Default Stock Email And Browser

my phone should be coming in tomorrow

ive had the motorola droid series of phones since the star 1,2,and currenly 3 with this phone i got lazy with new apps and really trying out much

but with my dna i intend to really get back into it and use it for all its worth

so my first 2 questions about apps would be how is the stock email and stock browser

currently i use k-9 email and dolphin hd browser

should i stick with stock on dna for both of these if not what do you recommend as an email and browser client if not k-9,dolphin or stock

I'm absolutely loving the stock browser. The text wrapping works great and I like how when you click on a link or do something that causes a new tab to open up, the animation makes it clear that's what just happened. And the number of tabs open is shown between the address bar and settings "dots", but all disappear when you scroll down a web page. I really, really like this browser.

Note, go into the dots/settings and then advanced settings and set Default Zoom to "Close" if you want text to be automatically bigger on sites like CNN etc.

I'm definitely interested to hear what people have to say about other browsers, I haven't even tried them when I saw how well the text wrapping worked on the stock browser. When I played with other phones at Verizon none the stock browsers I tried had text wrapping as I recall.

Wow, you could have written my post for me ! This is precisely how I feel about the browser. I have used Chrome for a long time, until the DNA. I am very very satisfied with the stock browser overall.

For the OP ... There is only 1 little niggle I have with the stock browser, and it is a very small issue. It is in regard to how the stock browser shares a web page to e-mail. If you tend to e-mail links to web pages a lot(I send them to myself sometimes), you may notice this, if not then it is not an issue. If I am on a web page and share to e-mail(or Gmail), the TITLE of the web page ends up in the body of the e-mail along with the URL, and the Subject line in the e-mail client is left blank. Usually browsers read the meta-data on a site and list the title of the page in the SUBJECT of the email when you share it, and list the URL of the site in the body of the e-mail. For example, if I wanted to share a story about the end of the world today and I hit "share" in the browser, "Today is the end of the world!" would appear in the BODY of the e-mail instead of in the Subject. Again this issue is so small, I hesitate to even mention it. I happen to share sites often, so I happen to notice this.

I used to use Kaiten too on previous phones, but I am also quite happy with the stock e-mail client. No issues at all for me with the e-mail client.

Email and the browser are pretty much the only things I haven't replaced with something else. I'd say both get the job done well enough.
