    The new version of Firefox is getting some great reviews.

    Any thoughts on how it compares to the front runners?

    I've yet to find a browser that out-performs the stock ICS browser.

    The only other browser I've really used was Chrome and I switched back to stock because the websites I frequent worked better with stock. When I tried FF awhile back it wasn't bad but it was a resource hog and wasn't all that fast. Chrome is easily the fastest imo, but Stock still has the best browser imo.

    Stock is perfect as far as I'm concerned.

    Stock seems to be smoother, Chrome is still obviously BETA, don't get me wrong, I really enjoyed using chrome when I got my phone but I have been using stock for a good month now. It's right now perfect.

    I've been using ICS Browser +. It's similar to the stock browser but it has a few extra features that the stock ICS browser should have come with. It's pretty fast and lite weight. So far I like it.

    +1 for ICS Browser Plus. Stock browser with the added features to take it over the top. Tried the new Firefox and don't like the toggle for full screen. Need quick access to tabs.

    Chrome + ICS Browser+ here as well. The new Firefox still sucks. I uninstalled it after about 3 minutes.

    Man I am disappointed in FF Mobile :/ I have been using Firefox for so long on PC that I can't use anything else and I love it dearly. I would use it for my phone in a heartbeat, but they need to get it working PROPERLY, or just give up.

    Looks like I need to take a look at ICS Browser +.

    The stock ICS browser on my Nexus has been the best so far for me.
