Google Back when I reviewed the Nexus 7, I mentioned that I was disappointed with Chrome for Android. It often felt slow, would hang, and typing in the address bar and input fields on webpages would lag. Scrolling wasn't always optimal, and sometimes, it would simply freeze up altogether. We're several months down the line now - has the situation improved for me?

It is the default browser in Jellybean on the Nexus 7. There you go... reason enough.

Yeah, but it's not like you buy an android device to not ever look around for apps. It's the first thing you do: (1) install your favorite apps and (2) not use what sucks :-)

To be clear - Google have removed the "Browser" from Jellbean on the Nexus 7, so there really *is* no other browser installed without any further user action. Consumers don't "go looking for other apps." Not before they give 1 star reviews. Don't assume that you are an average consumer if the first thing you do is look for other apps. Most consumers are buying the Nexus 7 after never owning a tablet device device, many without ever using Android before. You are the exception, not the rule.
