Default Chrome browser or Stock Browser?

I want to know people's opinion on whether the chrome browser is better than the stock browser or not. I've noticed some sites fits the page better on the stock browser vs chrome. But is there a performance different between the two in ICS? And I do not like dolphin fyi lol.

Chrome is my default browser. It doesn't support flash though which is an issue for some.

Been pretty happy with Chrome since the update. Haven't even bothered with the stock browser once.

I've tried Chrome some on my tablet, but Dolphin is still my browser of choice. I need to give Chrome another try sometime soon (I do use Chrome on my PC).

Tried Chrome, but was a little sloppy to me. Dolphin is clean, logical, and has main page bookmarks.

I still have both Dolphin and Xscope installed on my phone, but I use Chrome as my everyday go to. I also favor it on my laptop, and I'm a little disappointed the mobile version isn't as intuitive to use, but it's been pretty good so far. I must admit that I don't do a lot of browsing on my phone, so I probably haven't really put it through its paces yet. I do miss the bookmarks page from Dolphin, though.

Chrome is great I like it so much that i disabled the stock browser and have it set as the default browser, but I think part of why I like it so much is because I had been using it on my computer for a year or more.

I tried Chrome and it was smooth, but I did not really like the interface. I had been using Boat , but now back on Dolphin HD.
