Use this new icon on your homepage to open your Chrome browser.

If you are however using the Samsung browser, there "should" be the option to set homepage - not sure why it isn't there.
I was wondering that isn't my phone, and I am trying to help someone without seeing it...I have been told it is the stock one, but I think you are probably right...looking in the settings on my S3 for Chrome I have the General Settings as a heading...I think that is where the confusion has come from...I'll try your suggestion
