    I installed Chrome the other day and loving it so far on my GS3 for those of you looking for a nice browser.

    Lots of cool new features that I actually use without even thinking about them. Unlimited pages open at once... list goes on and on.

    Give it a try and post what new stuff you find or don't like about it.

    While I agree that is the future path... everyone keeps saying this like it's now or in the very near future. So far from my daily internet usage I don't see this happening so imminently. Flash is still on oh so many websites that I still need it on my phone. Just sayin'

    You should find better websites to visit! Any web developer who uses flash frankly isn't too bright. That means they lose the entire iOS market (which is a huge market) and starting with Android 4.1, they will lose the entire Android market as well! (4.1 and above will not support flash)

    I'm not even going to get into this argument because it's just plain silly. Whether what others do is smart or not the fact is if they are all doing it, until it changes, we are subjected to dealing with it. Let me just say that I just checked and my Amazon Instant Videos which I purchased play through the Adobe Flash Player when I load them up.

    Apple had dealt without Flash for oh so many years. It didn't stop people from making Flash websites and Apple's excuse to why they didn't support Flash was plain BS! They didn't support Flash for one simple reason and every tech knows why - because people could develop their own Flash based apps and games and bypass the iTunes store. In my past 1 & 1/2+ years on my Droid 2 never have I had a problem with flash content on a website, be it audio playback, video playback, apps, etc. Smart phones can handle flash just fine. Apple is a bunch of authoritarian BS artists so I wouldn't use them as a point in proof if I were you

    I think his point is that it is less profitable for a website to use flash because they lose out on the Apple customers. Whether Apple's reasons are justified is a different discussion altogether :P

    I prefer stock because the rss thingy is in the box where you type in the website name so I just tap it and I can add the Site to my rss feed

    Apparently you can't do this on chrome or firefox so ill stick with the stock browser

    And I think pages load pretty fast on the stock so I'm fine with it

    I really want to use this browser. It's fast and smooth, I also love the UI. BUT NOT BEING ABLE TO PLAY VIDEOS is killing it had for me. I can't stand it. So until trays fixed or there is a fix for it I'm using stock.

    Html 5 can create apps too, so your point is invalid about not wanting to have flash for that reason.

    I don't use flash on mobile devices. I haven't for several years & the internets work just fine. Many major sites play video just fine, YouTube works just fine, etc.

    Chrome browser is great & I've really enjoyed it.

    After starting this thread I had noticed more of a battery drain so I uninstalled Chrome yesterday. It looks to have been the issue.

    Dolphin browser is a pretty good alternative to both, in my opinion. Supposedly much faster than both, too.

    No, it's not invalid, it's a fact. I know HTML 5 can do that too but of course Apple would have no choice but to accept that as it's the future of web browsing. They managed to hold out all these years however. With Flash in my mobile browser I've been able to listen to bands songs on their webpages (Embedded flash player) as well as video on others as well as flash interfaces on websites that didn't have mobile versions. I had an iPhone 3G for 2 years and IMO the lack of flash really sucked and did have a negative impact on my browsing.

    Like I said, yeah flash is going the way of the dodo, but right at this point in time many sites are still actively using flash.

    well...responding after my last post above about battery issue after installing Chrome...

    I uninstalled it and have been running for a bit now and battery seems to be much better.
    I didn't change any other apps or install or uninstall anything else, just Chrome.

    So, If after you install Chrome, watch, because it may affect your battery life.
