    HELLO DEAR,


    To change your default browser follow these steps :

    Launch the MENU and tap on SETTINGS icon. Select APPLICATIONS option inside that tap on MANAGE APPLICATION. There you need to hit on the option of ALL. Now you will get the browser which is currently your default. Tap on CLEAR DEFAULTS, this will clear your default browser, no longer it will be your default browser. After this go to that browser which you want to make default, as soon as you open it, you will get the pop up to make it as you default browser. There you can make it as your default browser.

    hello

    You have to change that default web browser option. you have to go to settings of web browsing and choose the web browser , and change it for your browser.

    in 3.6 android , they can ask you to which browser you want to enter then you have to select it.

    you have to download 2broswers only like opera, us browser, Google chrome select any 2 and and try that once it can ask for a default browser.

    or you have to download this
