Post Best browser

Many people (like me) have been trying to find out what is the best browser on our LG Esteem.

I'm undecided, so make your vote to help me out as well as others. Thank you, advanced thanks to all

OK. I'm going to be Frank. The best two browser are Dolphin HD and Opera Mobile.

Dolphin HD = for HD content and features
Opera Mobile = For speed and quick rendering .

P.S thanks for the move!

Once we get a working ICS ROM the built in version of Chrome will be my browser of choice. You can have it sync with your desktop, laptop, tablet and phone. I'm already loving having the same bookmarks, history and setting between my ICS tablet, laptop and desktop.

Opera Mobile for me. It does animation and formats text better than any other browser I've used.

Will have to take a look at Puffin, FireFox Mobile may be feature packed with many add-ons and even pretty fast when it comes to browsing sites but it isn't as easy to change from Desktop -> Mobile. The UI isn't as fast and simple as Dolphin for me so I had to switch back.

I am using the free version, the app description said that it is even faster than the Paid version so I figured that I would stick with this one LoL

" Puffin Free, a newer and faster version of the Puffin Web Browser, is available for free."

Uhm. If we could have something as simple as opera, as stylish and featured as well as HD capable as dolphin, as light and fast as puffin, and as stock as chrome, please let me know.

I think your best bet is to try them all and decide which one is best for you. I know thats what I did and it helped me in choosing which browser(s) I prefer.

Dolphin for "desktop" viewing and surfing

Firefox for mobile and quick viewing pages

Hope that helps just play around you'll find the apps and tools that are right for you

Hmmm. Looking into that right now.


Dolphin is meh. Opera is the best IMO. Displays text boxes correctly as the rest do not. It's fast and easy to navigate with the home menu.

I'm pretty impressed by Puffin. It's pretty fast but the differences in the quality of flash applications bugs me and I visit a lot of sites that require flash (hulu.com, nba.com, nfl.com mainly). Also, I wasn't able to hit the "full screen" option at nba.com.

I guess I'll have to use the stock browser for sites that need flash and Puffin for regular sites. Nothing seems to beat the stock browser for flash.

Puffin is quite faster than most. But true, a lot of bugs.

I tried them all and none of them really seemed much better then the stock browser. The only thing that bugs me about the stock browser is that sometimes it is slow, but when I used the ones mentioned here, none of them seemed any faster to load pages, and if they were faster the UI wasn't great.

Yeah I like the stock too(use them.both) They really did a number on the Dolphin one-more of a phone based browser now instead of trying to emulate an internet browser.

I love Dolphin. Don't use sonar much but the gestures feature blew my mind. Not really much of a difference from the stock browser in terms of speed but this is definitely the #1 browser for my needs.

I tried several on my stratosphere and I've been with Boat Browser Mini since I installed it. It may not have all the fancy customizations that some other browsers have but it's fast and efficient which is what I want my internet to be. I have lots of other things/apps that I can spend an excessive amount of time customizing and making pretty.

And I love the little popup that you get when you start to play a news video or something similar and asks if you want to play it or download it.

I also think they they are all very phone/set up specific so what performs well on my phone may be crap on yours. Just my thoughts.

Hope it helps.
