Samsung built their own Browser. And it's surprisingly good. No way they'd bump it for this.

Meah, if i ever buy an android. Firefox and duckduckgo are the inly option...

This will likely be pre-installed in the Samsung phones and a lot of people will still use it. At least Microsoft is doing something good after killing groove music. And their Microsoft launcher(Arrow Launcher) is good. So is skype and office apps.
