    Default Top Browser?

    Just got my Samsung GS3 - came from iPhone...

    Reading about these browsers, the stock seems quick but I hate how the bookmarks are situated. I downloaded dolphin hd and am thinking of downloading the chrome browser. Most of the comments I searched for were a month or more ago and I see chrome has updated some stuff since then.

    One thing I noticed, dolphin is only 5 mb or so but chrome is 18.99 mb, why so big and the big diff??

    What is your browser experience...?

    Personally, I use Firefox on my Windows and Linux machines and also on Android. My bookmarks and major settings are synced automatically and easily across all my devices, and Firefox supports flash on Android pretty well.

    Maybe because dolphin uses plug ins you download where as Google just had it all in one

    Chrome is by far the best in my opinion, I've had over thirty tabs open for weeks now and it always seems to run perfect and smooth

    If you use chrome on your laptop/computer then you really need it on your phone, even if it's just to sync your bookmarks

    Chrome was nice but it didn't play nice with 3rd party keyboards, dolphin was great until my jelly bean update, not sure what happened, Firefox has been great for me so far

    I use dolphin. I don't know how to make Chrome tabs tabbed. It's always like windows where you swipe it from left to right and vv. I don't know if I just had my settings wrong but that's the reason why I changed from Google C to dolphin.

    Thanks for all the responses. I went ahead and downloaded Chrome to test it first hand. Wow, it's very fast. Noticeably faster than Dolphin. I had my wife check and she said no comparison. I do like dolphin's tabs at the top and chrome handles tabs differently, but it synced right up with my desktop bookmarks and voila they were all right there.

    Going to use Chrome for now. But keep Dolphin if I need flash.

    My stock browser syncs the bookmarks with Chrome on my desktop. Not sure why people think Chrome is needed on the S3 to sync bookmarks.

    I use the stock browser 90% of the time but have Chrome and Dolphin installed as well.

    That's actually my favorite part of chrome is how it handles tabs. I have a small 4.8inch screen in front of me. I don't wanna look at an address bar with tabs taking up and inch of that space. I love chrome

    I keep trying dolphin. The reviews are so good. But there is no comparison in speed to chrome.

    Stock browser is right there with it. And both sync bookmarks.

    Not sure the dolphin love affair.

    Idk, dolphin is noticeably faster than stock for me. I love the flash support but my absolute favorite feature is the way it swipes and handles bookmarks.

    I must admit not even trying chrome though.. you guys think its worth trying even though im happy w dolphin? What are the main differences between the two browsers?

    Some differences are that dolphin supports flash while chrome doesn't. Chrome has a desktop application (Which allows you to sync tabs) while Dolphin doesn't. Speed wise (IMO) they're about the same. I think you should give chrome a try and if you don't like it then uninstall it and continue using dolphin.

    I tried syncing bookmarks with dolphin but couldn't get it to work. I like on chrome that there are "desktop bookmarks" so things I have saved on my computer are mobile. It also lets you save bookmarks as mobile bookmarks so just your sites you go to on phone can be saved there.

    Note: in the app store it says chrome is 18.94 mb but really is 45+mb when downloaded. Or at least when u go into app manager it is.

    Love Dolphin browser with the X-Marks bookmarks add-on. I have used X-Marks for Firefox forever and it works great with Dolphin also.
