    I installed chrome and its very good, but chrome does not have any flash support so if flash is a must for you I suggest sticking with the stock browser or download dolphin.

    The new stock browser also imports bookmarks. Chrome has better tab support and navigation with swiping and more. If you surf the web on your phone Chrome (no flash) or Dolphin (flash) will be better for you. If you simply go to the Web to look at something and then exit; like I do. Then the stock browser should be enough. why add software to the phone.

    BTW. don't decide based on flash. That is rapidly dying technology. Google, Apple, Microsoft even Adobe has abandoned it.

    Use chrome for the easy bookmark sync to the PC.

    Chrome is awesome. Stock is the best browser I have yet to use on a mobile phone. I love chrome but stock is slightly smoother. Chrome's tabs and swiping is definitely better.

    I used Dolphin HD beta for a bit and I'd have to admit that Its faster than chrome. But!!!! Chrome gives you a more desktop browser by some of the little things it does. A lot of of times dolphin wouldn't let me insert text in certain fields on websites which irked me. Chrome on the other hand does. I love it. About stock though I rarely use stock browser. I should give ICS browser a shot. Its great on tablets though.

    Chrome is much better at HTML5, as the stock browser scores 280 +3 bonus points. Chrome scores 369 +11 bonus points. I am talking about the test at html5test.com

    Tried them all with the exception of the stock ics browser.

    I keep going back to dolphin for a mobile browser.

    I've never seen what's so awesome about chrome. On my laptop I use firefox over chrome every time.

    I think that Chrome is better than the Google made stock browser because Chrome is made by Google. :dry:
