Chrome is great especially because it can sync your bookmarks to all your devices and even your PC. That's its biggest advantage with quick fixes and security !

My other favorites are

Opera Classic
Dolphin Browser
Opera Browser

The Stock Browser is now Chrome but before it was another one which I never liked! Try Dolphin and Opera Classic and you will surely like them!

I've always deleted/disabled chrome and almost all google bundled bloatware on any phone/tablet in our house. I had a tough time shoehorning stock/aosp browser to replace chrome, till I stumbled onto lightning browser. Fast, lightweight, able to change search engine to DDG, able to change device string to whatever you want (Froyo N1) (just like AOSP), and works as a user app. I prefer downloading from their dedicated thread on XDA, or from the F-Droid store.

Quick and doesn't store personal data. Works well with orbot too.

I use baidu browser, it works great for me since it has quick launcher floating over the homescreen with website to be customised
