    Does anyone else have a better browser for viewing the full facebook website? The stock browser runs it pretty poorly and I can't even get on the full site with the Opera browser. Specifically, I just want to be able to chat efficiently and the compatibility of facebook with Android in my experience (Droid x and now the transformer) has been very poor and I was expecting it to be pc-like on a tablet but facebook seems tone very anti-touch screen.

    I have been using Facebook on the stock browser (not the mobile version either) and so far it runs the same as it does on my alienware laptop. It loads fine for me and I appreciate it more than I did the facebook app which i finally removed. What specific issue are you having?

    My only complaint with the site is the stupid chat windows popping up automatically. I hate the chat on FB and wish I could completely disable it. But that is a gripe with their site, not how my TF handles it.

    I find the TF handles every element happily OTHER than Chat... This really badly implemented part of the site really doesn't display well on Transformer, iPad or any mobile webkit browser i've seen it on...Rumours have been going around for a while that FB are working on a tablet specific version of the mobile site as well as a tablet optimised app for Honeycomb / iPad.

    The issue mainly ccomes from the facebook cchat and picture viewing. Refreshing the page fixes the picture vviewer but chat is abysmal

    Ok what am I doing wrong? I m unable to load most of my facebook games. I'm running the latest of flash and honeycomb, I just got this last week and been playing with it ever since. I set the privacy setting to allow for mock locations. I am running opera browser because trying to install firefox is annoying and I dont know which version of chrome to install.
    I have the browser settings to read as a desktop and the animation to on demand. When I click my game I get a big round circle with the play button. I have the game loading it will start to play then give me the
    lovely exclamation point icon. And how do I grant,myself administration privileges and uninstall some programs? Do I really need three different book readers? thank you. any chance of getting Java soon so I can play pogo? I know its installed and enabled but I cant play pogo? I got a sdcard to use for more memory but can't sync it. I'm sorry if I'm asking questions that have already been answered but I've been researching, installing and uninstalling and I just want to play :) . I have always used windows but didn't think that you would need all these apps to run an android.

    thank you

    Format the SDcard on the transformer then it should be fine..

    Many parts of websites are built for specific browsers, some parts won't work on the Android browser..

    Maybe you can! Try this link: http://www.facebook.com/?m2w

    The "?m2w" at the end is the important part ...
