Google Chrome kinda lags for me. I have tried looking for the stock browser apk but with no luck. I would really appreciate if someone would upload the apk for me. Thanks

I have it from a custom ROM and I think its much better. If you don't want to root dolphin HD browser on the market works just as well on mine. Chrome lagged for me also even stock but some have had better luck.

That sucks, I think chrome is amazing, a lot smoother then all the browsers I've used on my android devices, mainly HTC browser and ICS stock browser

But yes you need root to place the apk with the system apps

Chrome is the stock browser

Everyone says chrome is super fast & smooth & I have to agree, I've had no problems at all with it - it's fantastic.

I have to agree. I like the chrome browser even with the occasional flicker that I get.

By stock browser, I mean the stock browser used in Galaxy Nexus and CM10 builds. For Chrome, I always get these lags when typing on the address bar for both my Galaxy Nexus and Nexus 7 devices. I'm not sure if it's because of my Swiftkey 3 is not playing nice with Chrome, but it certainly works pretty well with the Stock Browser.

If anyone has the jelly bean stock browser apk, i would greatly appreciate it if you could upload it. Thanks

Here is a link to the stock browser
http://db.tt/wzqKpNrU
Directions to install are as follows for those of you not familiar.
Use Root Explorer and copy the Browser.apk from your downloads folder and navigate to the /system/app
Folder and mount the system by tapping the (Mount R/W) button
Then paste the apk,Now you need to set permissions to look like this

Next you need to find the browserproviderproxy.apk and browserproviderproxy.odex If your system has not been deodexed and rename them to browserproviderproxy1.apk and browserproviderproxy1.odex
If you don't do this last step the browser will force close.
Now reboot
Success
Note: You must be rooted (If you hadn't already figured this out)
And I would suggest having your Nexus 7 plugged in via USB and do the reboot using adb commands
That can be done by opening CMD and running the command
adb devices
adb reboot

I finally found the original thread and it can be found below, All thanks should be given the that OP

I've gotten so used to Chrome on the N7 that I hate using the stock browser on my Galaxy nexus. CM10 roms come prebuilt with the Browser app and I hated even getting the option which one to use.

However Facebook did complain about chrome not supporting picture uploads? I had to use the Browser app for that. This was on my phone btw that had both installed. Perhaps Chrome was missing something by default.

I just like the tabs being right there.
