    I'd like to know this as well. Specifically what all the differences are between the most popular android browsers such as flash compatibility, speed, and plugin support.

    So far I've been using Dolphin HD for everything.

    BUT, Skyfire will load and play alot of flash video that Dolphin doesn't. Skyfire is slower though.

    A general rant for all the browsers I've found - the volume rocker acts as page up and page down, instead of controlling the damn volume. Nearly woke the dead one night when I was watching a video online and I couldn't figure out how to change it lol.

    I'm curious as to what advantages these browsers have over the stock one.

    Anybody willing to fill me in?

    The big thing they all have is a way to use tabbed browsing, instead of the clunky "windows" that the stock does. xScope at least has a really cool and fluid interface and offers tons of options.

    Edit: Dolphin "looks" the prettiest with their tabs and UI. I think xScope offers the most functionality.

    I like Dolphin HD. It sort of reminds me of chrome the way the tabs are set up. Not too good with the gestures yet though.

    This is an option (that can be disabled), at least in the Dolphin browser (which is my preferred browser).
