if the ad blocker works well.

    Chrome. The only browser that can sync my bookmarks accurately and consistently.

    I use Firefox on all devices (tablet, laptop, phone, etc.). It syncs bookmarks, etc. and works great for me.

    I used to use Google Chrome on Note 4, but now I use the stock Samsung browser. Ever since they updated the browser and with the addition of adblock, it's better than Chrome.

    Samsung because of ad-block. No complaints. Battery life is apparently better as well.

    Been a Chrome addict since it became available.
    But, on my N5, I moved to stock b/c of ad-blocking (works great) and its superior speed.

    I generally stick to the stock browser because it is very fast compared to chrome.

    Stock browser for Samsung has improved so much! On the new devices you can add ad block extension to block all adds! Download ad block fast and follow the directions. It makes browsing so much faster. It is supported by Samsung and you just have to enable it in the browser settings after you download ad block fast.

    I really like the stock browser but there are few caveats that bring me back to Chrome so often.

    1.) Doesn't sync with Google the way Chrome does(obvi).
    2.) The browser doesn't(at least on my Note5) support tabs opening in the background. I hate this.
    3.) I wish it supported Chrome's tab setup. I hate the overall layout of the buttons.

    Stock browser with Chrome as a backup. The stock one because:
    1) Faster than Chrome.
    2) Less of a pig than Firefox.
    3) Built in ad blocking capability.
    4) Password to fingerprint integration.

    Reasons I keep Chrome as a backup:
    1) Ad blocking screws up some sites.
    2) Sync across Google account for bookmarking and other things.

    Reasons I don't like the stock browser:
    1) Tab mechanism sucks compared to Chrome. New pages open in tabs come to the surface automatically and no setting to stop it.
    2) Bookmarks vs quick links is confusing.

    Where do you find the plug-in/add-onn feature?? For the life of me I can't find it. By any chance was that feature added with the Marshmallow update? Because I've been postponing the install forever since I knew I'd be getting the N7 & didn't want to have to mess with anything it might break that close to getting a new phone.

    Now you guys have me thinking of checking it out again. I have always used and loved Chrome. Is the stock browser that much faster? Is it really noticeable? And which ad blocker do you use with it?
