    +1 on Xscope. Flash works fine with xScope. I'm not feelin the look of the UI but at least it's functional.

    Didn't google state the stock browser was supposed to be sped up in 2.2?

    I've actually swapped back to it to see, and currently, run it over Dolphin HD.

    Skyfire works fine on 2.2. Haven't tried it with BB FRF57v.01 yet. i assume it would still work fine.

    I prefer xScope, though.

    I go back and forth between dolphin hd and the stock browser. I like the clean look of the stock browser, but I also like a couple of the bells and whistles in dolphin (mainly the full screen browsing and the improved download manager)

    Yeah, I agree. The Stock Browser is currently better than Dolphin HD. IMO, xScope is faster than the stock browser especially when playing flash vids.

    I don't like Dolphin at all (it's just not for me) but I kind of wish the stock browser was a bit faster, and I wish there was an option to load webpages full versions. A lot of the best web pages will automatically redirect me to the mobile versions without flash.
