    Ics browser. But it drain my battery fast.
    I use opera mobile a lot, it's battery friendly. :-)
    Only open ics browser to do something that opera mobile can't do. :-P

    How would you get the ICS browser on the Nexus 10? Seriously, just out of curiosity, is it possible to get the ICS browser on any 4.2 device (Nexus 4,7,10, etc.)?

    Firefox also can sync bookmarks and has been doing it longer than Chrome has existed.
    The problem is that many of us use Chrome's desktop version. I don't think Firefox can sync with Chrome.

    That's exactly right - I use Chrome on my desktop/laptop as well. So this kind of dictates my mobile browser choice BUT I still find Chrome to be quite satisfactory on my mobile devices anyway. Chrome has been rather pleasant on my Nexus 10 so far (and works great on my Razr Maxx HD).

    So Chrome runs like crap on the Nexus 10 as well? I've not been pleased with Chrome on my Transformer Prime, and now on my Transformer Infinity. It tends to lag and stutter more often then work smoothly. When I say lag and stutter, I mean you click the "X" on a tab to close it and Chrome takes 5 seconds to do it, etc. I thought it was an Asus related problem with the Transformer series. Guess not?
    I experience this on my Galaxy Tab with stock browser, very annoying. It is also very "laggy" when scrolling, and force closes a lot. I have Chrome on my phone and it works perfect and is very fast. I think I will try that on the tab. So by the looks of it, more than likely it is "Android" related.

    depends. thunderbolt still doesnt have android 4.0+ but i am rooted. so if im running an ICS rom, i use chrome. if im running gingerbread then i usually use teh browser that comes with it, though i did just put firefox on. i have also used opera and that is pretty good.

    That is true. Of course, I use Firefox on the desktop and Chrome can't sync to that

    I will still primarily use Firefox, but today just as soon as the tablet was updated to 4.2.1, an update for Chrome popped up saying "This version update includes a number of stability fixes and performance improvements".

    about:version 18.0.1025469

    Recently I found Ocean browser that it is very good. I have attracted by the smart crop and bookmark function.

    I don't have any of the issues I'm hearing about in this thread on either of my devices. I also don't run custom roms or a ton of apps (and only 1 calendar widget). I like to run very slim, so there's not much else running on my device when I use Chrome.

    I gave Chrome another shot after the recent updates and it still crashes like crazy. Has anyone given Opera a try? I really like Opera but when I installed it on my N10 it seems to think it's on a phone because the toolbars and settings menu's are extremely small. Anyone else have that problem or have a solution? My problem with browsers like Firefox is that bookmarks are not organized into folders.

    I've been using boat. I can't seem to get flash to work on anything else. I'm sure if I put a little more effort...but oh well.

    I've tried Ocean, Dolphin HD Jetpack, Opera and Chrome. And then I found Boat.

    I love how intuitive and quick it is. Loading picture intensive sites like The Verge, Boat loaded faster than all of the other browsers.

    The Speed Dial page is not limited to just 10 bookmarks like Dolphin, and Flash is always supported.

    I have both Home (the Speed Dial page) and Bookmarks (all) icons set in the Utility bar at the bottom, and all the utilitarian add ons (including Full Screen) in the Add On tab by swiping left.

    I had never heard of Boat until joining Nexus 10 forums but so happy I found it.

    Boat uploaded new version last night and now crashes within a minute of use. Rediscovered Firefox Beta and now using it as my default and it runs Flash like Boat did.

    I've been trying Boat today and noticed that it made my tablet noticeably hot on the side where the power and volume buttons are. After going back to firefox the temperature went back down. I rather liked Boat up until that point. I was on tumblr, which uses a lot of javascript.

    I usually use Boat on my Phone, I wonder how it looks and feels on a tablet. I just received my N10 today, I will have to try it.

    I tried Ocean Browser and so far I am impressed, its fast and not resource heavy. You can easily edit the bookmarks, unlike Firefox, were you cant move them around in folders, which is kind of a bonkers omission IMHO.

    I have been Chrome/ Dolphin user on my Galaxy Tab, but now that I can't use Flash on Dolphin, I don't see a reason for it. I am going to try out Boat and Ocean. See which 1 I like.
