What is you're fav Web browser on the bionic and why is it your fav?
Opera Mobile, full browser, best touch settings, hardware accelerators, great for downloads.
I'm still using Dolphin HD. I'm a sucker for change so I honestly want someone to convince me not to use Dolphin anymore, but it just works so well. I mostly use it for the quick switch between full and mobile mode on websites. I even snagged xscope on the free app the day deal they had but I havn't tried it yet.
flash works with opera on your phone?
I am still with Dolphin HD. I like the immediate link home page, and the bookmarks. The left and right swipe-out menus are annoying sometimes, though.
I still use dolphin as well. I like the interface but I'm noticing that it makes my phone heat up a little.
I use opera mobile and love it. Flash works flawlessly as well on my phone and tablet
Dolphin HD rawks!
Dolphin for me too, I have used Opera in other phones I had and never liked it so I wont even try it here.
perfectly, can set it to for no flash, all flash or click to interact.
not to mention, all other browsers with the exception of firefox/opera are nothing more than skinned stock browsers using webkit.
you can also sync FF and opera to their desktop versions as well.
FF still has no flash support, otherwise I would use it.
Can the OP add a poll?
Honestly, I just use the stock browser. I've tried DHD, but usually end up going back to stock. Maybe I'll give them another chance.
Besides the tabs (GOTS to have my TABS!!!), the gesture feature of Dolphin is nothing short of awesome. You can create your own gestures and then use them to add bookmarks, open tabs, close tabs, etc., etc... LOVE that feature. It takes a minute to learn how to use. But once you do, you simply can't live without it.
I ran the Sunspider test on the Bionic on four different browsers and here are the results:
Sunspider Test(lower is better)
Stock Browser 3873.8ms
Dolphin HD 3743.0ms
Opera Mobile(not Opera Mini) 2124.2ms
I just tried skyfire, but it would fc when I watch video heavy sites. Had to uninstall!
I'll add my vote as being another Dolphin HD fanboy.
There's a slight learning curve, but I've tried others and Dolphin is the best going right now.
Dolphin HD. It seems a little slower than the stock browser but the desktop mode is awesome and makes up for it. Tried opera and didnt care for it.
I've been using stock, Opera, Skyfire, and xScope to see what performs the best on the Bionic. So far, I'd say they're all about equal in terms of speed. I haven't put Dolphin HD on cause I've never figured out how to turn off the side bar that pops up every time I scroll down a page. lol
Have not seen this mentioned yet but I have been sticking with Miren. I tried it towards the end on my X and loved it. It is fast, pulls up desktop sites (not mobile) if you update the settings, plays flash content great and has the tabs and use to use interface. I have not tried anything since I went to this because it works perfect for me.
I'm staying with xScope. It has issues but seems to run better on these new phones with adequate memory.
I love Opera. It is the best combination of smooth scrolling and fast page loading on my phone. I have DHD as well and while the tabs are nice, I don't find myself using the gestures or slide menus too much.
