    What's the best browser y'all have found to work on the nexus? I've tried Dolphin which I loved on my old DroidX, but it didn't seem to work as well on here. I'm using Chrome right now. Was curious is any others worked better.

    I like Dolphin HD, better and faster than Chrome and the stock browser.

    I'm at a bit of a loss as to what the difference between stock and chrome is...

    They seem to be almost exactly the same to me.

    Can someone please enlighten me?

    Best is subjective, which this thread clearly shows. Each has their own subjective pros and cons, which may or may not matter to the end user. For example Chrome is useless to me as it lacks Flash support, as I still visit a few pages that use Flash. Does that make Chrome a bad browser? No, as shown here quite a few like it.

    I try other browsers, and while they have some nice features, I almost always end up back with the stock browser. It has most of the features I want/need in a browser.

    This is by no means a bash on you at all cupfull, but am I the only one who is tired of hearing and reading "best is subjective?" We know...

    I think the OP was clearly looking for OPINIONS when the following comment was made in the first post.

    Please fell free to call me out if I am out of line here, but I think I read "best is suggestive" in every single thread that is requesting other user's opinions.

    It is clearly a true and 100% valid comment to make, but does it really need to be said in every thread where the OP is obviously asking for other people's opinions?

    Lol sorry for the rant... no harm meant at all.

    I'm going to have to say Firefox because my schools website doesn't accept chrome or safari, which by the way it sees the default browser as chrome! So the only way to log on was to use Firefox. I like Firefox's tab method.

    I can understand your annoyance with my redundant responses. But I say this as I don't feel everyone knows this. When I see "What is the best *insert noun here*?" posts I feel obligated to tell the user that personal preference comes into play, and that popularity isn't always the best option for every person. Some of these sorts of threads don't make me think the OP is asking for suggestions, they make me think he/she wants to know what is the best. I have seen the OP come back and say something like "It looks like item A and item B are popular here, which is better between these two?" in threads in the past. I also see the helpful folks replying that forget that their own needs and wants may be different than person asking the question. Which my advice is also works for them.

    I am basically trying to make sure that the OP does a little experimentation to form his/her own opinion and not just go with what is popular. Sure there are many cases where the popular thing may be your favorite, but in most situations it is in your best interest to try as many options as you can to see which is the best solution for you. Especially when it is as painless as downloading a few relatively small apps, most of which are free, and then using them as you see fit.

    I really don't try to sound like a repetitious pest (even if it is true haha), and I am sorry if I do. I do usually try and offer some suggestions along with my best is subjective response, perhaps even putting in my opinion as well into these posts. I even did so in this thread. I understand users want suggestions when they ask these sorts of questions. I just can't bring myself to say something like "Stock is the best browser." and then leave it at that, when I know there are other browsers that are also good, perhaps even better in ways. Even if my own opinion is that way.

    tl;dr Cup is a redundant nuisance.
