Re: Is there a better browser for the Charge?
Thanks everyone for all the tips and suggestions. Based on your feedback, I installed Firefox Beta (version 6), Opera Mobile (not mini), Skyfire, Miren, and Dolphin HD. I tried them all to see how they handled the above quoted circumstances. Here is an example of the problem I was having. When my daily schedule was displayed in the internet window, you could see everything from 10 AM until 7:59 PM. The problem is, you can't scroll up to see if an appointment was scheduled at 9 AM or down to see if there is something at 8 PM.

For all other browsing, you will want to use something else for now.
Opera Mobile seemed to provide the worst support. The performance was underwhelming. So, Opera is out.
Skyfire and Miren do not provide the support I was looking for in my initial question. Both seemed to perform well. These browsers have their niches. I just don't have a reason to keep them on my phone at this time.
Dolphin HD is the fastest browser. It does not provide the support I was hoping to find in my initial question. It does however seem to work as well as the stock browser, but just a little faster.
EDIT: I also tried xScope. It did not do any better than other browsers and had problems rendering parts of the web page.
I'm not an expert. There are lots of folks in this forum that can likely add a lot to my comments. Some of these browsers fill a particular niche, like Firefox Beta does for me. The only browser that I truly did not like was Opera Mobile. I also don’t know if there is any value to the integration of the stock browser over a non-stock browser like Dolphin HD.
Thanks again for all your suggestions!!
