You cannot update inbuilt browser even though your phone is rooted. Anyway you have some other good alternative browsers in market like Dolphin, Opera.

I am not sure if the browser can be updated, even with root. The best thing is to root your device and install a better ROM, if you are stuck on an old Android version and unhappy with the browser.
