    Following on from this thread I thought it might be nice to start a poll to see which Browser is most popular amongst the androidforums.com community.

    xScope has become a very polished browser. When I was running android 1.5 on my Hero, xScope didn't have a version for 1.5 (they do now). I was wondering what the big deal was about xScope. Then I switched to Damage's 2.1 ROM, and I was able to use xScope. I can see why people like it so much.

    If a mod comes across this, I realised I forgot to add Steel. Could you please edit the poll?

    I have opera mini 5 on my dext but would love to have skyfire. If you have never seen skyfire its a must. plays ANY video from web pages inc BBC iplayer. I had it on my N95 and worked very well, could also play flash games online as it has built-in flash. Just waiting for its release to droid. This is it running on my N95 over the 3G network. YouTube - mobile web browser

    The program is awesome and getting even better by the day. The developer is very active and really responsive to the users comments. I am quite pleased. (To conspiracy theorists: No, I am not associated with the developer in any way, other than I use the software)

    Currently switching between Opera Mini and Dolphin. Opera for quick browsing or reading articles (quick page loads). Dolphin for image viewing.

    I hadn't heard about xscope. I'll have to check it out...

    I was one of the "stock, but haven't tried others" votes. The stock app seems to work fine for what I do.

    i tried dolphin at some point, but didn't like it, so used stock browser instead; but now that opera mini 5 beta is out, i'm using it - so much faster! :D

    Dolphin Browser all the way on my Behold 2. I like the way tabs were implemented and the gestures make so many of the common tasks a snap. I find it pretty intuitive.

    Opera mini seems too ridgid to me. Not real user friendly IMO.

    The stock browser is a complete mess as far as I'm concerned.

    Haven't tried xScope or Steel but will now.
