I like skyfire only for viewing webpages fully, but other then that I feel Opera is better/faster. Skyfire on wm used to run webpages exactly like how they run on the computers(videos ect) but it doesn't on android. It kind of defeats the purpose of having it IMO.

Well, that's Opera Mobile vs Opera Mini for ya...

And yes, I think Skyfire WILL be a better browser... Eventually.

Opera takes few secs to load every time you start it,feels like im on Symbian,that renders it useless for me,other than that it is the fastest.

I dont like either choice, waiting for Pocketfox to be released, am using dolphin, seems pretty fast. With Skyfire, it saves images on your sd card, which I didnt like, I did not care for Opera on pc and found the same opinion on the mobile version.

Dolphin is faster than stock and lets you download any files.In some ways its better than Skyfire because Skyfire uses Stock Browser's frameworks but Dolphin is built from ground up.Dolphin loads pages faster,but Skyfire have smoother pages browsing.Steel browser is nice too.For me its between Skyfire and Dolphin-cant decide.XScope is not bad but needs a better interface.

i'm a fan of opera mini, but i also have been using it for about a year now, previously on my samsung t919 (behold 1) and now my behold II. i guess it's all about personal preference tho.
