    i don't think there's a chrome android one. i've tried all of them on other phones, and ended up deleting them for one annoyance or another. dolphin seems to be one of the better ones, but i like the stock browser on ICS :D

    I prefer dolphin over stock because:
    1. It has an exit button.
    2. I don't have to keep setting it to use desktop mode.

    I prefer dolphin over miren, xscope, and opera because it has better bookmark organization.

    I used to like miren best but it started acting up. On my tablet I love mx browser but it doesn't seem as good on the phone. Personally I just didn't like dolphin so in the end opera is my browser of choice.

    Opera mini for me. The permissions on Dolphin were way too much.

    the stock browser on ICS is Chrome browser, I have tried all the mobile browsers, even BOLT in my last blackberry 2 years ago haha, and nothing compares to the one on ICS...plus it syncs with my bookmarks on my pc with chrome at work!

    I personally really like the stock browser. Tab previews, fast, it just works.

    I am trying to hunt down a plugin that remembers the request desktop for sites though.

    I personally use Dolphin HD. Tabbed browsing, gesture based input, and alot of smooth and nice features really make it a great browser. It's quick, looks great, and the Webzine feature is pretty nice; especially on a smaller screen like the D2.

    I currently use the stock ICS browser, i really like it a lot. If i was to switch to another one, it would be opera.

    I started off using Dolphin HD when I first picked up my Gnex on the 15th but had to delete it and go with the stock browser because it was freezing up at times and force closing. The stock ICS browser isn't bad so I'll be using it for a while until Dolphin updates to a more stable version for ICS.

    The Stock Browser is the closet to Chrome you're gonna get until the Mobile Chrome actually ready.

    I vote for Boat Browser, number one and Dolphin, number two. Both good quality browsers.

    I hate the stock browser but I think it loads the fastest. I had dolphin, but hated the bookmarks. I am alternating between opera and FireFox. I think opera loads faster, but many more pages fail to render properly compared to FireFox. I like the bookmarks better on opera. However, due to the failed rendering, I think I'm going to uninstall opera
