    I use Opera Mobile in desktop mode for my everyday browsing needs.

    I use full-screen Dolphin in mobile mode to view Facebook, since their Android app sucks so bad.

    Am trying out ICS B+. It looks like it has a lot of promise but pinch-to-zoom is not working for me. That's fatal for now if I can't figure out what the issue is.

    Thanks, Robrecht

    Regarding ICSB+, what I've noticed about pinch to zoom is that you cannot pinch to zoom larger than your double tap zoom setting or default zoom setting.

    The double tap setting is located in settings/accessibility. You set it as a percentage. That limits your max zoom.

    You can also set a zoom default in settings/advanced/default zoom.

    You can set zoom behavior pretty much any way you wish with those two settings.

    i want to try chrome, but the lack of the quick controls or whatever theyre called in the stock browser is really keeping me from using it. the quick controls make using a mobile browser soo much better.

    i dont have any problems with the stock browser either since it syncs my bookmarks with chrome perfectly fine... getting tabs synched would be nice i guess, but i dont think it would really improve my life much since im typically looking at completely different things across devices.

    Thanks for the explanation, but this still seems very weird. Double-tap to zoom seems to max out at 125 percent. Text reflow seems to only work sometimes. I'll keep playing with the settings.

    can i ask.. do Opera Mini browser's servers work in the US? thats a really good browser if u dont mind losing a few features, have a bad signal or need to cut down your data use. the servers condense and render the pages for u and send it to the phone in a much smaller size so its fast and uses way less mb

    Yes, they work in the US. Despite their claims, however, it seems to me that Opera is slower than stock, at least on some websites, and links frequently to not work correctly.

    hmm. i always used Mini in the past but on s3 the speed difference seems negligable. maybe coz the s3 browsing is so fast?

    I haven't used Mini much at all. My experience is really with Opera Mobile. I would expect Mini to be faster.

    Sorry, I meant Opera Mobile. I'm so confused by all the different browsers I've tried recently in the quest for the best one. They all have failings. It seems to me most of the browsers are worse in ICS than previous versions of Android, if only because of the problems with continuous scaling of text and reflow.
