    So I've been really jealous of iOS' web browser and now that it has "native" adblock support it has me wanting a solution for Android?

    I really like Chrome, its quick looks good and renders all sites quickly.

    Firefox doesn't render Google searches properly. Actually it has issues with more sites than I'd like it to. I later discovered its because the user agent is set to mobile rather than Android. I tried using user agents add on to fix it and it does a decent job but there's square and weird things that happen.

    My fiancée and I were looking at the best princesses of all time, weird I know, but it let me discover and issue with Firefox other than aesthetics. Anyway E! Online had a list of best princesses that I couldn't scroll very well with Firefox. Opened it in chrome and it scrolled great.

    So I hunted for others, but they seem too skinned in a sense. Some were slower, others wouldn't open apps like YouTube, but instead would play in browser.

    Long story short, I lose I can't find a good solution.

    Have you tried Dolphin Browser? That has an AdBlock feature that can be used. It does note that rendering issues may occur. However, it may be worth a shot to see if it's an acceptable solution for you.

    Dolphin is good, with ad-block add-on

    Firefox has the capability of using extensions on its Android version. I use uBlock Origin on Firefox for Android, and it works great.

    Unfortunately Firefox doesn't render things properly. Otherwise that'd be a good choice.
