(Only for stock Jelly Bean)

If you prefer the AOSP browser to Samsung's browser like me, use the attached CWM file.

Reasons why AOSP Browser is better:
- Easier to close tabs, just swipe them to the side
- Better bookmarks interface
- Adress bar not cluttered, no unnecessary buttons
- Feels faster (to me)
- Black interface, so looks nicer (to me)

Important tip 1: If after flashing the browser force closes, you need to clear browser data after rebooting.
Settings->Applications Manager->All->Browser->Clear Data

Important tip 2: If your google bookmarks disappeared, simply sync browser bookmarks again and they'll come back.

Browser is taken from CM10, so thanks to TeamHacksung.

Works for me with omega dli5. Try to clear browser data, settings/applications manager/swipe to "all" tab/find browser and press it/press "clear data", now check if it works.
