    First off, what is the fastest mobile browser that I can get for my Droid X? It's only 3G. I will be upgrading to the Razr in the near future, but for now I'd like to find the best. I am currently using Opera Mini. I tried Skyfire a few days ago and it was very slow.

    Question 2: I keep getting a notification, with a green star icon, that says upgrade the android market. I am afraid to open the link. Has anyone else seen/heard of this?

    1. Download the Forums for Android™ app!

    1 - In my experience, Opera mini is pretty fast, but there are other good ones too. Some do some things well but may not have some features you want. It's probably best for you to try a few out and see which is best for you.

    Some others you may want to try are:
    Dolphin & Dolphin mini
    Boat & Boat mini

    2- Sounds like you've downloaded an app that uses "Push Notifications", such as Airpush, Leadbolt etc. See this thread for more info:

    I only care about speed to be honest. Thanks for the tips!

    Here is all I have downloaded:

    WebMD(No clue why, just bored I guess)
    Funny Jokes
    Advanced Task Killer
    Music Junk
    Opera Mini
    Pizza Hut
    Papa Johns
    Verizon V Cast tones
    Mobile Recovery(Verizon)
    Mr. Number Call Block
    Hulu Plus

    Why I made this list, I do not know. It's not like I am expecting an answer as to which app it might be. I just started typing. Silly brain of mine. Lol

    Uninstall the task killer. Totality uneeded and counter-productive.

    Install Air Push Detector. It will tell you which is the offending app.

    right off the bat I can tell you that Music Junk uses AirPush........ and will give you the green star that suggests a 'market update' but actually sends you to an online ad site

    not sure about the rest on your list but I know that one first hand :)

    For pure speed, I found Opera & Ninesky to be fastest for me. Of course YMMV.

    Download addonsdetector and/or airpushdetector to help you identify which app is pushing these ads to you.

    Try Mirin browser too. I've used it happily for a while, but now I'm on Maxthon Mobile & ready liking it :)

    The advantage to Opera is that they compress images on their servers before it hits your device, do you trade off image clarity (or disable them altogether) in order to get text delivered faster.
