Doesn't rate xScope? Fail.
Why rate an app you have to pay for? All of the other browsers you can test out before you buy. So the developer for X-Scope fails.
You can run xScope v5, with no hindrances, for free if you like (has been free since before that test was run). Just check out the Dev's website to get it for free. I've been running v5 since it came out.
As far as v6 goes, it's a matter of personal preference. Do you want to pay a couple bucks out of pocket, or with your private info? Either way you have to pay for it.
Another issue, I tell people DON'T DOWNLOAD APPS unless they are in the market. I don't go to anyone's website to download any app. If its not in the market, then its not worth my time. Tell the developer to put a free version of his app in the market and then the folks at android could have given their opinion about the browser.
Paid v6 is on the market.
Paid apps from a dev on the market are apparently no good, and free versions of the app on the dev's website are apparently no good either? If you're going to split hairs like that then you're choosing to miss out on some great opportunities. For instance, I'm sure you're not a tasker user. That sucks.
paying for tasker and paying for a simple web browser are two pretty different things
I find the stock browser does my mobile browsing just fine. Haven't tried any other browser.
I agree. I will download a new browser from time to time, just to see what the "fuss" is about. But, I always end up deleting it and going back to the stock Android browser. Stock works great for me.
Two different apps are two different things. Right.
But the issue is the act of taking a minute to go to the dev's website in order to download the free version of an app, no matter which app you are talking about it's the same thing.
If one's policy is to refuse to buy without a trial, and refuse to get the free trial that is only available from the dev's website, it is logical to conclude that one doesn't have tasker.
I was bored and tried out the different browsers. I prefer stock with Dolphin HD coming in 2nd. However, skyfire is truly a speedy browser if that is what you want. I just hate the fact that the stock browser takes me to the AOL mobile website automatically. I want the actual webpage, so that's when I will switch to Dolphin for that purpose.
Heard the new Firefox was great. Installed, attempted to load the same high res image back to back to see how it handled it. Stock downloaded it fine, Firefox crashed. Uninstalled.
Also, could not find the "dont allow mobile view" setting.
Currently using Dolphin Mini on Evo, Opera on laptop. Not thrilled with either. Tried them all.
I am going to try XScope. Looks interesting.
Edit: Xscope is fast. I like it alot. I still use Skyfire for streaming but Xscope can hold its own. I still like Dolphin but it is being uninstalled because I have no more room!
I have used them all and use to be fan of Dolphin HD until this last update. It keep giving me a black screen and force close a lot. So I went on the hunt for a new browser and downloaded them all and the one I like the most is Opera Mini. I like the feel of it and the way it runs. Firefox was good also but it still is a work in the making.
Default seems to be the more stable one for me
I love Opera Mini and Opera Mobile, also Xscope is a nice browser with great speed, those are hands down the fastest browsers I have used, Dolphin is slow as hell now, I never use the standard browser because it just plain sucks
I hate default with such a fiery passion. I can't decide between the newest opera, or Miren browser. Both are great, but each has something different to offer me. If I had to choose though, it would be Miren, because it handles flash better than opera.
I tried Dolphin HD but didn't like it. Ugly as a brick and seemed a bit slower than the stock browser. I'm now using Miren Browser and it's AWESOME!
I also just switched over to Miren - thanks for the recommendations guys - it is great!
i have xscope browser on my hero and LOVE IT
trading for evo today and plan to still use it... super fast and reminds me of google chrome browser on my laptop
I still always find myself going back to stock browser for my Evo. Maybe its the awesome browser sense UI widget plus the stock.browser that makes it a no brained to me. I am a fan of dolphin HD browser. I use that on my rooted Nook Color though.
I use stock. Works great for me.
OK, after a bit too many FC on Miren, now trying "Boat Browser Mini", and kinda pleased ...
any of these have flash?
Boat browser is great. I went from Stock->Dolphin HD->Miren->Boat.
