I like Dolphin Browser.
i like skyfire
I have both Dolphin and Skyfire.....and haven't decided which I like better. They are both good.
I like Skyfire
Jumping on the skyfire bandwagon here. Mostly for the video support to cover lack of flash.
Both seem nice to me, but Skyfire seems to rely on the default browser, Dolphin does not. Since I removed the stock web browser my only choice is Dolphin.
This^^^ I love sliding of the page to see the bookmarks.
I have tried both Skyfire, not bad and Dolphin for the first time and not bad either. Once we get 2.2 there is nothing better than the stock browser IMO.
I just installed Xscope, I had this on my Driod X before the 2.2 upgrade and had the paid version. I worked fairly good. So far I am very happy with in on the s7.
100% agree, I will go back to stock browser when ( not if ) a newer os comes out.
opera is the only one that lets you download from rapidshare right
so you can goto UploadCity Helps You to Search Shared Files On the Web seach for cbr and get free comic books
I wish Firefox beta would work on the S7. I have it on my Evo and it works awesome. The sync works with my laptop so I have all of my bookmarks and history with me where ever I go.
Hi, quick into, I have a HTC Hero, and I am considering a S7, so no direct experience of using browsers on a tablet.
I have been developing a web site that specifically requires that the browser should use local storage and work offline.
I tested my web app on my HTC Hero and learnt quite a lot about Android browsers
I found that there are 2 types of browsers - the traditional type that send requests to the web server and get responses back direct, then there are the "tethered" browsers,these do not talk to the world,they talk to a single proxy server that then downloads and caches your page, they also re-format desktop pages into a phone friendly format. both the Dolphin and Opera droid browsers are tethered, I think the Safari Iphone browser may also work this may.
This tethering has some implications both positive and negative.
quicker especially if you visit popular sites that are not optimised for droids
Mr Dolphin knows about every site you visit, they will doubtless be selling your ip address to advertisers etc
Offline caching does not work, as your browser does not recognise that cached files match the web sites "please cache" list
I also found that some of the browsers do not even work with local storage - in particular the new Opera browser.
A further niggle with the Dophin browser ( even in paid mode ) it goes and plants all sorts of unwanted junk in your book marks and makes it difficult to get the stuff back out again.
So to summarise
The default android webkit browser works fine but does not work offline - it does seem to caache files, but does not seem to know about cache manifests
Dolphin is a great browser - very fast but can not work with sites designed to work offline- I also don't like it knowing all my business
Opera Beta - again it's a nosey blighter and as yet does not support local storage
Skyfire - nice to use easy to access and edit bookmarks and works with my web site
I also tested a number of other browsers, none came close to the droid default, Dolphin or Skyfire browsers
In conclusion then my vote is for Skyfire - which also happens to be one of the top apps in the Apple app store
First post...very useful post...thanks a lot
Has anyone found out how to close tabs on the Skyfire 3.0 tabs list?

I've tried all ways without success!
It won't let me answer a post with a quote either.
