    Whats the best browser to date available in the Android market or for the Incredible? Ive come to think Dolphin HD is but plenty of the others work great. What is the fastest and most reliable/easy to use?

    I still rock the stock browser, and haven't had any problems with it yet.

    I use Dolphin. I'd say it boils down to personal reference and what you're used to.

    I had been using Dolphin HD but just started using the Skyfire before the Facebook update. It seems a little faster.

    Stock browser and I use the "fake chrome" icon. Looks much nicer than the globe icon, IMO

    Still? I dropped the icon when the app creator decided they needed to redirect your homepage to their website....

    That's below malware crap IMO.

    considering the "app"(i.e. a shortcut) took probably 20 minutes to create...

    You guys have got to try Miren. Been using it for the last couple of days and have now made it my default.

    Anyone tried Galapagos? It seemed really fast.

    As for Skyfire users. When you pinch to zoom (expand the page) does it reformat properly? Since 2.2 I have had to pinch to zoom as step one, then double tap to get the page to reformat to screen width.

    Any suggestions would be helpful. I am currently using Dolphin but not married to it.

    Been using Dolphin since the beginning, but I think I now have a new favorite browser. Thanks a ton, Rechard!

    Have been using the stock browser...

    I read a while back that it was the fastest performing browser with 2.2

    I don't believe Miren or xScope were included in that benchmark test though.

    I'm going to give them a try...

    Sorry I just tried miren and I still think Dolphin is better. Try copying text on a page.

    That's the only thing that bugged me, but after a few times, it's not that bad.

    I see what you're talking about, but I personally don't copy things from the browser often, so it's not a big deal for me.

    Im curious about Miren, but was using Dolphin HD. Something about it bugged me, and when I went back to the stock browser, I was very impressed with it's speed.
