    Default What browser do you use? & why?

    I just picked up the new RAZR Maxx HD, I'm really liking the features on the Chrome browser that comes stock on the phone. Wish it had the Quick Controls though, that feature looks awesome. Hopefully chrome supports that one day soon...

    So what browser do you use?

    I'm using Dolphin HD. Clean interface and faster than any other mobile browser (fact)

    No doubt. Dolphin is a fast, reliable browser. That's what I use on my Android, 2nd choice is Firefox (beta version still), but Chrome is alright, no need to sweat it.

    Cool.. I'm gonna check dolphin out again. I used it before back in the day, mainly just too get wallpapers for my device though. Never really gave the browser & its functions a chance.

    I'm using Firefox. It's what I use on my PC so I just went with it on my phone. I've never tried anything else in my phone. Never thought it necessary.

    Anyone using Opera mini? That's pretty nice.

    I like Dolphin and Opera because they have homepages. The stock browser/Chrome fail on that. It just seems easier to start from a familiar page.

    I use firefox, it syncs with all my desktop firefoxs very well. all the bookmarks, visited sites, history, passwords, etc, all synced. I don't feel like put link all my personal stuff through google email. Mozilla Sync seems safer, if only because its less a target of hackers.

    It is quite fast also, and now has theme support, lol

    Nice, thanks for the info. I've always been a fan of Firefox.. never really gave there mobile browser a chance though. Didnt know it had all those sync capabilities either. Sounds like I might have too try quite a few different ones out... thanks guys!

    I don't like how firefox doesn't have a homepage, and I HATE how you have to hit menu then quit to actually close it. Other browsers close with the back arrow on the phone

    the top sites works for me so far, im unsure at this time if i prefer a homepage or not, lol

    back to close is implemented in the next version. i swear a lot of people love the quit button. there are already two addons to restore it.

    Dolphin most of the time and Chrome as my backup.
