    I was just curious what everyone uses as a web browser? I would like to try out some other ones. Right now I use Dolphin Browser. I really like the tabbed browsing, that isnt offered in the default browser and pinch zoom. I dont use the gestures too often, except to close the browser.

    What is your preferred browser?

    i use stock, if I ever feel like using another browser it is Chrome.

    Stock browser has pinch zoom.

    Yeah... Pretty sure it's only for ICS & Jelly Bean. Definitely a lot faster than the stock browser I was used to using on the OG Droid.

    I used to use dolphin browser until I moved to ICS. Now it is chrome all the way. I love the ability to to sync my desktop bookmarks to my phone and tablet. Also, if I have a webpage open on my laptop, if I have to leave, it will sync with my phone and I can read it on the go.

    Whoa, I was not aware of that. I think I may have to give chrome a second chance. What about opening webpages in desktop mode instead of mobile mode? It is one of the reasons I didn't like using chrome because so many of the sites default to mobile even though I have it set to default to desktop.

    I was using the stock browser for ICS and I liked it. I recently started using Chrome because I like that it syncs with my laptop automatically. I haven't had any problems with it so far.
