    Smooth as butter, but I do miss the "Request Desktop Site" option.

    I like it too, but I'm sticking with "ICS Browser +" for now.

    It's very fast and benchmarks better than ICS Browser+. It definitely needs flash, ability to switch user agent, and some sort of caching feature so tabs don't have to reload every time you switch between them.
    It's my primary browser now.

    To date, this Chrome browser is the only broswer that has been able to render certain websites properly for me, that enables me to input into all text fields.

    So far dolphin hd seems to load webpages faster for me. But I do like the chrome beta, can't wait to test it out in final form.

    It's pretty good, though still has some bugs. It renders pages weird as you're scolling around, hiccups as you're scrolling, animations with tabs are sometime laggy and jittery, etc.

    loving Chrome Beta so far, nice and fast!
    I do miss Flash from time to time so I have yet to pick Chrome as the default browser but I'm pretty sure it's won me over at this point

    Isnt there a way around it not having flash... You would think Google being the evil corporation that it is they would be able to come up with something

    flash appears to be a dying breed anyways.
    Adobe said last year they were done developing for the mobile platform so it's only a matter of time till it's all html5

    I like the labs stuff in the stock browser. I like being able to slide my thumb in and having access to those menus rather than having the url bar present. Also, The Chrome browser seems "clunky" to me. Not sure if that makes sense. Whereas the stock browser looks smooth and just "fits", Chrome along with it's tabs are not as aesthetically pleasing to me.

    Downloaded it last week, deleted it 2 or 3 days later. Kept crashing and gave me 3 reboots in a row so I decided to stick with stock for now. Probably because I'm running AOKP M3 but whatever, it just wasn't working for me.

    that's odd hlsilver, it might have something to do with your rom because on my rooted / stock 4.02 it's running flawlessly.
