    Just got the bionic lapdock, not a big Firefox fan. Any way to put google chrome, or another browser on there. Does ics have chrome built in, seems stupid that moto would leave that out

    From what I know, Chrome will run on ICS only. So, you would run Chrome on the phone 'window' on the LapTop. That 'window' can be maximized. Doesn't change the FireFox on Webtop.

    Firefox runs like crap on my 50 buck Bionic lapdock.
    Maybe the ics ota will help. Waiting patiently, cause I'm not much of a developer guy. Easy jailbreaking my daughter's iphone4. Rooting androids sounds like a pain in the butt. Inputting from my bionic phone instead of the lapdock. Much easier.

    I just use the stock (or Boat) browser from the phone, rather than using the installed FF (although I use FF on my PC).

    I agree with bb here. It is super easy to root bionic with moto fail.

    ICS upgrades you to Webtop 3.0, which no longer uses Firefox. It works great with Chrome. You can get it now by flashing one of the ICS leaks, or wait for the OTA. Personally I'm using the .2233 leak with the Lapdock 500 and loving it.

    BTW, you don't have to be rooted to flash one of the ICS leaks.

    So, what exactly are the browser restrictions with Webtop 3.0? I'm mainly interested in Dolphin HD, since it supports LastPass, which I find invaluable. I'll be rooted, BTW.

    Any browser that works on your phone will work on ICS on the lapdock. I've used dolphin, chrome, and the stock browser on the 230 ics leak and all three are decent.
    I also agree that it's very easy and quick to root my bionic, and just as easy to jailbreak my iPhone. Not a pain in the butt by any means.
