    I was just fed up with ads and finally installed adblock plus api, internet browsing on UC browser is just flying and smooth.. Also changed the font to auto scaling, not sure if that changed anything. But the browsing is silt smooth now, even sites like CNET.com

    Try it.

    I did a similar thing. I disabled Chrome, used the native Samsung internet browser and downloaded and enabled Crystal ad block. Works like a charm.

    But with adblock plus it does everything, so may be thats why Facebook is flying too, able to scroll pages with out a break or jerkey motion, may be some flash Ads making it worse before.

    Yeah, I've been using my S5 for 2 years and never realised about ad blocking. Only rarely does a website come up that says "AD block detected". Forbes is one of them. Too bad, look elsewhere.

    Boat Browser has always been my go-to browser on Note, also UC and Firefox.

    Thanks for the tip!

    Do we need to root the phone for that app to work?

    Tried UC, amazingly fast and their built-in AdBlock works great. Also tried Crystal AdBlock and that too works great. I decided to use Crystal AdBlock with Samsung browser because I like certain things about it but UC is much faster imo. Thanks for the tips.

    Wish the app had a proper desktop view option. Seems to format all in mobile even when set to desktop in web options.

    Update: I had it in zoom mode, duh! UC also has a black background option. Nice for amoled battery life.

    I agree. Live bookmarks is the only thing holding me back from changing.
