I've installed the unofficial CM11 ROM on my n8010 (transformed it into a n8013) which I much prefer over the stock ROM.

In Dolphin browser, I can hover the s-pen over a link and it treats it as a mouse cursor hover. This is very useful for sites where menus can only be activated through hovering and not by clicking.

In Chrome, this doesn't work.

I don't want to reinstall Stock ROM to check. Can someone tell me if Chrome fails to have hover control with s-pen in Stock ROM or if this is an issue with CM11 and Chrome?

If the latter, would a different kernel or AOSP based ROM work better with s-pen? Stability is my main requirement. I've taken to using Xposed on my phone for customization and would be happy to do the same with the tablet.

Interesting. I updated CM11 and tried chrome, chrome beta, aosp browser, dolphin and firefox.

s-pen hover doesn't work on: chrome, chrome beta, aosp browser
s-pen hover does work on: dolphin and firefox

I wonder why? Maybe I'll try a different ROM when I get a chance.

In general I prefer dolphin to chrome anyway, so it's not a huge loss. I do like the new Lastpass support for chrome, though.
