    Okay I am using the Sprint Hero and am looking for a different browser.

    I currently use Dolphin, and I like it, but my main complaint is that if I save a bookmark with it, it doesn't go to the same bookmark list as my widget.

    That is one feature I would like the browser to have, though that may only be on the default one.

    I do like that you can download Youtube videos with Dolphin.

    I know there are a few others, such as Opera and Steel. Which do you suggest, knowing the things I like to do with my browser ^^?

    Thanks alot,

    P.S. Search didn't work for me.

    Dolphin. I love the gestures. I just use shortcut links instead of the bookmarks widget

    Dolphin is a good browser, no doubt. Give xScope a try and then pick between the two best (imho) browsers (Dolphin & xScope).

    I switch between the stock browser and Opera Mini. Opera Mini is just so fast.

    My sentiments exactly! It's by far the best browser for Android and the unbelievable part is it's still in BETA so it will only get better!

    Like those above said - Opera is by far the best in my opinion - I used Dolphin for a while and preferred it to stock browser - then I tried Xscope and liked it even more - but Opera is by far my favourite.

    When it comes to browsers, I have to have the pinch zoom feature. Opera would be great but I haven't figured out how to get it to pinch zoom. I am sure it does because it is a fairly new browser. Also something that i can't figure out is how to force Opera to load all the page data before I scroll down. There is a slight delay while it loads or write to the screen that was hidden (lower on the scrolled screen). Maybe that is why it loads the initial screen so much faster than the other browsers.

    Hi new to the forums...I use opera and xscope. I tend to use opera as it is faster but as pwabbit stated I too cannot figure out the pinch zoom feature (if it is even possible).

    As others have said Opera is fast but it doesn't render some sites properly. I usually just use the stock browser but use Opera from time to time.

    Tried to find it. All I found was the developer upset about a leaked version.

    i am using dolphin with the plus patch, i really don't like it tho. Opera mini is ok. What about this Infinity one ? The screenshots look super cool and it does all kinds of stuff, but the market can't seem to find it.

    Definitely xScope! It's fast, full-featured, intuitive, and solid ... and the developer is very responsive.

    I'm definitely digging Opera Mini. Love the homepage, tabs, and the speed... Great browser option IMHO.

    I like xScope, the only downside is that the full version isn't free, it is worth it though.

    Xscope is by far the end all be all browser currently. Does everything Firefox mobile says it will have (minus addons) and is BLAZING fast.

    It even has a new zoom method which is nice for one hand use. I wont be using anything else until something comes along that wows me. Which maybe never.

    I have skyfire but since the leak this was posted from the CEO..

    Hello to those on this thread. We appreciate the interest in our latest product for Android.

    The early alpha version of our product that is being circulated is unauthorized and has been purposely disabled from connecting to our cloud service. Hence the controls are there, but without our server-side connection, the video and other functionality won't work. So if you think you have it working, you surely do not as all the key functionality that defines it as a Skyfire product has been disconnected.

    Don't worry, you won't have to wait long as we will soon be launching the product for the public.

    before today I haven't even heard of xscope. downloaded it after reading this thread, my favorite browser by far. Its just really clean and polished. I've tried opera, dolphin, and tunny, xscope is the best of them. Opera feels like a low budget browser, sure it can load fast, but has problems rendering pages, and just feels subpar.
