    One of the most annoying things for me so far is having to pan left and right to read all the text after I zoom in. Is it the browser or is it a phone setting I've tried to stock I've tried the dolphin hd and both of them to not on the rap text for you. Let me know if you find some that works.

    Thank you

    its strange as Dolphin use to wrap the text on my HTC Desire handset, so cant see why it doesnt handle the SG3. I've heard that Chrome does handle this so may be worth trying.

    I really miss the text reflow from my Incredible too, but found a work-around that's working pretty good for me, at least for the sites I use most often. I played around with the text size and default zoom when you double tap. Not sure exactly which setting changed what, but I found a good mix so that when I double tap, it zooms to just the right level and fits the text.

    In the stock browser, menu/settings/accessibility
    check Force Zoom
    scale text is set to 100%
    zoom amount on double tap set to 115%
    Minimum font size set to 17pt

    In Settings/Advanced
    Default Zoom set to medium
    auto-fit pages is checked

    Just play with the sliders until you get something you like.

    That's why I use it. I can't use any other browser than Opera.

    I posted this on another thread last night which is the solution for the word wrap issue:

    1) open the browser
    2) touch the left menu button at the bottom of the phone and scroll to the Settings option (its the last item at the bottom of the menu)
    3) select Advanced
    4) Check the "Auto fit pages" option

    When viewing a page you can then pinch and stretch the screen to resize the font size, then double tap the screen to get the text to wrap at the correct size.

    New JB 4.1.2 doesn't have the advanced button in the settings menu and can't word wrap at all, what to do without changing the stock browser.

    Boat browser has been recommended in so many postings. Do a search for text reflow.
