    Stock Internet App is terrible! Anyone else having slow, hangs, etc?

    Using the stock Internet App - I thought that it was a problem with the sIII phone - it hangs, is very slow and crashes all the time... well, I thought I'd try Chrome and WOW what a difference! I can't believe, Chrome runs great, no hangs or other issues...

    Anyone else have trouble with the stock Internet App?

    Never had any trouble with the stock one, but I do agree Chrome is much better I love it. Being able to manage bookmarks on my computer from my phone is very handy, plus being able to see what I have open on my computer is basically like having instant Chrome to Phone.

    Being able to have the same bookmarks on both the phone and computer is an awesome feature. My only beef with Chrome is when watching videos, i don't seem to be able to skip ahead or back while in the media player. On the stock browser this is no problem. But it is a small beef, and i don't watch many videos outside of youtube. Chrome is my default browser.

    I use Chrome as well, but the stock browser works great for me. No hangups or crashes. Have you tried clearing the cache for it? You can do that under Settings -> Application manager -> All -> Internet. You can try clearing out the data too at that same location if you don't have a problem with losing any information you have saved in the browser.

    Most of the browsers from the market are an improvement over the stock browser. Dolphin, Opera, Chrome, ICS Browser +

    I recently installed chrome since thats what I use on my PC like it a lot better

    Another smartphone factor that varies person to person. I've tried Chrome, Firefox, Boat, Opera, Maxthon, and Stock and ultimately I've ended up with Maxthon. It's just so reliable and convenient with great swipe features. All of them are great in some way or another, so your best off trying them all for a few days. It's worth it...
