    Simple question: What browser are you using right now?

    I started with the stock browser and found it to be a bit slow and lacking of features after I used other browsers. It's simplistic for new users who want to just browse the internet lightly.

    I moved on to Dolphin HD because of the good things I heard about it. I loved the gestures and the add-ons you could use but it got too slow after a few weeks of use.

    Next I tried my hands at SkyFire 3.0 with the added Facebook interface. It was an awesome browser, but it got too glitchy at times and kept force closing.

    Now, I'm using xScope and love it! It's super fast and responsive even on 3G when I never really expect it to. I also like the fact that it puts the browser in full screen mode and hides the notification bar for only when I need it.

    just started using Firefox and am very happy with it especially the syncing with the desktop version , makes it very helpful

    Dolphin HD for me.

    Not really tried any of the others apart from the stock.

    Tried Opera when I had a BB & didn't like it.

    Just downloaded Miren browser today, from using the stock HTC browser on desire hd (which I thought was fairly good) and its very very good. I love the on screen option you get to lock the orientation anytime you change to/from landscape. Its handy for when you lying in bed and dont want to change to landscape :) My only caveat is that it doesnt automatically adjust to fit the text to the screen when zoomed like the htc browser ie when im reading an article i can zoom in as much as i like and the browser will automatically fit it to the page so i dont have to scroll horizontally, just vertically. It does do it after zooming in and then tapping twice but it needs to be automatic

    I've been using the stock browser. I've also tried Dolphin and Firefox.
    Firefox was just a joke. Yes, it did run on Android but it made surfing a pain.

    Opera Mini 98% of the time. Skyfire for the 2%, when I want to watch videos.

    I've tried opera mobile, dolphin hd, and stock, but keep coming back to xscope. I'm new to opera and like the fast page loads, but xscope has the best use of screen real estate imo.

    I've been using stock since I got my EVO. I just downloaded Miren to give it a try and it's pretty slick. I may have just found my new default browser.

    I use the stock browser. It works well for any site I visit. The lack of folders for bookmarks is annoying, so I dedicate a home screen for browsing. I create home screen folders and organise my bookmarks in those folders.

    I do use Opera Mini occasionally as well as I have bookmarks from my previous phone there.
