    Battle Of The Browsers


    Finding that perfect browser for your device is something that makes owning an Android device a bit hard, all those decisions sometimes make life harder, well PCWorld has something for you. They have put together a battle of the browsers, and the winner seem pretty obvious. First place went to Skyfire, which I personally have known since it made its first debut on Windows Phone and now is my second favorite browser on Android. The second place went to the stock browser, which was .1 seconds better than my favorite browser... Opera.

    Long story short, all these browsers are great, but if you are less for visual and more for speed, Skyfire is your best bet for the experience you want.

    xscope wasn't included in this test unfortunately. I have been using that browser and it seems pretty fast. Wonder how it would have fared?

    Yeah, I was also quite disappointed not to see xscope in the comparison. I use that as my default browser.

    Exclamation Missing information

    it seems that there is information missing that would help users to make knowledgeable decisions on which browser to use. While Skyfire blows the others away in load speed you make a comment that leaves me thinking I would not get the best experience if I used Skyfire. can you tell me what you mean by "if you are less for visual and more for speed"

    I concur about seeing xScope in the mix. I'm really liking 6.0.

    i use opera mini and love it...might not be "visually" cool but its simple, to the point, and way fast for me and it "loads" the pages before it actually gets loaded if u understand what im saying..lol...but i have never tried skyfire..i dont see many good reviews and i see a lot of mixed reviews on xscope and i think u have to pay for xscope now also

    Indeed, xScope definitely beats the rest hands down. Perhaps it's too far ahead of the pack to include in the chart, after all we wouldn't want to smash the crap out of the orhers-that just wouldn't be very kind
