    Dolphin HD was pretty good but the stock browser works good for my needs and seems to load pages on my phone better.

    Currently have these 3 web browsers installed on my EVO:

    -Stock browser
    -Opera
    -Dolphin

    ....I would like to streamline my browser options and remove 2 of these. Which browser, in your opinion, is fastest.

    ...Besides these browsers are there any others ones you would recommend?

    Update: decided (at least temporarily) to remove Dolphin. I noticed that whenever I chose to go to a site it would give me a choice of either the stock browser or Dolphin. If I picked Dolphin it went right to the site. If I picked the stock browser it made me pick it over and over again (4-6 times). Since removing Dolphin that has not happened. I hate proprietary systems/programs.

    I know what is not... Firefox Beta5. Blah, so much garbage even compared to Dophine... let alone stock. I'm a huge Firefox supporter on PC but it has a long ways to go b/f I'll reinstall on my phone.

    I tried Dolphin HD for a while, liked it.. but the lag was starting to annoy me. Removed it and tried out Miren, but I absolutely hate the UI, ughh!... So I'm right using the Stock Browser for now. Honestly, if the Stock Browser had the ability to open more pages, I'd probably be content with it altogether.

    Ironically, stock. Although I do use FireFox and Dolphin alot. I have all these and Opera on there so that I can have my own browsers, and visitors to my phone can use the others and not be on my personal stuff like Facebook and log me out and such.

    I love the stock web browser first of all because it was the first one that allowed me to play videos in it. The others didn't until the Flash release. It was also stock and where could it go wrong? It was made for the phone, so it should be the best. It is a very nice browser, but I couldn't live without the others.

    Now that Opera Mobile has flash, it is my browser of choice. I also liked that they added support for CyanogenMod. I thought that was pretty cool of them. For speed and one-touch zoom, however, I still really like Opera Mini too.
