Android Browser

Does Android default browser have phishing & malware protection?

Not that I am aware of. But then, I won’t use stock, I use Opera Mobile.

The default browser on this Nexus7 tablet is Chrome Mobile. I have never even seen the stock Android one. My browser of choice for Android is Dolphin. It’s really very good.

JB 4.2.2 stock browser is supposed to be Chrome, I’ve read.

Yes it is.
