So that using google search widget opens up chrome instead of the ics browser
Head to Settings -> Apps -> All -> Internet -> Clear Defaults. Next time you do a search or open a link, you'll be given a choice of which app you want to open it with. Select Chrome and put a tick in the "Make Default" checkbox and that should make Chrome the default browser.
Awesome thanks. which browser do you like best?
I use Chrome on my phone, but I quite like Boat Browser too (I use it on my tablet). I reckon you'd be happy with either of those.
Wouldn't it work also to go in:
Settings -> App Association -> Web URLS and choose the browser you want?
Or is it a different setting?
I can't see that option anywhere, is that the exact location?
Yes it's actually right under the apps as you described above
I don't have that option at all. Are you stock yeah?
Do you have international version? Maybe that's why.
Yeah, could be. Seems strange to omit it though
I use Dolphin and there is a setting under the settings menu "make dolphin my default browser"
Yep have the att version.
It's pretty usefull option where you can setup default app for a few actions, I can try to make snapshots later.
Here are screenshots (sorry if there too big, first time I'm doing this way)
Thanks. Definitely not there on the international version. Shame, it looks quite handy.
This helped me aswell, thank you.
Go to Settings, App Association, Web URLS and select Chrome in the open web URLS box.
I use the option to launch the browser by double tapping the home button. Even if all of my others apps use Chrome as default this does not prompt me and just always opens the built-in browser. Is there a way around this? I want double-tap home to open Chrome. Thanks.
I didn't even know the double press of the Home button could be made to launch the browser, at least with the Sense launcher.
But if you use an alternative launcher like Apex or Nova, you can set it up so that pressing the home button twice launches an app (first press takes you to home screen, second press launches the app)
