Cool xScope browser

thanks to Nitsu for mentioning this browser! if you have the flash.apk
for 2.1 , the Xscope browser works great!

It is fast, even on 3G. saves battery from not having to be on wifi.

works great for fake Froyo and it looks like its time to say bye-bye to Skyfire.

That is my favorite browser, but Dolphin is also good. Just prefer the UI on xscope. Skyfire I just keep around for flash.

Shouldn't everyone have the flash.apk ?

I will have to check out xScope, although Dolphin is (almost) my favorite browser right now.

Xscope lets you swipe through tabs which I love for full screen browsing (in dolphin you can use the volume buttons which isn't too bad). It caches so back/fwd is instant, no reloading. Xscope also has a badass copy/paste function. A few little things. Dolphin is good too no doubt, I could be happy with it if I had to.

This is a nice enough browser on first look for me to leave it as my default for several days at least. It may replace my old Dolphin HD.. I like the light design and the fact that it is coded by the dev from scratch.

I just downloaded the trial. It's very fast. Love it so far.

What does the full version have over the trial? I couldn't tell from the market description.

Thanks for the rec.
