    Dolphin is failing as a browser! Went from nearly perfect to nearly failing. Any ideas for a different one?

    I was going to come here to suggest using Dolphin, haha. How is it failing? It works perfectly for me.

    I can't turn off/ on as default; bookmarks have to be imported to stock browser, to be used in shortcut apps; bookmarks no longer have bulk move/ delete option. All of these are changes recently. Dev doesn't seem to understand, as though they're clerks, not techs. It's still the best, so I'm stuck!

    Thanks, anyway! We need a shortcut for "and I mean that sincerely." aimts?

    I used to only use Dolphin but when they started "updating" with all of the extras it became very buggy and seemed to crash often. Read about ICS+ on here and have fell in love with it over the past month or so.

    Agreed re Dolphin. But, many still love it. I don't see ICS+ in Play Store. Thanks.

    Sounds like GoSMS Pro, they've added so many new features and now it's getting to be a battery and resource hog.

    I have been using Maxthon for a few months now and really like it. You download out to your home PC. Set it up with your favorites and out does the same on your phone.

    We don't have a computer! We're some of those who do everything but cook with our phone.

    I do appreciate you taking the time to reply.

    What could be the benefits of using a different browser than the stock goggle app?

    Try Spearment. Very fast, and many useful tools.
