    Im not too happy with the stock browser for this razr. Can't figure out how to make the text fit to screen for most websites. Seems to work for a few sites.Tried installing dolphin and had the same problem.

    anyone having this same issue?

    I like the stock one my self.

    First I turn the phone horizontal for web browsing. Then I either double tap the article I want to read, or pinch to zoom and then double tap to format the text. Hope that helps.

    Well up until you said you already tried dolphin I was going to suggest that one. I'm currently using dolphin for my Incredible and it works pretty well, resizes text just as well as the HTC Sense stock browser. Plus the tab system is easier. You could try playing with the settings, I think there is the option to determine the auto wrap(the feature that auto resizes text).

    Also you get a bunch more options on the stock browser if you type "about:debug" into the URL bar(make sure it doesn't have the http://www. in front if it), and suddenly you have access to more settings than before. I would try that and look for auto wrap if your browser supports that feature.

    Typing in "about:debug" should apply to all stock android browsers regardless of manufacturer or hardware and it will give you other options. I'm not so sure about what phones support auto text wrapping though. I know HTC phones should have it but I'm not as familiar with Motorola phones.

    COOL. I can confirm it works on the OG. After more than two years, OG is still full of surprises

    Thanks people. I didnt know about the double tap. I didn't need to do that with my incredible. one more question is I can't figure out how to browse full websites (not mobile).incredible seemed to have an option in the settings for this, but didn't see that option on the default or dolphin

    Dolphin does it. Go into the settings and change user agent to desktop.

    Just have to say "about:debug" was pretty cool. Love the settings you can find even when you're not rooted!

    Did you type "about:debug" without quotes?
    Nothing for me on D1
