    I switched to xScope a few days ago ... it's not quite perfect, but overall I"m pretty impressed.

    Not wanting to be an evangelist, here ... but you guys should check out the one-figure zoom gestures that xScope offers. Pretty cool!

    that pin zoom on xscope is rather nifty i agree. not good enough for me to switch from dolphin, but that was pretty cool

    I like the speed and UI of Xscope. Mostly use that, sometimes still use the native browser.

    I still use the stock browser too. I like having flash in the browser and I don't think any of the others do that. I visit quite a few flash heavy sites on my phone.

    for one im not you am i, so u can only speak for yourself, since there are millions of other people like me who like pinch and zoom what makes you think your reason for not liking it is more justified

    I use Dolphin.
    Tried xScope but wasn't really impressed.
    Stock keeps crashing.
    I may try Opera this afternoon if I get bored at work. :)

    Right now I'm using Dolphin (except when I want Flash, in which case I switch to the stock browser). It sounds like I should try out xScope and Opera Mini too.

    My big requirements are:
    1. tabs
    2. being able to exit
    3. importing or syncing my Google bookmarks

    xscope ....... was never really all that happy with Dolphin..... but that is the awesome thing about android, they give you many options....since not everyone will like the same thing

    I also like Opera if there was just some way to make it the default browser....
