Yeps I must say xscope is awesome
xScope is really buggy, the UI is annoying, and I've had it mess up zoom and such before.
wow, I just tried out xScope and it is noticeably faster then dolphin HD and has a really clean layout, I also like the one finger zoom.
I just found my favorite browser
thanks to everyone who recommended it.
I use the stock because I'm too lazy to compare browsers, and it's so much better than smartphone browsers I've used in the past. But what is the deal with the 4 window limit?!?
To me they all suck (stock, dolphin HD and xScope)... I browse craigslist a lot while waiting in lines or other down time. I hate that none of them seem to go back to the same spot on the previous page after pressing the back button.
I can't figure out how to go to full web site of CBS.com with Dolphin.
With stock web browser, I can watch full episodes on full CBS.com web site. Usually hitting that Mobile view (GWT) ((wtf ever that is)) usually works - but on CBS.com I get an error.
And the flip side, sometimes Dolphin does flash better than stock... shrug.
So, I use both.. heh.
I used stock be default, but I keep on Dolphin in case I have issues trying to view a full site. I know stock supports the full site now, but on some sites, when I click on the "full site" link, it brings me to the main page, and if I click on a link on that page, it reverts back to the mobile version, so I can't actually view a particular article on the page in full page mode.
It isn't often, enough for me to feel the need to have a second option.
I really liked the dolphin hd browser but all of a sudden I I noticed it has slowed down quite a bit lately
off topic, but Craigslist has an app you can download to browse rather than using a browser
Dolphin HD for me over stock which ive had issues with since day 1 -
Dolphin has some great features but the side menus get annoying when your trying to scroll around - guess no browser is perfect -
They all suck, FireFox needs to come out with one
Anybody have a link to Xscope app? I'm going to try that one out. Dolphin Browser has been getting on my nerves lately and every now and then just randomly closes while I'm browsing.
You can get a beta version of Fennec if you really want. I tried it shortly after I got my Evo after release and it still had a long way to go, but they were still doing nightly builds at that point.
xScope Browser Lite (free) - Android app on AppBrain
In xScope, hold down on the link for 1-2 seconds until it pops up in a new tab, then go to the tab and read it. When you're done, hit the back button and the tab will close and you'll be back at the original page at the original spot with no wasted page reloading and no repositioning to the top of the page. Even better, do this on 4-5 links, scroll the tabs all the way to the end by swiping them left, and then read 5 pages worth before you're back to your original craigslist search page. This is great on 3g since the pages all load up in the background.
If the tab bar isn't always showing, turn 'swipe for tabs' and 'hide tabs if only one left' off in the options.
Anybody know the difference between the light xScope browser (free) vs. full xScope browser (paid)?
Dolphin Browser HD, unless I'm just hitting forums and dont care about flash then I use Opera Mini
Stock, definitely, then Opera.
I appreciate your input! This is indeed the browser I have been looking for for so long.
Before froyo I loved Dolphin HD, after froyo, stock. Why? Because of FLASH!!
Dolphin HD does flash. Both on demand and preloaded.
Dolphin HD is the best one I know of it allows you to have tabs and you can get multiple add ons that make things easier. My favorite thing about it is that I can still acces my notifications bar while using it.
Whats you favorite web browser? i have Dolphin,xscope,firefox and skyfire installed
