    What Browser do you guys use? I like Opera Mini because it usually open up regular Pages and not Pages made for Cell phones. Is there any other Browsers you recommend? Please let me know!!!

    Dolphin HD with user agent set to Desktop/Computer, uncheck "Open pages in overview".

    Opera mini is cool because it is LIGHTNING FAST and allows uploads, unlike other browsers. It also works when other browsers might fail because it doesn't use webkit to render pages.

    I have every browser installed. xScope is another good one.

    I use the stock browser. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. :tongue: I did install Fennec, but I found it buggy, slow, and it force closed often.

    You make a good point, I've just been fairly hesitant to change browsers. I may check out a couple of the ones you mentioned, though.

    Like I said, I have them all installed and I'm constantly in search of the best browser because that's what I do the most on my phone.

    It is a little scary using non-stock browsers because you have to really trust any app that you put passwords into. In fact, if I were to do anything sensitive--like do online banking--I would choose the stock browser. Still, I think we can trust the makers of Dolphin and xScope. There are definitely security experts sniffing around to see if these apps are doing anything fishy.

    +1 for DolphinHD. I love this browser. It's faster than most give it credit for and it renders very nicely.

    I think the stock is slower than my droid 1 stock. I hope it gets better on 2.2

    I use Opera Mini. It's the quickest browser I've used so far and of course multiple tabs are a nice feature. I tried Skyfire but found that the flash videos actually did not work well at all. This was the only reason I downloaded it and the only reason I would use it; not a fan of the way it looks. Maybe it has added support for the DX now, I'm not sure. But at the time I used it, flash was very flaky and only worked when it wanted to.

    Dolphin HD has some nice features to it, such as the bookmarks and tabs, and a good, clean look to it. But Opera Mini beats it in speed, IMO, so I got rid of Dolphin.
