AOSP Browser will use an old version of Chromium Webview which is very laggy compared to the one used in Chrome...

You're talking about this browser?

Yes. I've followed instructions on installing the older ASOP browser. It installs, but won't open for more than a split second.
I'm slowly getting used to Firefox, but not being able to organize my bookmarks is just ridiculous.

Do you mean it will be laggy on Kitkat or laggy compared to Chrome? Honestly I'd put up with the lag for the ease of use and ability to manage my bookmarks.

At great personal risk, based on the previous LMGTFY posts, I would like to bump this thread.

I just got my Z2, and I notice that there is no AOSP or similar "generic" browser.

Interestingly, my Nvidia Shield Tablet (also 4.4.2) did come with a version of the "standard" ("stock") Android browser as well as Chrome.

Yes, I can try whatever I find in the Play Store, but I would like to hear other users' experiences.
