    Can I disable the stock browser? I use Dolphin HD, but suspect the stock browser is running in the background. It's never asked which browser I want to use as "preferred" browser.

    What comes up when you do a search, Dolphin or the stock browser?

    Without rooting and freezing the app, I don't think you can.

    I found it in the Dolphin settings. I set it to default browser. However, the stock browser is still hogging resources! :(

    Open apps and run task manager. Check stock browser amd end app. Might have to do it every so often but you can still get it out of memory.

    I havent tried Dolphin. but it sounds like an interesting browser. What things do you like better about it?

    I have a similar issue. I use GOsmsPro for Messaging. and i have had issues "completely" disabling the stock messaging app.

    I like Dolphin for the tabbed browser windows (just like a pc browser) and the slide out bookmarks. I hated the stock browser for the stupid share button that was right next to the bookmarks button and the address bar. I have no desire to tweet anything and my fat fingers kept hitting it at inadvertent times.

    I like Boat Browser, but I'll have to try Dolphin HD again.
