    Why is it, for instance Facebook, completely different looking when using Metro/stock web browser then when using say Opera? There's a couple more sites that I can't think of off the top of my head at the moment

    I hear ya...It really isn't a bad browser for a quick page read then out. Used to delete it before but I just choose between it and Dolphin. Has to be something in the settings:thinking:
    Not a very "user friendly" browser but what do you want for stock:rolleyes:

    Yeah I actually like how it displays most pages over Opera. But I just ditched Opera and went back to Dolphin myself

    I've tried my damndest to like Dolphin but I just cant get into it. Idk why. Opera has always been my 1st but I tried Puffin tonight for the first time and Im kinda liking it.

    I'm pickier than a virgin on prom night about my browsers. :cool:

    I ditched it already ahahahaha I like. I like it alot but my phone HATES it. Ill be doing a Google search or flipping pages in Google images and it'll take up so much ram it actually freezes my phone and causes it to reboot.

    Doesn't Settings -> PC Browser mode work?

    I tried Dolphin, Opera, UC, Skyfire, xScope, Firefox, Ninesky, etc.

    All of them have some sort of bug. Also, they either fail to load Hulu, take too long to load, it gets laggy, the pinch-to-zoom doesn't work right, etc.

    I do wish it had tabbed browsing and some other features like hiding the status bar, or a smarter way to organize bookmarks, but it always works and has the least bugs, and most importantly Hulu works great (with the modded flash apk).

    Metroweb is the only browser that let's me use wifi access points that have an initial redirect to it's sign in page. After logging in I go back to dolphin HD.
