    I would like to get the stock browser back. Where can I download it? If I knew what it was called exactly, I may be able to find it in the Play Store.

    Thanks!

    If it was the stock browser you can't download it. No stock apps can typically be downloaded. If you had it, and you aren't rooted, it should still be there, somewhere. It's typically called "browser".

    It may also be called "Internet."

    Thanks! As soon as I read this I remembered that I had it "hidden." I got it back.

    Also you can find the original "stock" browser for android by searching aosp browser on the play store you can get it

    This is fascinating. I'm running the stock (non Chrome) browser that came with the Note 3. I assumed it was the same browser I had on my Note 2 and Galaxy 3--but it was missing the ability to reveal a semi-circular control feature by sliding my thumb from the side. I had become very dependent on that feature.

    I checked out the asop browser in the Playstore as you recommended. It looked like the stock browser already on my phone but I noted it showed it wasn't installed so I downloaded it.

    Voila, under settings I found the lab category and the "Quick Control" feature I've been missing.

    Just as importantly, I found the read later button and additional controls for setting a more precise layout when opening websites--both features which were stripped from the newer browser that came with my Note 3.

    You are a genius. Much appreciated!

    You resolved the greatest irritant caused by my switching to the Note 3.

    I'm on the Internet 6 to 7 hours a day.

    Again, bravo, well done, etc.
