 I discussed this with a reliable friend (Xavier Douville). According to
 him, by default, vanilla Android comes with a browser which is not Chrome,
 but an Android-specific browser. Apparently, this browser does not have a
 name besides "Android browser" or "Android web browser": https://android-

 It is rare to see this browser, because almost no manufacturer ships
 vanilla Android. Manufacturers preinstall a modified Android which comes
 with a different browser, like Samsung's. Moreover, according to
 bean-149740/ this article] even vanilla Android no longer uses that
 browser by default since Android version 4.2.

 I suggest to describe this browser as "Android's integrated Android-
 specific browser".
