    Default Browser... Which one are you running.

    Just to let everyone out there know if your new to Android, you can use a different browser. Give it a shot.

    So which browser is everyone running on the Maxx.. Here are a few that I have played around with. So far i'm liking boat. Still no Google Chrome as of yet :-(

    Opera

    Dolphin

    Boat

    Stock

    Opera mobile. It has a turbo feature which compresses the images for faster loading. It also uses less data which is good for limited data plans.

    Using the stock. I don't use the browser a whole lot so I might as well save a little space, too.

    I use Opera on my DInc. The HTC browser is crap. But, I'm not in love with Opera. Will give the MAXX stock a spin for a while once I get it. Then, obviously, Chrome once ICS comes around.

    Stock works great for me... don't need or want the overhead of any other browser.

    Of course. Each one has its own +'s and -'s. I've listed a few and so have some others that posted on this thread. You can go to the Market and type in "browser" in the search field.

    I'm fooling around with Dolphin Mini and Boat. The latter appears to have a lot of potential.

    Trying "boat" after reading this thread. Never heard of it before. What a well kept secret this is. Pretty sweet.

    Boat also has a full screen feature that gives you full use of the screen for browsing the internet.

    I use to use Opera and Dolphin. However after upgrading to ICS I pretty much use stock i like the stock UI and speed much more than opera or dolphin. Chrome is nice but I still perfer stock.

    Talking Re: Browser... Which one are you running.

    Dolphin is by far the best. The best and most plug ins. Faster on all benchmarks than stock. Just stayed using Maxthon here and there. Seems like chrome for desktop. Very fast as well.
