    Default Best browser for Galaxy Tab

    I have a Sprint Galaxy Tab and I'm not really digging the stock browser. Its slow and lags a lot. It also has weird issues when scrolling. My HTC Evo 4g has a much better stock browser, actually. I'm looking for a browser that performs at least as good as the stock HTC Evo browser. I've tried several from the market and still have yet to find one that works properly. It's getting to the point now that I feel its a hardware limitation.

    Browsers I tried:

    Xscope
    Dolphin Hd
    Skyfire
    Opera

    Thoughts?

    Thanks.

    P.s. The stock qwerty sucks too.

    Just gave Dolphin Hd another shot. Seems a little better than I originally thought. Still not that great.

    Try Miren browser....looks like the stock browser, but a tad bit quicker and smoother

    I've been using Dolphin HD without issue. I also have flash set to 'on-demand' so it doesn't try to load all the flash elements every time I open a page.

    Can't comment on the 'stock' QWERTY. Always used swype.

    I have been sticking with the Dolphin Mini beta... very smooth.

    I use Dolphin HD never have been a fan of the stock on any Android device, and after setting it up to not view in mobile I haven't had any problems. It runs smoother and faster on my Tab vs my Dinc.

    Stock

    I tried all of them as well, and have stuck with Dolphin HD. It seems to be the best one so far. I use it in full screen mode, and then use the gestures. It is the best I have found so far.

    I also have an EVO, and I agree that the EVO Stock is really nice, but on the Tab I prefer Dolphin.

    What's the major advantage in using the mini version? Does it use major amounts of compression like the Opera Mini browser?

    Yeah, I never needed another browser on my Evo. The stock browser performs great. I think I'm gonna stick with the Dolphin HD browser. Now that I have it set up properly, its fast as hell.

    I also tried a bunch of keyboards and the Smart Keyboard Pro is AMAZING. Simply the best I have yet to see. Absolutely perfect for the Tab. Has a nice big spacebar too, which is one of the reasons I hated the stock browser. Plus you can easily change the skins and it has a ton of options. Very nice keyboard.

    Dolphin HD and Smart Keyboard ftw.

    Either Dolphin or Opera. If I had to choose one it would be Dolphin.

    Hahaha. Dolphin HD just got updated today(check the market) and the update makes it run even smoother! Wow. Very nice browser, I must say. I'm impressed. I'm all in on this browser. Gonna give it a shot on my Evo as well. I wonder if its an actual improvement over the stock Evo browser.
