Default Removing stock browser

How can I remove the stock browser? I'm using opera so want to get rid of it. My phone is rooted, I have used titanium backup to get rid of some other things, but can't find the browser in it.

the system app of bookmarks is your browser.
delete that using titanium and u'll get rid of the stock browser.
But mind that flash player wont run in opera mini, so if u use flash player to view videos on youtube, u'll need Stock browser.

you will probably have problems with the market if you remove the stock browser. I wouldn't delete it

Bookmarks is just the bookmarks widget. There is a separate app called "Browser". Before you uninstall it why dont you freeze it first for a few days, see if it is causing any problems with market or anything else, then uninstall it. You can freez using many root apps - both free and paid. eg. Link2SD (free) and Titanium Backup Pro (paid).

I actually uninstalled bookmarks and kept the stock browser. Note that you'll need to flash if you need the default browser again.

Adobe Flash Player does not officially support our processor but we can use a modified unofficial version of adobe flash player. Follow this thread to install flash player.
