    What's everyone's opinion on the stock ICS browser vs. a third party browser like Dolphin HD or Skyfire? Speed, interface, etc.

    I have always been a fan of Dolphin HD because it was faster, but since the new update i think the stock browser works very good too.

    I like Dolphin HD as well over others. I have recently installed the new .215 leak which comes with Chrome, so I have been giving Chrome a shot the last few days. Its really good but I would like more options for it like Dolphin HD has.

    I too have been using Chrome now since the .215 leak and like it over the stock browser. Two things I miss about the stock are the home screen option and the ability to actually hit Exit from the menu to close out.

    Now I just close all my tabs and back out, so not too much more work.

    I have always stuck with the stock browser on all of my devices. Tried others but always come back to stock. But I am using ICS Browser+ right now. It just improves on the stock ICS browser by adding gestures and quick control ring customization among a few other small changes.

    The stock browser is the same, but they added Google Chrome which I like better.

    I figured it out sometimes I move a little slow but now CHROME is my default. This really is a great device!

    I used Dolphin HD for two years and really enjoyed it, but happen to stumble across ICS Browser+ in another thread on here and love it! The Quick Control Rings are very nice, so be sure to enable them!

    mine was in my apps, it didnt pop up on the screen or replace the stock browser, so you probably will find it in there

    Same thing here. I've been using ICS Browser+ exclusively since switching from Dolphin HD. I like it better than Chrome, too. The customizable quick control rings are great. I love the gestures, too, so I can swipe right to go forward and swipe left to go back.
