    I liked the browser on the old DROID 4 better than this chrome browser.

    Alternatives?

    Have you tried AOL or Compuserve? They used to be the most popular.

    It seems like every browser destroys battery. Anyone know of a browser that doesn't require as much juice?

    Early returns have me loving the xscope pro. I was definitely open to paying for a Browser. $3 is a small price to pay to avoid ads.

    I usually close Chrome from the apps tray of I'm not using it. Saves tons of battery.

    Dolphin browser seems to be the only one I've found to reliably load every page I've been to. You can sideload flash player for even more functionality.

    Compuserve. Oh, those were the days. What was the saying? "Compuserve: Everything Sears knows about computing and everything IBM knows about retail."?

    I tend to prefer different browsers for different things & one of my favorites does not run on Kitkat. After a good deal of trial, error & research I found the Baidu Browser. Don't let the odd name fool you, it's laid out beautifully, is blazing fast and once you learn it's features, is just very slick - worth a serious look as an alternative. I use Chrome, Baidu & Dolphin Mini - suits my needd.

    Thanks for the recommendations guys. I don't really want to install firefox again which was okay, but not exactly a small footprint; but I did want to try something new, and "light on it's feet", and your two recommendations seem to fit that bill based on a little cursory research after reading your posts. I've installed both and will give them a try over the next few weeks.

    I'd be interested in your thoughts on Baidu - I love the ability to quickly switch in/out of full screen mode and sliding the bottom tool bar to zoom. Using it more & more.

    Well, I've been using Firefox for the continuity between my laptop & Smartphone. I just picked up Baidu to mess with after I got my Turbo. Yes, it's speedy...But, I'm going to try CM Browser...mucho props for it that I can't ignore. I suppose I could transfer all my bookmarks to it from FF.

    I tried the Baidu browser and I like it, it's really nice just as you said. One major issue for me is I'm having trouble with sites that require a login (site/browser has an error when username an password are put in). Have you experienced this or have any setting suggestions?

    None & I'm signed into a bunch of sites. I might add that both Baidu & the CM browser share the same engine & are very similar with just minor UI differences separating them. Both are blazing fast, both have speed dial, both remember zoom settings & both have (thankfully) an exit button. I'd like to drop one of them but can't decide which so may keep both.

    Ok thanks I'll play with it some more and DL the cm browser and give it a shot too. Thanks again, I appreciate your insight.

    I'm a CM Browser convert, going away from my ole standard Dolphin + Jetpack - just no contest. It's so lean and mean, and has some good security options.

    It is excellent and as I said, identical to Baidu under the hood. I used Dolphin Mini for years as s lightweight browser but either/both of these are light years ahead. I will say that the Droid Turbo is the first device I've owned that doesn't bog using Chrome. I'm using it for most generic searching but for sites I visit daily, it's Baidu or CM. Freaking instant response in a pretty well equipped browser.
