    I don't usually use any of the ones on your list because the one I use seems to perform better for me.

    Nah, Dolphin is old and quirky. I think the dev has stopped working on it.

    I use the default (it's just called "Browser") mainly, but I also have Dolphin and xScope.

    Honestly the best thing for you to do is try different ones and see what works best for you.

    My favorite is definitely xScope. It's quick and switching tabs is a breeze. I would like Dolphin HD better if they would implement a better way of switching tabs other than having to scroll to the top of the current page or pressing menu or swiping left and then dragging down. I love the swipe left and right to switch tabs on xScope.
