    Anybody have any suggestions on a better browser than the stock TF one? Some web sites comes up okay but others not so much so. Comcast is one that does not work so well. I get a lot of flashing and can't get it to let me select some of my e-mail.

    Right now I am testing out Dolphin HD browser. So far the lag with typing is minimal to nearly perfect and things load up better and faster. I haven't gotten a dock update for this so I am waiting to decide which will be my permanant browser if that ever happens. For now i like it so far.

    I did try out Opera mini and mobile. I very much disliked both.

    I just started trying dolphin. Have you found a way to only go to regular sites vs mobile?

    Never mind. I found the setting. However, I now see that it did not solve my problem with going to the comcast web site.

    Under "Settings" then "Dolphin Settings" change "User Agent" from "Android" to "Desktop"

    I am liking the gestures for web pages too as well as the left/right gestures to bring out more options

    none of them are perfect. but I like opera mini the best. I really love when you go back the page is already preloaded. it seems unstable though. a few times when I loaded it all I get is a black screen

    SkyFire is worth a try as well, havent used it yet on my Transformer, but it was great on my Archos 101 tablet.

    I tried Opera Mini but I could not find a way to get it to load Facebook as the full page and not mobile. I looked all over and couldn't find how to change it. do you know where that setting is?

    Still on Dolphin and liking it better. Nearly no lag in typing on this forum. Small lag on another though.

    I'll check out Skyfire next.
