Rafael, I know you like the stock browser and email but you might wanna try Dolphin HD and use Gmail to try and increase battery life. You can always go back! I was reading that the stock Email actually wastes quite a bit more battery than gmail, because of how the notifications are received/sent. Supposedly no matter how long you set the notification interval it still keeps wanting to receive data anyways.
Yeah, I run flashlight widget, stock KB, Power Control widget. Add to that the news/weather widget, and Touchdown widgets and my phone is working pretty hard when idle.

Never thought GMail would be more effecient than stock E-Mail.
I may give that a whirl. Thanks for the tip.

One reason I would have for switching browsers is to get rid of those two permananet links Verizon put in the stock browser. I wish they would stop trying to lock in crap like that.
