    I use the stock browser, but maybe try the Firefox alpha browser, available in the Market?

    I don't have Charge. But I tried many android browsers and think Dolphin HD, Xscope are two best ones. Dolphin has best UI and many settings for tweaking, Xscope is probably the speed king with simple, easy UI in my opinion. Skyfire, Firefox were quite buggy and lagging at times, maybe latest version could be better though. Anyhow I think Samsung needs to push firmware update to fix the stock browser lag sooner than later.

    I really love Dolphin Browser. I've been using it on my Droid 1 for a long time.

    I've used Dophin HD since I got my Incredible, but now I'm using the new dolphin browser I read about on droid-life.

    Does Dophin HD allow you to speak the address or search areas like the stock browser does?

    sean76, let us know if a particular browser makes a drastic difference. The browser lag is pretty much the prime reason I have not bought the Charge as of yet. I am hoping the LG Revolution delivers or I might just cut out the 4G and settle with the Droid X2. Much appreciated!

    To brackket and sintec yes it settles the lag issue 100% you cant even tell theres a lag issue and IMO XScope is the best way to go..its faster than dolphin hd and simpler to understand. Hope that helps
