    Hey Everyone,

    Which Browser do you think is the best with Froyo on Droid?

    Me personally it would have to be between default and Opera because speed is important to me.

    I'm using Dolphin, but I haven't really browsed the web much yet after the update so I can't really comment on speed. From what I have seen from the little bit I have done is that it's just as fast as it was on 2.1

    there is a speed increase with 2.2 on the default browser....but i think that speed increase gets "nullified" with FLASH since it takes time to load all that stuff. i actually dotn think FLASH is that useful to me until i can get HULU working on my device. (i did the about:debug thing)

    just select the option for flash on demand. That way you can use it when you want.

    I like Dolphin HD. I love the fact that when you have a non-mobile friendly page loaded that you can click on a column of text in the web page and it pulls that text to the width of the screen. The function alone is worth using Dolphin HD. I also like the tabbed browsing and the gestures for commonly used features.

    skyfire. Skyfire. Ultimately the best for flash and speed.

    In my experience skyfire is by far the worst browser in speed and functionality.

    I've always liked the stock browser, and even moreso with 2.2. Dolphin has nice features and all, but I prefer the cleanliness of stock.

    Going to have to go with xscope as well, tons of themes, very fast, everything loads correctly, pinch to zoom. Nothing really that I don't like about this browser, opera would be my second choice.

    How do you select flash on demand with the stock browser. Also can you pick desktop mode

    I liked the build of Skyfire but it's a slug on 2.2. Back to default now..it's super fast.

    Dolphin HD for me. I love the UI compared to xscope and I think its as fast as the stock browser plus u can move the browser cache to the sd by default.

    I'm pretty sure Flash runs on all the browsers mentioned in this thread.
    But, I am gonna have to give XScope and Opera a try! I've been using Dolphin since the first day I got my droid, never tried another browser except stock.

    Go into settings and then enable plug ins.

    Flash does not work in Opera. It is an interesting browser, but is not a full webkit browser.

    I won't know until I get OTA Update 2. From what I have heard from Rooted Users Update 2 is supposed to be much faster than Update 1!
