    Hey all,

    I have been using the Dolphin HD browser on my Sprint Samsung Epic 4G - and love it. It's the best browser I have ever used (even better than my previous favorite, Opera).

    On the PC, I am a fan of Firefox - so I downloaded the FireFox Android Beta (HERE). I know it's in the beta stages, but I figured I would mentioned that I still like the layout of Dolphin HD better. I am surprised, however, at how similar they are laid out!

    We'll see how things progress....

    Is the Firefox browser still laggy as hell and take up a huge amount of space?

    It wasn't as smooth as DHD, and the install file alone was 11mb - LOL.

    I can't wait to see how it all works out....

    I have been trying to run Fennec on my D1 for a week now as I like Firefox on my desktop and SO want my PC and phone to link bookmarks, etc. It is laggy as hell, hangs up, and FCs a lot. I went back to stock browser for most searches.

  7. Firefox on the Desktop and DolphinHD on Android,
    did you try "Firefox Sync for DolphinHD"?

    I still use the stock browser. I have Firefox Beta 2 installed and like where it's heading but it's got too many quirks still to use it as my primary browser. Could never get into Dolphin... its UI and I just don't get along. I keep it installed though since it allows you to spoof the User Agent which allows me to authenticate on some portals that don't properly recognize the Captivate... such as Barnes & Noble wifi hotspots (which are AT&T, ironically).
