    Looking for a good browser with tabs and can handle flash.
    I used to run Dolphin, but would like a diff. one.

    Thanks!

    Wow, I use Dolphin and can't imagine a better browser. What about it do you not like? Just curious.

    I read a couple of places that they track, or potentially track, your surfing.

    Anyway, anyone with ideas?
    What's good? xscope? skyfire? opera mini? other?

    I use Dolphin HD and find it to be superb. I used xScope for a long time and it is just about as good (imho). Opera Mini is absolutely terrific if you are a limited data plan as it compresses downloads and seems to really save on data usage. I ran it in order to test it for my daughter and on a 15 minute test of just visiting website after website, it reported I would have downloaded (and I don't remember the exact numbers anymore) 2.17 megs and but only 600kb registered as downloaded. They said it was a saving of 85% in terms of data used.

    Supposedly dolphin has stopped that with the latest update buuuuttt.. If you're rooted download setdns and add en.mywebzines.com that should cure it

    What exactly does that do?
    Does it filter my surfing through mywebzines? or block it?

    Dolphin mini is better for me. It handles message boards better than Dolphin. I have emailed the developers but the mini still works better than any other I have tried on the boards.
