Which would u recommend for the EVO ...Dolphin,Opera or stock???
I like dolphin. Stock browser won't let you have more than 3 windows open at one time. Also has tabs. And plugins for speeddial extensions.
I've found "xScope" is the most complete I've used. Fast/efficient & has a LOT of features.
i like the stock. i tried dolphin, but the dolphin crap sucked up too much screen
the stock also supports 4 windows.
I'm happy with stock.
I love Dolphion HD. There are so many add ons and themes that you can choose from.
I'm not sold on any of the browsers honestly. Dolphin is very pretty but a total resource hog and the scrolling isn't that smooth or as responsive as I want. I like xScope, and its light on the resource usage, but really ugly. Not a fan of the stock, but its the lesser of three evils I guess.
It seems tough to get the perfect balance of form and function to me.
I really like Opera its fast and loads all images and text all at once and has a cool homepage to set your bookmarks. Works very well for me.
Can't pinch to zoom in Opera, can you? Thats a major major dealbreaker for me.
Stock browser with the official flash from the nexus one. Seems to take care of the laggy scrolling for now.
Dolphin. Opera has a hard time loading embedded videos and images. I love opera's layout though.
Opera has no flash support, doesn't render all pages correctly, doesn't have pinch to zoom correctly, and I don't think it even reflows. Opera was great for tiny slow phones back in the symbian days, but it's pointless now.
Dolphin HD is what I use now, and that's mostly for tabs and the slide left functionality for bookmark access. I use it in fullscreen mode for better screen real estate.
naw man its sucks its like a tap zoom.
I like Dolphin HD so far
I am surprised no one mentionrd skype its almost perfect its beats the stock,opera,dolphin out of the water ! But I never tried xscope
I'm using Dolphin HD for now. I'm still waiting on Firefox's official browser, when that comes out I'm gonna use it.
Dolphin Browser HD for me. It's the best.
I think they were going for Skyfire... But it's just a guess...
I like xScope the best, the tab layout is brilliant and feels like a desktop browser. Dolphin HD is good but the interface to me feels like it occupies too much of the screen.
I cannot find anything wrong with it, aside from an issue with flash playback (the sound doesn't stop playing if you exit).
Pin-zoom is the best feature.
Sorry everyone i meant skyfire not skype. Just curious what is difference between skyfire and xscope
Dolphin HD for me. Plays videos, reflows text, does pinch and zoom.
But the killer feature for me are the gestures. I can load web pages in a split second with gestures, go to the bottom or top of the screen with gestures, and slide between tabs with gestures (this is a new feature). I can navigate to the previous or next screen, close tabs, open new tabs, go to bookmarks, reload the page -- probably something like 80 % of the commands in Dolphin are done with gestures.
I did flop the gesture OSD to the right side since the transparency was interfering with readability on the left, and I disabled the swiping to access bookmarks because it's not tight enough for me.
But the gestures save me a ton of time.
I too, like xscope better then all the browsers mentioned on this thread.
I've tried them all and gave them all a solid 2 weeks of use each. After all I am sticking with xScope. It's fast and reliable. No problems with playing flash content either.
