    Stock. To me it's just simple and I like the bookmarks and easy history cleaning.

    I used Skyfire for a bit... but didn't really reap any benefits with my browsing habits so I went back to stock :)

    I have been using Opera as I had found the stock app on 1.6 a bit slow and have just continued to do so with 2.1 out of habit.

    This and that.

    Stock here too. I've tried Opera, Skyfire and Firefox but find the stock app simpler. I will be switching though to Firefox when it's out of beta stage, it just lags too much at the moment for me.

    I have tried them all and I like Xscope the best. Nice and clean, find it faster than others, it saves pages so back and forward is instant, swipe across the screen to switch between tabs. The only browser I like better is stock 2.2.(crosses fingers)

    Stock

    found OPERA didn't format pages correctly, looked iffy, seen a few others recommended but never tried them

    only thing missing from stock is an "EXIT" option

    I ask because I've heard good things of the Opera browser and was thinking of installing, but after reading this I guess I'll stick to the stock one. Thanks all.
