    What browser is better and offers more, xscope or skyfire. I like skyfire for its flash (that only works on few websites) but its slow browser.

    I was excited about Opera for a while, but I wasn't thrilled about the way it half @ss loaded pages and download links were difficult to open and posting on forums and facebook.

    Never liked skyfire so currently I use the paid version of xscope and I really like it.

    I also use ShapeWriter instead of Swype.

    I have to say that xScope and the stock browser are the two best imo. xScope offers the most useful features and the stock browser interfaces so well with this phone. I have tried Dolphin and Dolphin HD and thought both were too "busy" and were too slow. Skyfire was terrible except for the flash, which I don't really care about. Did not like the Opera Mini interface and pages did not seem to fit correctly when loaded.

    I am using xScope 90% of the time and the stock browser periodically for the streamlined google and google location searches.

    I like dolphin browser hd because off the themes and add on as well as gesture search for web sights and the ability to have right oases open and accessible through tabs like on internet explorer.I use swype instead of shapewriter because imo swype us more fluid and it's accuracy is amazing.

    I use xscope. I think its probably the coolest browser i've seen. I do have one question though... does xscope have an option to set as your default browser? I would like for when I hit the HTC icon for internet, that it launches xscope. Anyone know how to do that?

    I agree. I ended up going back to regular Dolphin Browser and it works fine for me.

    Personally i like xScope...the tabbed browsing is really nice and i really like the bookmarks page opening on default. Seems pretty snappy too.

    I just dled Xscope, because everyone is this thread was saying its a good browser. And i have to agree i think its alot faster then Dolphin Browser HD and i think it even looks better and has more themes.
