Right? I don't think my S5 even had a shortcut to Chrome when I booted it up. I had to launch a Google Search to get online. I'm half temped to see if I or someone can backup the browser apk from my S4 and side load it on here. I have a sneaky suspicion that it's not compatible with android 4.4 in part because it's one of the only browsers I've used that allows you to set the default download location to the extSdCard. For this, Chrome sucks, and for no damn good reason.

I was wondering the same thing when I first got my S5. I asked about it in another thread & was told that Google Chrome is now the default browser.

Verizon deleted the stock browser from the S5 and the One M8. I was mad. Chrome is a resource and battery hog. I liked the new Samsung browser. Ugggh Verizon.

As of now, just Chrome. That's the only one it came with. I'm just waiting for root to flash the stock Samsung browser. I could download something else from the Play Store, but I'll just wait on root.
