    Default What's Your Primary Browser?

    I can't be the only one suffering from google chrome's cpu eating, phone heating, battery draining application.

    Mozilla has some good reviews. I've read dolphin browser is light on the cpu and doesnt eat your battery...

    Whats your browser? and why?

    I've looked around a lot of battery threads on here and just moto x phone usage screen shots, I've rarely seen anybody with google chrome at top of their list on usage which is why i'm guessing everybody gets 6-8 hours of screen time while I get like 3 hours of on screen time, I browse a lot.

    I use Dolphin, but have never really done it for cpu/battery concerns.

    I dislike the button required to access the tabs and I love the persistent tabs for switching in Dolphin and having my bookmarks/add-ins just a swipe away.

    Wonder why chrome is misbehaving for you. I have it synced and everything and haven't noticed it doing anything weird. I've used dolphin before but not since chrome became the stock browser.

    Browser debate!

    I keep Chrome and Opera on my phone, but they all have little things I don't like and little things I do. Wish I could frankenbrowser.

    I've used Chrome (Beta) for over a year and been pleased with it. Never had a particular issue with battery use that I could clearly link to the Beta version of the browser.

    Any browser equipped with quick controls? That's a deal breaker for me.

    I use Chrome, I have gotten used to Chrome for PC so Chrome for Android is natural for me, and the Moto X handles it like a champ. I switch to Dolphin with user agent Desktop toggled on if I need a non-mobile page.

    I use Chrome pretty much on all my devices. Makes managing bookmarks easier.
