    Question Stock Browser vs Others(First post to this community)

    Hello everyone, I have just got my HTC One about 2 months back after I have been part of the Galaxy Nexus community for awhile.

    Anyway, I have been wondering about the stock browser. I have been reading it is generally faster, and can support plugin unlike other browsers, but I honestly just want to make sure.

    Also on that note I was wondering if it also does sandboxing like most of the browsers do, and if it does not is it generally less secure than the others?

    Any input is appreciated

    Stock ROM: Android 4.3

    I use Chrome and I like it so far. It can be used on all devices and the interface isn't to bad. But I'd try a few and see what you like best. At the end of the day its all about your needs!

    there was a thread like this one a while back and many people suggested Dolphin browser.

    apparently it does well in the speed department.



    i just use chrome because it syncs with my desktop's browser as well... otherwise not a big fan of it (i find it slow and clunky).

    I like and use the HTC stock browser on my One. It auto fits texts and Web site better than Chrome.

    It doesn't auto-sync open pages on a computer browser like Chrome does, but bookmarks get synced.

    I only use Chrome for the auto-sync feature when I'm doing something on the laptop and forget to bookmark it.
