    Anyone using the Dolphin HD browser? Seems very fast compared to the stock browser, and you can set the UAstring to Desktop by default if you wish. So far it has perfomed well for me.

    Using it, but it crash a lot. Although, I still use it, just because to me it's a lot better than the stock browser or any third party browser that is out there.

    Opera is now honeycomb optimized and if u enable turboboost it compresses on opera's server for faster speeds!

    I use the stock one no issues. Tried opera and that was OK. If rooted 3g Xoom they have a permanent fix for the browser to not go to mobile sites.

    I have actually had a situation where Opera majorly outperformed the stick browser.

    If you browse around developer.android.com you will that the stock browser really sucks.

    Looks like Dolphin HD have an update available right now. One of the items is fixed crashes on Xoom. Well here's hoping. So far so good.

    I got the update yesterday and have seen a major improvement. whenever I had multiple tabs open and switched applications Dolphin Browser used to crash when I would return. It also crashed a lot when I switched between tab. I have not seen these problems since early yesterday when I got the update.

    Ditto. Everyone since 4.6 got released, I haven't had HD crash once.

    I'm happy again!

    Any news on the Dolphin Browser for Pad? I really thought that would have been out of private beta by now.

    I love the Dolphin Browser, but it was crashing so often that I was having to switch back to the stock browser a lot. It seems more stable since the update, so I hope that's a good sign.

    I didn't try it before the update but it seems to work pretty good right now. I did get one crash earlier.

    There's definitely still crashes, but way, way less than before. Looking promising...

    Dolphin works perfect for me so far. I've found it to be a bit slower than stock but nothing I can't live with.

    I use Dolphin HD on my Xoom as well as my Droid X, and would not use anything else. I've tried others and kept coming back to Dolphin HD. Never any problems at all, never crashed on me. I use it set to Desktop. And I find it definitely fast than stock browser.

    try going to a web site from your bookmarks.you should get a window pop up with the option to choose witch browser you want.you can set it to default from there.all your links are on the left of your screen,just swipe to the right to see them.use the menu tab to set your email as a bookmark or your home screen if you want.

    There's an option in the Dolphin HD settings to make it the default browser. If that doesn't work, go to the xoom's settings > applications > all applications > Browser > clear defaults. Then when you open a link in gmail or another app, it'll ask you which app you want to open it as.

    Nope. It is just a setting that you set in the options. Really easy and carefree. I can't recommend this browser enough. I love the gestures, the performance, add-ons, and pretty much how easy it is to use. Was never a big fan using it on my phones but it makes a lot of sense on tablets.
