Red face aosp apps to replace samsung keyboard and browser

Hi All,

flash aosp rom yesterday after months on TW. And remember why I go back to TW
Question
1. What keyboard has a number row in aosp rom like TW keyboard
2. What browser zooms into text like the samsung browser. Im amazed how other browsers are bad at zooming text in xda-developers site.

reason I want to try again is TW cant beat how snappy it is and some one said now aosp roms are giving compatable bettery life as TW does.

So any help on getting a TW like keyboard and browser ?

Thanks in advance.

A keyboard you might like Hacker's Keyboard or following this thread http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2164483
As far as the browser I've not really had any problems zooming in using Dolphin Browser, but if you don't care for it you might have luck with this thread http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1969991

Thanks for the tip, but the keyboard apk must be only for 4.2 roms as it did not work on SlimKat 4.4.2 since it did not launch the keyboard.

Dolphin browser is perfect for replacing the Samsung browser. Chrome always gives issues when zooming in to text. In Chrome some text was huge while other small. Thanks again
