    I never used anything other than the stock browser for a long time. Then I decided to try Dolphin HD and I'm glad I did. The gestures are the greatest thing ever

    +1 Dolphin HD browser is so much better than stock and the gestures are great.

    Trying out Dolphin HD now. The gesture function is pretty cool, but a lot of the gestures seem to overlap. Pretty nice set up for the browser though and it runs good on the stock tbolt.

    Will try skyfire tomorrow!

    You may have figured this out, but in case you haven't, you can go into settings and create your own gestures, too. For example, when I draw an "e" it closes the browser and an "h" takes me to my home page

    Yea, I got that. Still playing around with it, just similar looking letters such as C and capital G often seem to get confused, but maybe I just need to make the gestures more distinct.

    Firefox 4. With a few add-ons it is almost as good as the full browser.

    No love for Xscope? I've been using it since my D1 days and love it... I use Dolphin HD for desktop view, Xscope for everything else, and have Firefox to play around with...

    I used Miren Browser for a while, but just went back to Xscope.

    I like Dolphin HD.

    The stock browser is alright too. Dolphin just gives me access to favorites quicker and the gestures are sheezzznit.

    Skyfire 4.0 is blazing fast on my Thunderbolt. Probably gonna stick with this browser for a while. Thanks for all the input thus far, and feel free to continue to post up your opinions. I'm sure a number of other users appreciate the suggestions and insight as well.

    Opera Mini loads the fastest, it's what I've been using since my Dinc.
