    Default Have you tried Dolphin Browser HD?

    If you already haven't then it's worth a look. My new default browser.

    I tried it, unistalled after a week. The new Dolphin browser mini is better but I like the simplicity of the stock browser the best.

    Tried Dolphin HD. Seemed too bloated and slow for features I would almost never use. Went back to stock. Tried Dolphin Mini and like it a lot. Enjoy the added features that I will use (gestures and tabs) with a small footprint.

    I've used it ever since jumping to Android. I love it. I have the gesture feature off. Love the tabs, color them customization and desktop orientation for viewing webpages. All in all, I think it's a great browser.

    It has been my browser of choice (in blue) for almost as long as I had this phone... The tabs are great as I am always doing more than one thing.. I love the bookmark sync/Website screenshot and some other add-ons too...

    Been using it since I got the Epic, its prob the most popular browser for android. I am no expert but have read it is pretty much the stuck browser with some features overlayed on top of it.

    Just about summed up everything I love about it. I never even thought to mess with the gesture feature because I thought it would be a big mess. Renders pages perfectly, also uses bookmarks / history / most visited pages really well, and so many others... it was one of the first I downloaded (app wise) and is one of my absolute faves...

    Haven't tried the HD version. Ever since AC posted the article about Dolphin Mini being officially in the market this past weekend, I've been using it ever since. I love it! But based on some of the aforementioned comments, I may have to give the HD edition a whirl.

    The bad thing is, I only have 15 minutes to thoroughly go through it to decide if I want to keep it if I want a refund...

    I know that this is about Dolphin HD, but I looked for this setting in the Mini version. I guess since it's mini, it's not there? I would love to change the color of the tabs as it's currently green. Black would be nice.

    The biggest difference appears to be add-ons for the HD browser. From Dolphin's Blog

    * Dolphin Browser HD is most powerful one among this three, which is only compatible with Android 2.0+ device. You can customize your own browser since Dolphin Browser HD is the first Android Browser supports add-ons. And there are many other minor but useful features to help you get better user experience.
    * Dolphin Browser Mini is aiming at providing a faster user experience for you, which is built on Android 1.6 engine. Dolphin Browser Mini will win all the other browsers with its High speed responsibility. You can treat it as the mini version of Dolphin Browser HD and the upgrade version of Dolphin Browser.
    * Dolphin Browser ( original/ regular) is the earliest version developed by us, which is also built on Android 1.6 engine. It is the first product which build the reputation of Dolphin Browser and win the favor of our users.

    Tried it for a couple of days but went back to stock pretty quickly.

    Don't know if it is just I'm more comfortable with the stock browser or what, but as someone else stated, I enjoy it's simplicity.

    I tried dolphin HD, went back to stock...then a couple days later tried mini and HD again....I just got my evo about a week ago.
    After I learned how to keep dolphin in full screen...one thing I hated at first was all the tabs taking up screen space...I started to love it. The tabs with a swipe to the left, settings with a swipe to the right, and custom gestures are great. I really fell in love when I realized HD will allow you to upload pics from your phone (I do that a lot) and mini won't, I stuck with HD. I also like that infinite tabs you can have open, don't always need more than the stock limit of four, but nice feature when I do. All in all it runs nicely and had become comfortable after just a few days.
