    In case some of you fell asleep and haven't looked at browser's in the PlayStore in a while Firefox can now be downloaded to the V.

    I posted info here because it mentioned they had decreased the CPU requirements from 800MHz to 600MHz. The stock V's Max is 600MHz and might have glitches and force clorsures.
    Not so with a Custom ROM at over 700MHz though.

    Have been testing for a week now and other than it being a bit annoying to initially navigate and set up, it seems alright.
    Haven't tested to see if it has the proper codec installed to render videos properly yet as I'm using a slow 3G connection and it probably wouldn't give proper results anyway.

    I use Opera mini when on a 3G connection to post here and other forums. When I'm on a WiFi connection, and or, need to download a ROM or other large zip file then Opera Mini fails to download properly.
    For that I use Dolphin Browser. Haven't tried Firefox yet to download a ROM.zip on 3G yet, but will now have to test tonight when I get my fastest speeds, just to see if it can.

    Edit: Totally forgot. Will try tonight.

    I tried Firefox Beta on my V a few weeks ago. It's an okay browser, but still a bit hefty in size. Lately, I've been trying virtually every browser out there, since I was growing dissatisfied with the performance and rendering of Opera Mobile. I still have Opera Mini, since it's great for low-connection situations. I am eagerly anticipating the new Webkit-based Opera Mobile. Sounds like they're going to iron out some of those old bugs.

    Lately, in seeking out a replacement, I've tried just about every browser out there, including UC, Boat, Maxthon, Dolphin and a few others. I settled on Dolphin Mini for now, but I'm not all that crazy about it (why don't browsers make it easy to import bookmarks?). But until the new Opera comes out, I'll have to make do.

    Well, as it states, it's only in beta.

    And it's not exactly ready for prime time. Lots of bugs, no Opera Sync, and some other issues. It's also rather hefty in size, the first release was twice as big as Firefox.

    I haven't been around here much because I've been busy coding an app. I haven't tried Firefox on my OV, but if you ppl want, try out my Lightning Browser

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...wser.barebones

    Unlike Firefox, which will take up a quarter of your internal memory if you don't have LINK2SD, lightning is only a couple hundred KB.
