    There's a couple, Xscope, Dolphin, Steel, and Stock, I assume others but those are the 4 I've used, I personally prefer steele because it's the cleanest, what are the advantages of the browsers you use?

    xScope - quick, to the point, minimal interface, works fine, personally I think it's fugly

    Dolphin - nice looking, full of bloat though, some people say it lags, haven't personally had that problem, some odd locations of important things (for example, getting to the bookmarks is not very user friendly)

    Stock - personally my favorite but no multi touch

    Imported Milestone MT browser - absolutely my favorite, however, keyboard lags when typing on a forum such as this one that is ran by vB code...not sure if this is due to it being an imported code from another phone or if the stock one on the Milestone is this way as well

    Haven't tried the Steele, I might have to look into it. I bought both Dolphin and xScope but personally I prefer Dolphin at the moment. Ultimately I don't really care much for either at the moment. Hoping for an update to xScope or mobile FireFox to come out so I can switch.

    It's a special mod that keeps Pandora running.

    Haha, that's because he's DJ Pauly from the Shore. MT Milestone is my favorite.

    All the discussions about browsers I've seen, I never seem to see steel mentioned.

    Steel is my new default browser.

    - Favorites easy to access...check
    - Minimal bloat...check
    - The bars aren't just some single pixel line (although they aren't special but still...better than xScope)...check

    Only downfall is no multi touch.

    Works for me.

    See why I don't understand why noone else uses it, it's a bit buggy sometimes, but overall it works nicely for me, I like the fullscreen that just uses the screen for the browser, not buttons and other bull****.

    I guess I should check to see how it performs on the forum before I make my final decision.

    Multitouch is overrated, I think the zoom on it works fine, either doubletap to zoom in / our, or hold and wait for the zoom to appear. So steel > others other than multitouch?

    I can't give a real answer without really using it. So far, so good.
