    Hey folks. I found a web browser that I really like. Is there a way to make it my default browser? I tried to uninstall IE but whaddya know, it won't let me.

    For what it's worth, I think you need to developer unlock the phone to do this. :unsure:

    I wanted to do this myself, but then I realized all the WP browsers are based on IE, so they don't really do anything to help render webpages differently and IE still seems to be the fastest.

    I tried SurfCube for a while, but got tired of watching the load screen every time I launched it and just went back to IE.

    I think when we've actually got some options that AREN'T based on IE, like maybe Opera? or Chrome, then this will be a much more relevant question to me personally. By then hopefully Microsoft will step out of the way and allow us an easy way to do it.

    The browser I like is the metro browser. There is more viewable space on it and give you some extra options too. Cost me .99 cents. I'd like that t be the default, but of course they have that locked down.

    IE9 has the best security in the mobile browsing world. I would be careful to remove it as default browser especially if other browsers built-on IE9 don't tell you what changes apart from UI are involved.

    IE9 is hands down the best mobile browser ever created. Why would one need another browser?
