Are there any available that might be better than the one already installed? Any that can read gif and animated files?

From what i understand there are a few (2-3) browsers on the Android Market, i've read mixed reviews on them but in the end overall it seems the default browser is better.

IMO if you can wait a little bit, Firefox Mobile aka Fennec is in development and should be released in a few weeks or so to try out.

Personally...

I'd recommend sticking with the default/Google browser.

It's fast, efficient, and functional.​

Tell them and they will build it

there are several people on this forum that work for google and motorola if we make browser suggestion they will look at them and will most likely put them in an ota patch or in a download upgrade on the market

I agree the def app works good, but does that dolphin app play animated images and gifs? Is it as fast as the default app?

That's not a good attitude for open development platforms...

the "It's good enough" attitude never gets us anywhere. I'm looking forward to the Mozilla browser as well as perhaps skyfire, and others to see what else may be fastER, MORE efficient and HIGHER functionality.

Firefox is Coming to Android

Yeah, I most definitely cannot wait for Fennec to hit the Android system. I mean come on, all the goodness of Firefox in the palm of your hand? Add-ons, download manager, tabbed browsing? I realize that tabbed browsing isn't a Firefox-specific idea (anymore), but let's face it: Firefox just does it better than everyone else.

I'm playing with Dolphin now, like the pinch zoom and gesture based controls, however I used FF on my pc and look forward to playing with it too (now if it has multi touch I'm on cloud 9).
