    There are a couple popular choices out there but which do you have set as your default web browser?

    I have all these installed but currently have stock "Internet" as my default.

    UPDATE: a few write-in votes have been cast for "xscope"

    I use Skyfire but I have been having issues closing tabs (or panels whatever they're called on mobile). It crashes every time.

    I think xscope should have been included on there.

    I installed Dolphin so I could sync my bookmarks with my gmail account but find I can not see embedded youtube videos on blogs, etc. Is there a way around this? I may go back to the stock browser. I otherwise really like Dolphin.

    I use opera, dolphin, and stock. I like opera, from previous blackberry, but no multi touch in opera for inc. Dolphin works pretty good just getting used to it. Dolphin and opera both seem to be a little quicker then the stock browser for me.

    Stock browser here. Haven't tried any of the other ones, though I always used Opera Mobile (not Mini) on my WinMo phones. The stock browser is sooo nice... in particular, the way it reflows text when you zoom in. Opera didn't do that.

    I'm using the stock browser as of know, but have been really interested in the other ones (due to my love of tabbed browsing). I tried the Skyfire 2.0 beta, but it seemed to be really jumpy. When I would load pages they would kind of flash in and out to my home screen (were talking like flash of a half a second or something), so I just went back to the standard one.

    I am using the stock one too. Seems to do everything I need it to. Worlds better than Opera was on my BB.

    stock for me. Love how the top tool bar disappears so quickly and the way text changes as you zoom in. Dolphin and Skyfire just seemed to cluttered and "rough" feeling

    I use the stock internet browser. I tried Skyfire, but there were just too many bugs for me. The stock one is simple, does everything I need it to, and doesn't have any problems.

    I have been using Skyfire ever since it came out. Works great.

    I'm using the stock browser also, but waiting for Google to release the Android version of Chrome. I can't believe they haven't already! :confused:

    I'm using xScope. Between that, stock and Skyfire, it's the one that worked the best for one of the pages I need to access for work. It's a pretty good browser in its own right, although to be honest if I didn't need it for work I'd probably have just stuck with the stock one.

    Running stock unless I specifically want to watch a flash vid - then it's off to Skyfire.
