Default Weird issue

Ok so I got my S5 and I love it. The weird thing and its not a big deal, but is Chrome now the standard default browser? I know that my S4 had the default/ stock internet globe app. But its missing on my S5. Anyone else? I'm on Verizon and using Nova Launcher. I already checked to make sure i didn't hide it. Its not even under the all apps app manager. Thanks

Chrome is the stock browser on the S5 (at least for Verizon...I don't want to say it applies to all versions of the phone since I don't have them all, but I'd assume it applies to most if not all). Samsung doesn't have their own browser on there as they have on past devices.
