    Skip Opera, its terrible on the Droid.
    The built in browser is quite good, but Dolphin looks to be even better!!

    Dolphin or the regular browser at this time. You can not go wrong with either. Worlds ahead of BB and most others and right up there with the Iphones Safari. Excellent whichever you choose. If you like the pinch type zoom then Dolphin would be the way to go. Try both...hell...they are free.

    Look for the mobile version of Firefox sometime next year. Until then, the stock browser on the Droid is my favorite.

    Isn't the stock Browser Google Chrome?

    I tried Chrome on my notebook when it 1st came out & it was kinda OK. I reloaded it today and it seems to be a lot better.

    Dolphin is pretty cool though.

    I am all about the stock browser. I think it's way better than Dolphin. Fullenwider surprisingly they don't call it Chrome; not sure why. You'd think it would help with branding to have the name both places but they just call it "Browser."

    I've been using the stock browser. Pinch-to-zoom doesn't seem that important to me, and the double tap zoom is great when browsing with one hand.
