when you click any link in whatsapp or Gmail, the links automatically opens with opera mini or chrome browser. Well that happens when you choose any browser or application as a default application and the phone saves your settings I his memory, so next time you click on links you’ll be automatically redirected to the default applications.
This change can be easily removed from the application manager tab in your Android phone. Below are the steps I followed to clear the default application.
Let’s say when you click on any link in Whatsapp it opens with Opera mini, but aren’t interested in using opera and you love to get the list of all installed browsers in your phone. Like complete Task using Google Chrome, UC Browser, Mozilla Firefox etc. Follow the steps below.
