    It appears there is a Browser lag issue in the Droid 2.0.1 update.

    I created a video if it so others can see it if they do not have the update already

    Browser Issue with Verizon Droid 2.0.1 Update - JefTek.com

    If you can help report the issue, we can get some attention and get it fixed from Google.

    While you may have this issue, from what i understand, most do not. My browser and speed of the browser has actually improved. There is zero lag on mine.

    New2u,

    I thought I didn't have the issue either, since I updated to 2.0.1 the other night. I don't know when I really started noticing it, but now that I see it, it becomes apparent.

    It's not on EVERY site which makes it hard to figure out why. I would chalk it off to a bad site, but It wasn't like this before.

    If you go to this site (droidforums.net) on the 2.0.1 is the scrolling smooth, or is it jerky?

    Mine is jerky both in page view and in zoomed in.

    I thought I was the only one. After update, browser is horrible. Dolphin sucks now too. I even did a factory reset just in case, only thing that did was kill my yahoo account. :mad:

    Yeah my scrolling is not as smooth either. It is like it has little "stutters" in it.... oh well hope it is addressed in the next update. Or maybe I will root my device and try to get the Milestone Browser for a fix... has anyone done that yet?

    Agreed 100%. After update to 2.01, smooth browser scrolling has become very choppy. Major downgrade to the phone experience.

    Mine is very smooth, unless its still loading data for the page which is to be expected.

    I am not having the lag issue.

    Some sites still are ok, but this particular forum and many other sites are incredibly choppy under 2.01 in comparison to how they scrolled previously. I have rebooted the phone and run with no other optional apps loaded, same jerky scrolling in browser.

    Doesn't seem to be the browser only -- scrolling through large menus in Android itself also seems to have this issue for me.
