    Just curious. If you have Dolphin web browser currently, are you planning on switching to Mozilla's mobile browser? If so why.?!

    I'll see which one is better first. Who knows when it'll come out?

    I use Mozilla at home. If it is good, I will. Is Google Chrome out? I would think that a Droid would work well with Chome.

    I love Firefox, it's far more stable than IE.

    Dolphin is good for what it is, but I don't see it being able to compete with Fennec. Not when Firefox has such a huge fan base.

    I think the only thing that would keep most people on Dolphin would be the pinch zoom.

    I am looking forward to giving Mozilla Mobile a try. (But I am NOT a Dolphin users... I tried it and dropped it in about 10 minutes)

    YES YES YES YES!!!!

    For the record, I'm not a Dolphin user either. I don't care for pinch zoom either, I don't understand what all the rage is about.

    I use XScope - Far superior to Dolphin in my eyes.

    Wow I just tried XScope. I like it. I have only been playing with it for 10 min or so. It is very fast.

    I don't think it's about wanting or not wanting to pay for content or apps. It's about removing those blinking, flashing moving ads. They're annoying and detract from one's ability to enjoy the site.

    They're as annoying as this guy: :icon_ banana::icon_ banana::icon_ banana::icon_ banana::icon_ banana::icon_ banana::icon_ banana::icon_ banana::icon_ banana::icon_ banana:

    Currently I have Dolphin installed but the only thing I use it for is the video download feature. Otherwise I generally don't bother with it. Adblock would be nice too cause I really don't need banner ads eating up my data plan.

    And seriously, can anyone tell me why pinch-zoom is so important? It isn't the only type of multitouch in the world and it is much more awkward to use than double-tap zoom.

    The default browser on all androids is basically a mobile version of Google Chrome. I'm not sure where I found out about this but I am pretty sure it's accurate.

    Of course. But that doesn't exclude the possibility of 'soft' caps or Verizon deciding to change the terms of 'unlimited' data plans.
    Not to mention the effect that animated image and flash ads have on page load times when you are using a browser that tries to act like a full desktop browser (especially once we get Flash 10 on the Droid).
