    Mont Saint Hilaire, Qu
    I like the default webkit browser - it's fast and it plays Flash pages.
    But it crashes sometimes, and the new tab page cannot be different from the home page.

    I have briefly tried Dolphin, Xscope, Miren and Opera. They all either crashed or they don't do Flash pages.

    Have you found another browser that does everything well?

    I have been using Dolphin for a while now and prefer it over the default browser. It DOES play Flash. It also crashes on occasion, but that is usually only when I have a million tabs open. ;)

    Are those browsers the best out there?

    Is there no reason to consider Chrome and/or Firefox (the two top dogs for PC web browsers)?

    I haven't yet tried out any other browsers, but am a long time Firefox user. I don't want to waste my time on it (or Google's own Chrome) if they are too bloated to function well.

    So the stock browser on Acer Tablets is a variation of Chrome?

    I guess so, all I know though is if you log into chrome your bookmarks sync over. I only use the stock browser and have no problems at all.
