    I was wondering what browser you guys use and why. Originally I used maxthon, in a performance guy and decided to put it up against a couple others. I tested maxthon vs Firefox beta vs puffin. Maxthon came in last being the slowest, Firefox showed great improvement and I absolutely love the GUI but wish they made lightweight versions with no plugin feature or anything like that, and then puffin, wow oh wow, this browser is snappy. I stuck with puffin but am considering playing with Firefox again because I hate the gui of puffin, especially how it handles tabs.

    I used to use chrome and loved it, that is until it caused my phone to freeze and reboot often. I now believe it was a memory allocation issue. I had some apps installed that had problems with being memory hogs. I hope that if I install it again, the Same problem doesn't happen.

    I loved chrome when I had less apps and had more memory to use, for such a slim browser it uses too much memory, I like how clean of a browser it is, but its poor performance forced me to move on to Firefox, hopefully my experience is different on cm10.

    Next Browser FTW! I love it. And to have the main start links as a widget with a flip ticker. ;)

    I use the stock Android browser. I was all about Dolphin, but the stock browser works great, renders everything nicely, it's fast and has none of the dolphin bloat.

    I use Chrome & InBrowser, have never had a hiccup with either (I don't condsider Chromes ability to be a memory hog a hiccup persay).

    I use Opera for browsing most of the time, as it saves 81% of my data with off-road mode - this is for speed and reliability more than caring about any limit of my unlimited plan. I use Chrome as my secondary browser. And I use Lastpass for anything that requires a login; I installed it and the Firefox plugin but the Lastpass app works more smoothly for me.

    I used to use stock browser all the time unless I needed flash, then I used dolphin.

    Then I tried chrome and used it for awhile. But I tried Firefox mobile when it came out and haven't looked back since.

    Mainly BC I use a lot of the same add ons on mobile as I do on desktop (such as adblock plus).

    Just my .02 USD

    I had Firefox for the longest because I love its interface. Great with bookmarks and sync. I would switch between it and my stock browser- Chrome. I got rid of Firefox because of the bloat/memory it used up. Other than that it was my dream browser. Still use it on my laptop. Now back to just Chrome although I did enjoy Atlas Web browser but it kept crashing. You can't beat chrome with its fast page loading, easy use bookmarks management, and the fluidity of it all. I'm still looking for something that doesn't use so much memory, though.
