Default Stock browser default?

Hey all. Recently installed Viper Rom on my HTC One and my "Internet" browser is set as default and I haven't gotten an option to set Chrome as default. Also I cannot find a way to do it. Someone said to goto Settings > Applications > All > Internet and reset the settings... but when I goto Applications, the stock browser isnt even in there. Could I just delete it with Titanium Back or would that cause problems?

Try going to chrome and selecting to clear the defaults. That might free up the Internet default and allow you to make chrome your default.

Try installing a new browser from the Play Store, then follow a link from some app (forum browser, email, anything). Since you've installed a new browser it should ask you again which app you would like to handle the intent, in which case you can choose Chrome and tell it to make this the default.

I used to remove the stock browser on my previous phone and it worked fine until I installed one app which needed to open a browser page for one task and clearly had been coded to use the stock system browser, which I didn't have installed! Apart from that one app (which you are unlikely to be using yourself, as it has a pretty specialised audience ) I got by fine without a stock browser. Keep a backup if you go that way though, and maybe consider "freeze" rather than "uninstall".

Genius. Installing another browser solved it.
