    Chrome is WebKit based, and the browser is very much alike to Chrome. I don't think Google is actually considering it Chrome, but it's pretty damn close to it.

    I've played around with FF4 a bit, and honestly I'm not all that thrilled. Mainly with the graphic scaling...it seems to have a very pixelated look :-(

    I've used Firefox for Android on Xoom. Its ok. I agree with others who have said that it isn't all that impressive.

    I have used FF for a couple of days now.

    I'm going back to the stock browser. They rushed it, and it's worse on the Desktop version that continually crashes.

    I can't even find my damned bookmarks and as someone mentioned, it's very slow and pixelated.

    I installed it yesterday after I got my Xoom from UPS and Beknatok nagged me to death to do it. It's not a bad browser, it just took some getting used to especially if you didn't use any of the betas.

    First off, your tabs are hidden to the left. Swipe from the left edge to the right an inch or so and you'll see the tabs there, plus a button at the bottom to add a new tab. To get to your bookmarks, tap the address bar. There'll be a screen that comes up with a number of tabs, including Bookmarks. Your navigation buttons are hidden to to right. Same as with the other edge, swipe from the right edge to the left an inch and a small bar appears with a Star button (add/edit/remove bookmark for this page), back and forward buttons, and the Settings button to the bottom. To hide either bar, just drag the page itself towards the bar.

    If you're using Firefox Sync to get your bookmarks from your desk, I too noticed at first that none of my bookmarks showed up after I set up the sync. I had to manually force a sync to offer by going to Setings, hitting the "Details" button under the Sync section and pressed "Sync Now". It took a minute or two for my mountain of bookmarks but it worked. After that, in the Bookmarks tab I mentioned about, you'll see a folder called "Desktop Bookmarks" that contains all your bookmarks from the desktop version of Firefox.

    Hope that helps anybody else who didn't know these tricks. Drove me nuts for a bit until I learned those tips.

    If you use firefox on desktop, firefox on android should be more attractive, as it syncs bookmark, history, passwords, filled forms, even opened tabs with desktop firefox.

    the stock browser on android isn't that good, even comparing to chrome on the desktop. Firefox mobile js benchmark is almost twice as fast as the android stock browser.

    Thw downside of firefox mobile, right now, is no flash, and no webpage text copy and paste.

    I started using Dolphin mini and it works the best, in my opinion, thus far. For example, I went to Sirius site, played the online player (Howard Stern 100), and went back to my home screen and the station continued to play. I've tried this with the stock browser, and everytime I left the app. the music player stopped.

    Yeah good thing its free they need to work on it. Its glitchy , pixelated, laggy, and I really don't like it. I use ff4 for my computer and I'm die hard fan of it. But on my Xoom I am going to stick with the native it works fine.

    Firefox has an image scaling bug they are still working on, and no flash support right now. However, it does behave better with an AJAX webApp my company is developing so i have it installed and use it sometimes...
