Default Stock Browser

I was at Best Buy today and i noticed that the S5 they had on their display had a different stock Browser.

did Verizon only leave Chrome on this device or is this normal?

I actually liked the stock browser but where can we get it?

Edit: Realized should have posted this on Q&A sorry guys!

Verizon typically removed the stock browser for Chrome. Once root is achieved, people usually grab the stock browser from a T-Mobile device to install on the others. I did it with my G2.

Not 100% true (in the cases of S4 and Note 3 at least). Both stock Samsung browser and Chrome are there even on the latest build. If OP is correct this would be a first actually.

But that's okay since Samsung browser no longer works with flash anyways Chrome is far better. Less apps on the device is not much to complain about.
