    +1 to this... I normally use Dolphin HD, but this has some nice features in it...

    I'm partial to Dolphin HD. It has a ton of add-ons such as user agent and convert to pdf, I love how it handles tabs, and the bookmarks are much easier to get to than the stock browser. Tried the stock browser after hearing of some of the enhancements, just don't like how it handles tabs and bookmarks.

    Has your phone slowed down with this browser?

    I had to try this since Dezymond said he might :D Not bad the quick quick controls and volume scroll... i rhyme :biggrin:

    Actually discovered while giving this browser a try that if you drag a new icon into the dock it creates a folder... folders folders everywhere :D Pretty nice now I have both browsers stock and ICS browser + quickly available in the dock with ICS browser + defaulting to desktop mode only for all sites.

    I'm in with ICS Browser+ too - the extended quick controls and UA string put it on another level :)
