    Hello all,

    I've noticed that the JB upgrade has new stock browser. It appears to work well. I've used Chrome prior but is there really a need now with the new stock browser??

    If you aren't using the stock browser which one do you use?

    Is flash compatibility affected? It seems like it would be rather messed up to suddenly remove a feature through an update that was already preinstalled from the factory and was already working fine on 4.0.

    I use Xscope as I find it has the best default view for forums

    If you use chrome on desktop, it makes sense on android more. I always have flash installed and the stock browser if needs be, but haven't needed to yet

    Once you go Chrome, you won't go back.

    I did. At least on the desktop. Until Chrome can allow me to control tabs the way I like - it is a non-starter. It is Firefox+TabMixPlus for me.

    And I've been meaning to try Chrome on my phone but honestly Firefox works well enough there too.
