    Default Best Browser for the M8

    Anyone played around with all the browsers out there for this phone? I know there are tons of articles about what android browser is best, but i'm wondering if there is a good match specifically for this phone. I usually go with dolphin, but i heard good things about puffin. I tried it out but there seemed to be problems where the pages would just stay blank. Anyone found the perfect match? I like the fact that chrome has all my stored info from google and my desktop, but i hear bad things about memory hog issues.


    Also, what browser has the best auto fit to screen features? With dolphin, it will auto fit, but only at a specific text size. (As far as i can tell.) I want to auto fit at whatever size i zoom in to. Thoughts?

    Chrome is a bit of a memory hog, but the M8 has plenty of memory to spare.

    This. I use chrome on all my products. Love the fact I can access my bookmarks and history and open tabs on everything. The m8 has a ton of memory and it works flawlessly.

    I've found Google chrome to be a terrible memory hog and waste of resources. I used to use it in the past but now only dolphin

    I use Chrome but I'm wondering if anyone can recommend a browser which can export bookmarks for use in other browsers? Chrome doesn't, as far as I can tell (neither does Firefox).

    I use Opera because it handles text reflow/autofit well . Chrome does not do text reflow.

    Dolphin has sync which you can save and manage bookmarks across multiple devices.

    Thanks. I'm actually looking for a new browser now, because none of the few I've tried (Chrome, Firefox, Puffin) can display the unbelievably buggy Aio registration page without losing a large edge of it.
