    I was so happy with Dolphin, but now that they updated it...not so happy. However, I still like multi-tab and I don't want to go to the stock browser. What have you guys been using?

    FYI: Firefox is developing a browser - that is what I use on my computer.

    Dolphin. I like being able to close my browser when I'm done using it. In fact, I like being able to close ALL my programs when I'm done using them.

    Stock for me.

    I tried Dolphin when I first got my phone and was less then impressed. Also tried Opera (used on all my other phones) and found it too buggy. I have not tried Steel because ultimately I'm happy with the stock browser.

    I use dolphin for downloading youtube videos, and stock for anything else. I have noticied that sometimes the stock browser gets buggy though and takes forever to load a page. When I get out of that and load the same page using dolphin it loads it right up...

    If anyone needs it, I have the version of dolphin from right before the update that made it buggy and lag backed up on my SD card

    I tried Dolphin, but after the update it has gone down hill and it doesn't do flash.

    Stock. I've tried dolphin and was okay with it...but thought stock was a ton faster, and I personally am ALL ABOUT SPEEEEED! Period.

    The fastest one will always get my vote :D

    Stock. I also tried Dolphin a couple of times and it just never felt good. I also really missed the double tap on text that the stock has. I rarely have to use multitouch because of this.

    I was lucky enough to read the reviews of the latest Dolphin update prior to clicking the upgrade button, so I'm still on the best version of it. I hope they don't have it set to expire any time soon.

    I'm using stock. I like a number of the features of Dolphin, but there are some missing or buggy features that are too important to me to switch. Dolphin doesn't support flash and the multitouch zoom is way slower and choppy compared to the stock browser. The next browser upgrade I get will probably be the upgraded stock browser when 2.1 is released.

    I do like the tabs in Dolphin though.

    Steel all the way.

    Dolphin is to bulky. Steel is what you wanted the stock browser to be.

    No worries, it doesn't run on our phone anyway.
