    Sometimes while browsing websites and especially this forum when i click on a link the broeser status bar seems to just hang riht below the X and then like 2 minutes later loads the webpage. Other times it will just crash to the homescreejn without any type of crash report. If i press stop its more prone to crash then anything else. Anyone else have this problem?

    I can't say I did but I barely used the browser until Dolphin Browser HD updated to be compatible with ICS. I'd recommend it if stock keeps giving you problems.

    My gnex started out great but started doing this exact same thing after a week.

    Yesterday I exchanged it for a new one, it works great but the Verizon rep was a real ass about the exchange.

    Hopefully this one holds up.

    I have the exact same problem. It seems as though it might be the conneection though. If I'm on 4G and it hangs, and I switch to wifi, it loads up.

    The nexus has problems with javascript. The dolphin developer opened a bug report to google, so have I and many others.

    I like the way this stock browser handles Tabs with seperate windows kinda might i say "iphonish." I used dolphin on my old phone and it was good but i again didnt like physical tabs. Ill clear my web data and also try Dolphin HD.

    Is there any type of addon for Dolphin that makes tabs like that of the stock browser?

    I'm not sure I understand what you're asking. You can set dolphin to open links in new tabs.
