    I can't say all are bad but chrome sucks the bitter root of disappointment. I didn't like Fire fox but the stock browser works great.

    You would think so. I've been trying to figure out why the Google OS doesn't use Google's Chrome browser as the stock browser, but they aren't the same.

    Chrome is the default browser...but the stock browser may still be available and useable.

    On my Bionic its in the app drawer as Browser. It still works, but is missing some features since Chrome was installed with JB.

    Did the RAZR HD come with Chrome already installed? If not, Browser might be Disabled in Manage Apps ~ All ~ Browser.

    Why not just try an earlier version of Dolphin, I have a backup of 9.3.2 which was an HD version, possibly a month or two old. Anyhow here is the link. BTW Chrome is the ONLY stock browser on JB 4.1.1 & 4.1.2. While on the topic of Dolphin, here is the version that installs Flash and here is the link to download Flash.

    Just make sure to change the "Auto-update apps" in the Playstore settings to "Do not auto-update apps", FIRST otherwise these downloads will be instantly updated.

    I actually like chrome. Especially since I started using it as my desktop browser and it syncs across all platforms.
