    When i got my droid I noticed how laggy the browser was and did some research. People said how in 2.0 when u actually scrolled around the browser would turn off anti aliasing and as soon as you stopped scrolling it would kick it back on... thats what made scrolling in 2.0 so fluid... 2.0.1 keeps anti aliasing on all the time which makes things alot choppier than they were in 2.0.

    Anyways my point is those who are wanting an easy fix just need to download the milestone browser from the droid hacks forum... Milestone browser makes anti aliasing turn off when u scroll. As soon as I downloaded it i saw how much smoother it was. You can actually look close and see how the pictures blur when u scroll. Dolphin and XScope or any other browser from the market does not turn off the anti aliasing when u scroll that is why they also lag.

    Im just letting people know its a temporary fix plus the pinch zoom is nice.... Browser lag pisses me off and ive been looking for a fix for ever...

    Idk why some people say there browser isnt laggy on 2.0.1 ... maybe they came from crappy phones or have never experienced 2.0 browsing... its definitely alot closer to how my itouch browsing experience was... dam amazing

    I'm not sure what you guys are referring to as lag, but my normal browser works just like any of the others from what I can tell, I have tried 3 of them so far.

    yeah i had 2.0 when i first got my droid and there was definitely a difference in the browsers whenever 2.0.1 came out...but i really shouldnt be complaining since i had a BB Storm 1 before i got my droid!! 2.0.1 was actually lightyears away from the Storm! or even the Storm 2 for that matter!!

    Thats not a fix. A workaround, perhaps.

    The milestone browser has its own bugs. You don't have to go far on alldroid to see that.

    I actually have a question. If this is a fix, then why wouldn't running Dolphin provide the same results? It too has this lagging issue.
