    Hey check out the thread in my sig.

    The best alternatives are Steel and Dolphin. Both have their advantages.

    Steel is light and zippy - i personally use this one
    Dolphin is like a mini firefox. It has tabs, pinch zoom, and a good bookmarks utility, but its heavier than steel

    I'd recommend you download both of these and see which one you prefer.

    (mini tip, long press on link to open that link in new window/tab)

    I've tried dolphin a few time but seems so slow loading up my bookmarks that I've gone back to my default browser.

    There was an update the other day, have you tried it now?
    The tab browsing is something I really wanted which is why I love dolphin. Can't wait til fennec though!

    Have you tried Steel? Its basically the default browser on steroids. Faster, more complete and real quick access to mostly used features.
