    The consensus on best browsers would be xscope or dolphin hd.

    I'm fine with the stock browser but that's just me :)

    Stock for me.
    Tried them all , each had it's own shortfall and since I don't use the browser that often I don't care for bugs that I have to work around

    Xscope fan here. Probably more from habit now. Back in the early days it was much better than the native browser, but I'm not sure that is still true. So, that's one definite maybe vote for Xscope. :)

    You need to just try out the options for yourself. I personally prefer the stock one. YMMV, of course.

    Native browser here. Does everything I need it to do.

    In the rare case I need to use another browser I use Skyfire. The "enhanced" flash playback can be useful from time to time.

    Miren Browser Rocks, except for the icon, that kind of sucks

    Official English Version of Miren Browser - xda developers

    I was always one of the users who felt the stock android browser was good enough but Miren Browser has a lot of cool stuff built into it. Give it a shot if you haven't worst case scenario: you end up deleting it

    Here you go. Right out of CyanogenMod's latest nightly. Yes, it's stock.
