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.

Moved to Q&A as OP already noticed it should have been there.
