    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!

    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.
