    Cause I wanted to find out which browser was fastest. So I tested it with this site [http:// and all]

    These were my times for the select browser I tested it on [WITH Verizon 4G]
    Firefox: 21 Seconds
    Skyfire Browser: 29 Seconds
    Maxthon Browser: 30 Seconds
    Boat Browser: 33 Seconds
    Stock Browser: 36 Seconds
    Dolphin Browser HD: 37 Seconds
    Opera Browser: 51 Seconds
    Opera Mini Browser: 51 Seconds



    All the browser were freshly installed and the stock browser was reset so as it was never used. Any other browsers that you guys think can beat Firefox's speed?

    Forgot to say that I was using 4G for this.

    Update: Tomorrow I'll be doing it with my Home Wifi which is alot faster [50mpbs Download, 8Mpbs Upload] to see if maybe my signal strength with Verizon is the problem.

    Home WiFi Router Test


    Opera Browser: 21 Seconds
    Skyfire Browser: 22 Seconds
    Firefox Browser: 23 Seconds
    Dolphin Browser HD: 23 Seconds
    Stock Browser: 24 Seconds
    Boat Browser: 25 Seconds
    Maxthon Browser: 28 Seconds

    I wasn't that impressed with Firefox itself on my Bionic. I guess I can try it again.

    Did you try Opera Mini? So far that's the fastest browser I've used. I use it for everyday casual browsing and then if I need a richer web experience then I go with Dolphin HD.

    Updated. And like I said, I'll be using my Home Router Wifi to see if the speeds change with the browsers. My signal strength in my room to connect with 4G is -86 decibels so maybe with a faster closer connection, we will see a clear cut winner

    Glad to see you used wifi too. Verizon 4G is such a variable at this point.

    That being said, i liked opera but the stock browser seems to be the least crash prone browser I've tried so far.

    I've used Dolphin for at least a year now and still love it. I can handle waiting a few more seconds, it's all the plugins and easy UI that keeps me around. Very cool thread though, good to know.

    I've also heard the brand newest version of Firefox, that was just released a week or two ago, is actually pretty solid. Anyone?

    I thought the "general" consensus was that dolphin and opera were the best/fastest. That's why I switch between those two. I thought firefox didn't support flash? My info is 6-12 months old. Have things changed?

    To me for speed and function dolphin mini is the best browser by far. I have tried several different browsers and always come back to it.

    I find FireFox boots up slow. Opera doesn't load pages properly for me. Dolphin I hated the bookmarks.

    Sent from someplace, and with something that you need not worry about.

    Although not touted much here, I find Boat Browser to be the best from the perspectives of stability, performance and usability. Prior to Boat, I was a fan of both the stock browser and Opera.

    I know this thread is about speed of different browsers, but here are some tricks to speed things up. In browser settings change plugins to "on demand" and turn off java script. Kills most ads and speeds up pages loading considerably. Sometimes I have to turn java back on to get part of a webpage to work that I need to use. Make surfing the web bearable on 3G.
