    Does it crash immediately when you open it or can you visit a few pages?
    Did you know that most Android web browsers spy on you? Not only is it a violation of privacy, it wastes battery power, bandwidth, and slows your device. Check out a free, ad-less, full-featured, fast browser that does not spy or monitor in anyway: Naked Browser in the Google Play Store. I made Naked Browser in response to the privacy violations of apps like Dolphin, Boat, Ninesky, Miren, and others. Naked Browser is a not for profit app.

    Yeah, but chrome sucks. Its slow, not very well developed, fonts are sized wrong,etc. I actually created a thread about this a few days ago in the s3 general discussions, on this site, as well as q and a on xda. So this is indeed a very real issue. It's about time this issue, which stated a few days ago got recognized.

    Edit: this issue is affecting just about everyone i know with an android device.

    I actually think its faster and more stable. I like it.

    Word is the browser issue is related to an upcoming update.

    Even with the touch lag and lack of landscape cut and paste? Yikes.. to each their own i guess.. yeah i figured the browser bugs are related to SOME change... because this def wasnt happening last week.

    Something easy to try is changing your browser's home page. The Android WebView that many browsers use sometimes becomes unstable (usually because of JavaScript). I've seen quite a few complaints lately about problems with google.com in browsers. Google must have changed something on their servers to cause this. If your home page is set to Google (and it is by default in the stock browser) try changing it to something else and see if stability improves. Just a guess.
    Did you know that most Android web browsers spy on you? Not only is it a violation of privacy, it wastes battery power, bandwidth, and slows your device. Check out a free, ad-less, full-featured, fast browser that does not spy or monitor in anyway: Naked Browser in the Google Play Store.
