    Is the stock browser that bad? I am new to the Droid and I don't see a reason to change the stock one.

    The latest version is not posting form data when I reply to a post on a few forums I visit, not sure why, it always worked before flawlessly. sigh. guess I'll have to bring up the default browser for the first time in months.
    Hopefully they know about the bug and a fix is on the way.

    I dont understand what rayvincent's issue is, i'd like to know, I just didnt know what he meant.

    I have been using the new Dolphin Browser and I have to say they really did it this time. Its UI is so polished and perfect. It is literally the greatest moble surfing expirience I have had yet. Lovin it!

    I agree with icculusX that it's a great browser, I've been using the original version then the HD version since only a few days after getting my moto Droid.
    I did an update last night and went to a site this morning where I needed to respond to someone's message to me. When I responded it refreshed the page but my response didn't show up. I tried it a few times, even after restarting the phone. I am a photographer part time and it is a way for me to keep in contact with clients. I don't think it was the site because I went on with my pc and was able to send a response. It's just nice to check my messages while I'm brushing my teeth in the morning rather than spending time in front of the pc.

    Does HD still ask you if you want to clear cache before exiting every time you close it?

    That was a deal breaker for me. Using XScope Lite and it's working well.

    Yea, I'm using dolphin HD, it still asks.

    I dont think dolphin is all its cracked up to be.. takes forever to load a webpage, now you got that silly side menu thing on the left that I cant figure how the hell to make dissapear so I just keep sliding and clicking till it goes away.. The Bookmarks to SD doesnt do crap, at least for me, after I did a system reset, it didnt have any of my old bookmarks.. soo I may be making the change to Xscope or something else..

    the old one was pretty good and it was my default browser....HD is slow, as mentioned, and asking you to clear cache before exiting every time is beyond annoying.

    A piece of garbage that HD release is. Oh, and I forgot that Froyo doesn't much like it, either.

    Wow... lots of hate for a pretty polished browser.

    And I'm not sure about you all, but DB HD 2.0.0 has been pretty quick for me to get from page to page. It hesitates as it comes up, but when it does, it all comes up at once. I like that, instead of having to wait for it to stage its development.

    I personally like it much better than stock, and have noticed it be much faster than stock, but maybe thats just my phone. Oh, and I don't mind it clearing the cache every time. Helps keep it quick, and I really only go to my bookmarks anyway, so I just swipe right and choose it from the list. No biggie at all!

    Dolphin is a great browser but I have absolutely loved Xscope. It's really fast.

    i liked dolphin hd when it came out but since the latest update its garbage to me. the swipe left for bookmarks is slow and annoying, and the swipe right then pull down to get to see all your tabs is inconvienent at best.

    trying xscope now i have had it with ddolphin hd:

    it makes my facebook weird. I can no longer send a msg to people when on their page vs the stock browser.. and also when i click a picture, i cant leave a comment or see comments.. its just the picture..

    I use facebook a lot so this is annoying and I am currently looking for a different browser.. cause stock sucks, the latest feed works better with dolphin, but it doesn't outweigh the problems...

    anyone else have these problems? I've got free dolphin HD

    I love Dolphin HD. I run it full screen because I like taking advatange of the full screen real estate. The swipe left and right is convenient for that. I run overclocked so there is no lag, though at stock clock speed it does run noticeably slower than the stock browser. I do wish they would release a red theme already. Its been a month since I switched over and lost the red on the original Dolphin.

    The option to set the user agent is nice to avoid mobile versions of certain pages.

    All in all the UI is very polished, clean, and snappy. It is my preferred browser, and I love tabbed browsing.
