    Why is that? I don't really know the advantages of each browser when it comes to mobile devices, so I have to ask.

    Is Opera Mini the same thing as Opera Mobile?

    No.

    Opera Mini is not a full featured browser. Having said that it's fast and useable.

    With Skyfire, anything that you can see on your computer, you can see on your cellphone. Bolt is like this as well... flash, streaming vids, tv, etc
    and it's quite fast.

    The original link has been debunked, no chance of getting Firefox in Februrary (February 2011 maybe) - Android is on Mozilla's road map, but don't expect Fennec anytime soon | Android Central

    The stock browser is Google's mobile version of Chrome, I'm pretty sure they're not going to release a competing version
    Opera Mini can run on almost any phone, it doesn't have near as many features. Opera Mobile is for smartphones
    Fennec is just the code name for Firefox Mobile

    Kind of ironic that Google's phone doesn't come with it's own Browser >.>

    I can't wait to see firefox's version or the new opera browser.

    I'm currently using Dolphin over the default for now :)

    Nope, and that's why it's definitely not going to be out in February. There isn't even an alpha version, never mind beta. Go to http://wiki.mozilla.org/Mobile/Platforms and scroll down to Firefox for Android for the little detail they've released yet. In contrast, even though Windows Mobile is still in alpha, you can download a version of that

    Who do you think wrote the default browser? Google, therefore it's pretty much chrome.

    Will firefox include its own flash plugin?
