    Anyone else having the browser suck the life out of the battery? If I don't force close it when I'm done with it the % can be higher than the display usage.

    I'm mostly on SBFTech.com there are flash ads and what not so I thought maybe that's it. So I downloaded Dolphin HD to test and it seems to not be an issue. But I haven't used it enough to know for sure.

    I don't know if its a rubix issues or more of an issue with the site I'm on. Just thought I'd throw it out there as something to keep an eye on.

    I didn't like the stock browser always being active either. Switched to dolphin browser hd and it has an exit option that will close the browser and delete history and cache files. Works great for me.

    I didn't mind it staying open. So after lunch/breaks I can continue where I was. But it being active and draining the battery is no good
