    Just wondering if now that we have full flash, if there is a "best browser to use" I have been using skyfire and it seems slow and choppy and sometimes things dont even load. Is there a better browser or any other advice you could give me? Thanks a bunch. I apologize if this has already been covered.

    Skyfire is not like a traditional browser.

    Skyfire uses FireFox on skyfires servers to render images ( that look like webpages) to send to your phone, therefore you cannot update flash or anything else when using Skyfire. You would have to update flash on the Skyfire servers.

    Updating flash on your phone would update it for the stock browser.

    Just checked stock browser and its so much better than the skyfire. I have skyfire as default. Anyone know how to switch to the stock browser as default? Cant see to find a make default browser setting anywhere.


    Thank for the info sbmhome, might uninstall skyfire.

    Can anyone get videos in ESPN to play? In the stock browser it looks like Flash is going to play the videos, but then I get a tiny blue question mark and the video placeholder is just an image.

    I'm using the update Flash 10.1 player referenced above.

    Haha, well thanks for checking. ESPN must have changed something on their because my coworker pulled up ESPN on his Incredible two days ago and it played fine.
