    Hi I'm thinking of changing from the stock browser on my Milestone but the choice is huge - so I was wondering, what's your favourite browser app and why?

    Mine is Xscope.
    Highly customizeable. clean UI. Also the fastest, although it's been laggy for me the last few updates. Currently trying to figure out if it's my issue (too many apps) or Xscope's. Still faster than stock and Dolphin for me, though.

    I like both Dolphin and Skyfire. I probably should give Xscope a try.

    I've been very happy with Dolphin HD, but I have to admit that it was the first I tried, and I was happy enough with it that I never tried any of the competitors. I really like the use of gestures, and it seems really fast to me.

    Pretty much the same story for me. Tried Dolphin first.

    I tried Dolphin, then Skyfire and finally Dolphin HD on my Eris and I am finding HD to be SO much faster loading pages than the others.

    xScope. It's fairly minimal and fast. Excellent tab support as well.

    I don't think XScope allows you to save form information such as user names and passwords though to web sites.

    It saves my username and password in most forms on websites. Only those boxes that pop up before you can even see the webpages don't save your data (like to acces your router's webpage). Do other browsers do that?

    I just downloaded XScope, it seems to be slow in response on the MyTouch 3G. Actually I tried to hit a link several times and nothing happened.

    There's 2 versions of xScope I think, 1 for 1.6 and 1 for up. Make sure you have the right version on your phone. That said, I use the higher version number so I can't comment on the 1.6.
    This browser is definitely the fastest for me tho.

    Dolphin HD. Great UI. xScope would be my second choice.

    I normally use the stock browser unless I need to see something really quick, then I'll use opera mini.. its a great browser.

    Opera Mini 5 is the fastest one! There is a new version 5.1 due to be released today.

    That release is for Java, not for Android.

    I like Internet Explorer 8,Opera 10.60 and Firefox but they all have some problems. Not a single browser is perfect so the choice can be depend on our need. I am using Internet Explorer 8 because it supports almost sites.

    Dolphin HD after having tried most of the other heavy hitters. Opera, xScope and skyfire etc.

    I have found it to be the most stable and consistently the fastest..

    Just my 0.02

    I think my favorite one is Opera mini 5, it's so fast and very easy to use.

    Make my first post here, dunno why.
    Using Dolphin HD on a nexus one, went to Opera Mini after the default and then found Dolphin HD and love it; I don't use the gestures, but its quite fast and the setup is very nice.
