    Cannot find any browser icons.Just downloaded Opera but icon doesn't show and other browsers are not to been seen. I would like to choose which browser to use but at the moment when I click on Internet I only get Chrome. Any advice/solution would be welcome.

    Odd about the stock browser. It calls itself 'internet', and is a blue Earth icon in my app drawer. Chrome should be in the Google folder in the app drawer.

    When you say "drawer", what are you referring to?

    From any home screen (the screen your presented with when you unlock your phone) the "apps drawer" is accessible from the bottom right icon, that on an unmodified Note 3 looks like a 4x4 grid of tiny squares. Once tapped you'll be presented with your installed and apps or widgets. To change between the two there is a choice at the top of the screen. In an unmodified Note 3 there are two folders amongst the screens of separate apps (swipe between the screens in the app drawer like you can with home screens) one is "Google", where Chrome should be; the other is "Samsung" where Samsung apps are.

    This is part of the problem. Whilst there is an icon for Samsung apps there is nothing showing for google in any screen. Had it on my Note 2 but nothing on my Note 3.

    No sooner did I post the last reply than I did another search for it and there it was on one of my favorites pages. Must be going blind or there's a Android spirit about.
