    Since I got my motion 4g all I've been using is chrome. I was actually excited when I got this phone because I would finally be able to use chrome. But, the lack of flash player support kinda sucks.

    I used to use dolphin browser, when I had my galaxy indulge 4g. That was a while ago.

    So post what you think is best and why. Thanks

    Google Chome. I don't miss flash at all, which I never though I would say.

    I love the bookmark syncing and the open page syncing. Everything is quick and smooth.

    But I figured if I found an app with the sync capabilities and flash, it would be best

    +1 for boat browser. Personally, I think dropping support for flash is a big mistake. Boat browser does flash, and html5 very well.

    Same here, except the reason I've not used Chrome is simple: Gingerbread ;)

    Boat is a fine browser imo.

    Chrome here too. Bit slow to start up but for me its the bookmark syncing. Makes my phone an extension of my desktop for surfing

    Aside from bookmarks, I don't get the attraction to Chrome. Maybe it's better on a tablet, don't know. I far prefer Boat.

    Best being subjective and all.. I prefer a combination of Dolphin and Chrome.

    Firefox has been my default browser for a long time. Very fast, nice UI, useful extensions, syncing, flash + HTML5, etc. Nothing I've seen in other browsers has given me any reason to change.

    One more vote for Boat Browser. Pretty much tried 'em all, and that's the one I've stuck with.

    Nope, the only reason it's installed on any of my devices is the bookmark/desktop sync.

    Boat all the way for me although I keep meaning to give xScope a try, it's meant to be very good.

    XScope is very good, I use that from time to time as well.

    Yep. pretty much tried 'em all.

    Am I the only one who uses the Maxthon browser? Maxthon is suspiciously similar to Boat but has a better Quick/Home favorites screen and a better "star" bookmark/share button.
