    For those who have been a little frustrated with lags in the default browser, I recommend giving Dophin browser a shot. Works great and you can set it to permanently open web pages in full site view. I think it works better in portrait view. A little slow in landscape.

    I like the default browser except for typing in here, it bugs me :) . If Dolphin is slow in Lanscape, well that doesn't help me.

    I actually had worse results with Dolphin Browser. I ended going right back to the default one.

    +1. The Default Browser is still not perfect on the pinch to xoom either. Hopefully they push a patch out soon. Looks like this is one of the trade off areas to get this thing to market before the iPad 2. I asked Dolphin HD on Twitter if they were working on the Honeycomb build and they said not at this time. Doesn't look like they are interested at the moment. I really wish they would cause I would beta test for them in a heart beat.
