Default So far... I like ICS

I am not as keen on the app drawer transitions, but once I updated my apps so they wouldn't FC this is snappy. Chrome for ICS is soooo Fast compared to Dolphin or the Honeycomb browser.

My tablet didn't notify me, but for giggles I did a "check for software update" and it found it.

I just updated here and I have to say the new browser is amazing! No lags with typing and loads a lot faster than it used to - and that's for all the pages I go to so far. I'm happy so far.

Off to make sure my favorite apps still work

I just got it myself and am trying it out. It seems very responsive with the keyboard dock. That was an issue before. I'm using the stock browser right now to type this message.

Trying out Dolphin HD now. Sorry just wanted to type to see how well it works. Pretty good. I just noticed that the spell check works on this browser. Pretty cool.

I tried to move a file within Polaris Office from the internal memory to the microsd... the copy failed and it deleted/lost the original. That is no good...

I've been having difficulty with viewing Flash videos. It seems that I cannot tap on the full-screen icon to bring the video full screen. Every browser I tried, Dolphin HD, Dolphin for Pad and the stock browser has this issue for many Flash videos. I had to update to the latest version of Flash. I can view the videos on the page normally, but cannot maximise to full screen.

So far I'm quite happy with ICS. It runs smoother and looks more polished. There are some things I don't like though...

- Bookmarks in stock browser can't be shown in list format any more, it only allows icons.
- The fast scroller in the stock browser has gone.
- User agent string setting in stock browser has gone.
- Gallery no longer allows 'only pictures' setting.
- Gallery still ignores .nomedia files.
- I use Hackers Keyboard. The key click sound has gone.

Are you talking about the scroller on the right side of the screen?

That's strange. I still have that scroller on stock browser after ICS update.
