How to prevent Facebook from opening external links with its built-in browser (Android tutorial)
Thus, users whose Facebook apps have updated over the past month or so might have been quite surprised when they've tapped on an external link and instead of their beloved and trustworthy Chrome or Mozilla Firefox browser, the Facebook app had decided to open the page with its rather bland built-in browser.

We'll show you the ropes on how to say goodbye to the built-in browser of Facebook for Android.
