Default Browsers

so I have the Samsung Note 2 and the stock browser does not have a setting to view in desktop as a default option. when you check the desktop view in the menu when loading a page it does not remember this option nor is it a permanant thing. In other words everytime you go to a web page you must go to menu and check the desktop view everytime. well this sucks. I have been trying all different browsers and all of them seem to have there defects. Dolphin doesnt support flash but allows you to view in desktop. boat browser doesnt import bookmarks and has no home screen button. Chrome is invasive and again wont import bookmarks, ninesky and UC browsers just plain suck. Does anyone know of the perfect browser? lmk please

There is no perfect browser; but I use xscope 99% of the time; I know there are folks who like opera though I found it a bit gui heavy.

Yes, it does. It's the only browser that I use.
