    I don't think there is, but that is just me. The stock browser is an improvement over previous browsers to say the least.

    Not yet. The previous versions I tried left a lot to be desired.

    I have found the stock browser to be perfectly fine but people say in reviews how Chrome is the best without backing it up. Am I missing something?

    There are those folks that will say anything Google puts out is better than anything else...I guess that is normal in an Android world. I guess the best judge of any app is what works well for you. Some will say that nothing beats Dolphin. So, pick the one that fits your usage needs best. Maybe it will be Chrome...it's a person preference.

    I was a faithful dolphin user. The first app i downloaded on every device i ever get. But ics stock browser has dethroned it, i deleted dolphin after using the stock browser for a few days. And unless chrome can promise me better performance, i will stay with stock for a long time.

    Sounds like me. I've been a faithful Dolphin user for a while, but I'm really liking this stock ICS browser. The one thing that kept me with Dolphin was the slide to access bookmarks, but that has been addressed in the stock browser with quick controls. It seems a little faster than Dolphin to me, and I think the text looks better, too. I've been trying Chrome, but so far I think it's just so-so. My biggest complaint is that it's slow to load the bookmark page. Also, if anyone knows a quicker way to access the bookmarks than hitting menu->bookmarks I would love to hear it. I don't know why they didn't include something like quick controls in Chrome.

    If you use chrome as a default browser on your pc its a lot better, you can sync both devices and you could be browsing droid forums on your pc then when you need to leave the house it will be on your android chrome browser for convenience, I like it a lot!

    Not the R3DBAND from youtube, I love those guys.

    The lack of an easy way to access my history on Chrome was an issue with me. A google search turned up that I could visit "chrome:\\history" (minus the quotes) and it would take me to the history page. I added it to my bookmarks so it'd be much faster for me to get to.
