    Chrome but I honestly have not tried others except stock browser. There are so many things I have not tried on this phone it is mind boggling.

    One of the things I like about the stock browser is it's easy to change your User Agent so if something isn't working right on a site or you want the full version of the site, you can switch to Desktop and the server will deliver you to that version of the code. Also has iPhone, iPad and several flavors of Android OS if you need them.

    I don't think my stock browser does any of that except the desktop view. Lucky you guys.

    I have to say that the stock browser, after I downloaded Flash, does everything. There really isn't any site that i haven't been able to use, via the stock. I have Chrome because I feel like I'm supposed to have it, and I use Dolphin Beta when I want to zoom in on some text and have it fit to screen (one of the few things stock doesn't do).

    I am very impressed with the stock browser.

    I haven't used Dolphin for over a year. I used to like Boat and Mirren too but nowadays I use Firefox. I did not like it when it first came out but now it has come a long way and is now my favorite browser - with PC sync and last pass. Chrome is still very good too, especially since it syncs with my tablet as well.

    I believe firefox syncs over all devices as well, tablet included

    I believe firefox for android does that too, there is also a addon called "phony" that can change UA to a lot of specific strings, including iOS, android, desktop, etc.

    I'm surprised that nobody mentioned the fact that Chrome doesn't support flash. Even once you have installed it on the phone. I use Chrome for my day to day things, but if I know that I am going to a page with embedded video (that is probably flash) then I use the stock browser.

    I have Dolphin Beta and chrome and I also have flash installed but I hate that I can't see the videos on Espn anymore. How do I go back to the stock browser?

    Wait a minute, I do still use the stock browser but it still won't do the ESPN videos. It always says I need Adobe Flash even though I do have it installed. Oh well.

    I don't know if it matters, but are you on the mobile site or full site? I just went to ESPN on the stock browser and watched a video on ESPN.


    Although, I pulled it up in Chrome (mobile site) and it played the video too. So maybe I don't know much after all.

    IMO Chrome overall but when it comes to speed I find Mozilla Firefox.

    Boat for the excellent text and graphic rendition (always just the right size or a tap away) and the easy to use GUI. Dolphin has pretty good rendition and GUI as well

    I've tried several but always come back to Boat. I like the UI and how easy it is to customize the tool bar.

    Boat browser is my favorite.
    Allows me to zoom in and double tap the screen, allowing me to reflow the text

    How do I get the embedded videos in the browser automatically launch in YouTube?

    A bit overwhelmed by this awesome Galaxy S4.
