    Hey all.
    So my ginger bread browser had been acting a little off recently. Their seems to be checker board everywhere. Before it would load the full page our at least a screens worth and when I zoomed it would stretch the image and then up sample/refresh the image.now whenever I interact with the browser screen directly in anyway, there will be checkerboard everywhere until I stop touching it. Can't zoom in our out on stuff properly anymore or even scroll a page properly.
    Anyone else experience this?

    I had this pretty frequently on websites, but wasn't sure what it was, so no help from me :(

    Yup I get this also especially when scrolling through a website quickly or pinch zooming into a page although I don't get it all the time like you seem to be having. Have you considered using another browser from the market? You are spoilt for choice - Opera, Dolphin, Mirren are all good alternatives I like Opera it seems fast at loading pages than the others but it

    yes! i get it too.. sometimes. it happens when the page has not fully loaded.. especially on 3g when it takes a bit longer to load, and i try to interact, i get it. it makes the browser pretty unusable to be honest. if it loads fast, on wifi for example, i dont get the problem. i know there's a big choice for browsers, but to be honest i like the simplicity of the other browsers.. i dont need that many features so i find the other browsers a but cluttered

    It's only on mine when page is loading, but i've tried all the browsers and stock is by far the fastest and the best.

    It's just a background placeholder wallpaper until it loads.
