    Install a second browser. When you click link say from an email where it would open the browser you will then have a window ask you which browser to use with the option to set as default. Which is best is stricktly user opinion.

    Chrome if you're on ics
    Firefox and dolphin are good for gb..

    Go to manage apps & open current default browser then tap clear default. To set a new default tap on something that will need a browser (URL links), when you get the pop up check set default then tap on browser app you want to set as default. At least this is how it works on other apps.

    As for what's best, well that all depends on personal preference & needs.

    For setting a default browser, what lovemyram4x4 said. As for "best" browser, I prefer Dolphin HD for all the cool add ons it offers.

    i like dolphin browser HD and it's easy to set it as default browser.
    all you have to do is go down its Settings>Set as Default Browser>ON>Make Dolphin my default browser>check Use by default for this action>Dolphin Browser HD.
    And there you go.
