    Following on from this thread I thought it might be nice to start a poll to see which Browser is most popular amongst the androidforums.com community.

    xScope has become a very polished browser. When I was running android 1.5 on my Hero, xScope didn't have a version for 1.5 (they do now). I was wondering what the big deal was about xScope. Then I switched to Damage's 2.1 ROM, and I was able to use xScope. I can see why people like it so much.

    If a mod comes across this, I realised I forgot to add Steel. Could you please edit the poll?

    I have opera mini 5 on my dext but would love to have skyfire. If you have never seen skyfire its a must. plays ANY video from web pages inc BBC iplayer. I had it on my N95 and worked very well, could also play flash games online as it has built-in flash. Just waiting for its release to droid. This is it running on my N95 over the 3G network.

    The program is awesome and getting even better by the day. The developer is very active and really responsive to the users comments. I am quite pleased. (To conspiracy theorists: No, I am not associated with the developer in any way, other than I use the software)

    Currently switching between Opera Mini and Dolphin. Opera for quick browsing or reading articles (quick page loads). Dolphin for image viewing.

    I hadn't heard about xscope. I'll have to check it out...

    I was one of the "stock, but haven't tried others" votes. The stock app seems to work fine for what I do.

    i tried dolphin at some point, but didn't like it, so used stock browser instead; but now that opera mini 5 beta is out, i'm using it - so much faster! :D

    Dolphin Browser all the way on my Behold 2. I like the way tabs were implemented and the gestures make so many of the common tasks a snap. I find it pretty intuitive.

    Opera mini seems too ridgid to me. Not real user friendly IMO.

    The stock browser is a complete mess as far as I'm concerned.

    Haven't tried xScope or Steel but will now.
