    I use Chrome on my Nexus 5 and find it quite fast. But I've also tried Now Browser, which is a pretty lean browser, and it's pretty speedy as well.

    Last I checked, Chrome was one of the better browsers on the market. Opera and Puffin are also pretty good in terms of loading speed, but I didn't notice much of a difference when using those compared to Chrome. Now I just use Chrome since I like the UI best.

    Well you won't really find any that are noticeably better. Maybe try out some of the more popular ones to see if they have other features you like, but in terms of page loading, there isn't going to be any that blow it out of the water.

    I've been using Firefox for a few years and find it quite good for what I do. I've also been playing with Atlas a relatively new browser, free in the Playstore, and for what it does it's extremely quick. You may want to give it a try also.

    I found that Dolphin Browser is fastest, but it doesn't copy and paste. I am currently using Boat Browser which is faster than Opera. All 3 of these browsers support the ICS version of Flash Player which is a must for me.

    Dolphin is what I use. I extensively compared Dolphin to Opera and found that Dolphin handled text reflow a lot more smoothly.

    Text reflow is a HUGE must for me as I read a lot of web pages on my phone and I want the browser to reformat text to the sixe of my screen so I don't have to scroll side to side to read every line. How you Chrome guys tolerate this is utterly beyond me. At the present time only Dolphin and Opera do text reflow. Also I found that while Opera was a superb browser, maybe even faster than Dolphin, it was a bit of a resource hog with regard to effect on battery life. Dolphin seems to be a bit more 'efficient.'

    Huh? Sure it does. I copy and paste all the time from Dolphin. It might be the specific web page you're looking at that prevents this. But Dolphin itself has no effect on the ability to C & P.

    Dolphin for me, simply put its the quickest scrolling browser i've used so far. Chrome, FFox and such like seem to lag when there is a lot of graphical or embedded video content on a page.

    For Opera which one are you using because they list in the Playstore both Opera and Opera Mini?

    I've been using FF, dolphin and chrome for a while and my favourite is the last beta version of chrome. Fast and easy to use. Couple of edges but nothing important for me.
    I've been testing the new Atlas. Nice and good ideas. Worth a try.

    The full Opera. I tried Opera mini but it didn't do text reflow even though there's a setting in there that seems to indicate it did.

    To me Chrome is the most refined browser and I always end up going back to it after trying another option. Make sure you do the about:flags tweaks, they really speed it up.

    Dolphin seemed to be the fastest for me but I still prefer Chrome over anything else.

    I had been using Dolphin for years and finally ditched it. It takes way too long for the keyboard to pop up when I open the app. This suddenly started happening several updates ago and they never really addressed it. Maybe it's because I use SwiftKey but I tested it out with the stock keyboard and found it to be laggy as well. I might try downloading it again because I love the gestures and overall feel of the browser but the keyboard pop up lag was just so annoying. I've been using Firefox and like it alright. I love and always use Firefox for my computer browser.

    I am unable to copy and paste on these forums using Dolphin.

    The fastest browser IMO is puffin browser. It's one of the few browsers that you have to pay for in order to get the full version. But it's fast and you will not get the message that tells you that you're using outdated browser. It's fully flash compatible, which means you will be able to listen to Internet radios and watch videos that require flash video, which most of Android browsers cannot oblige.

    I have tried all of the above browsers and have removed all of them.


    CM Browser is the fastest thing since sliced bread and is my default and only browser now on my phone.

    I like the way it handles text pages when you rotate from vertical to horizontal. It automatically resizes the pages to fill the horizontal screen.

    It also handles bookmarks easier than the others IMO.

    I was looking to see if there was a standard benchmark app that focused on testing browsers and came up with the Vellamo Mobile Suite one component of which is measures some of the popular browsers and the way they function on your particular device. It's a free download in the Playstore. Looks like it could be interesting to run and see if what we are discussing works. .
