Default unnerving one-finger zoom in browsers since .402 update!

Unfortunately the .402 update has brought at least one new feature which is really unnerving me.

In browsers based on Android Kitkat's own rendering engine (Chrome, Habit Browser and many others) there is now a one-finger-zoom like in Google Maps: Tap twice, then hold, then drag finger for zooming in or out.

This totally smashes the browsing experience because, when I scroll fast through webpages, again and again the browser registers double-taps&hold and zooms although I don't want it!!

I absolutely don't need this one-finger zoom crap! (May be useful on a smaller phone which is operated one-handedly, but not on a tablet!)

Anyone a clue how this behavior can be disabled??

Also,mi think that they screwed up tapping on links I chrome. Now I have to tap it two or more times if it is not zoomed. Thos problems ocurrs only in chrome

Yes, in Chrome or Chrome-derived browsers the click behavior is worse than before. I also have to click more than once sometimes, and it is simply more sluggish, while with .36 links reacted perfectly and very snappy...
