    What browser are you using on your phone?

    Looking for a good browser with tabs and can handle flash.
    I used to run Dolphin, but would like a diff. one.

    Thanks!

    Wow, I use Dolphin and can't imagine a better browser. What about it do you not like? Just curious.

    I read a couple of places that they track, or potentially track, your surfing.

    Anyway, anyone with ideas?
    What's good? xscope? skyfire? opera mini? other?

    I use Dolphin HD and find it to be superb. I used xScope for a long time and it is just about as good (imho). Opera Mini is absolutely terrific if you are a limited data plan as it compresses downloads and seems to really save on data usage. I ran it in order to test it for my daughter and on a 15 minute test of just visiting website after website, it reported I would have downloaded (and I don't remember the exact numbers anymore) 2.17 megs and but only 600kb registered as downloaded. They said it was a saving of 85% in terms of data used.

    What exactly does that do?
    Does it filter my surfing through mywebzines? or block it?

    i use maxthon browser. i had page loading issues with dolphin that were just ridiculous. maxthon is quick and handles flash like a champ. my personal favorite at the moment.
