    Did a search thru forum not much there I did see one short thread. I tried opera but it seemed cluncky but I liked it could see the external sd card for downloads something the vtabs browser does not. Is there a clean/fast browser that can choose the external sd card for downloads?

    Thanks Jim

    Sorry if I missed a more detailed post.

    I've tried several browsers on both my tablet and phone (HTC Incredible) and always come back to Dolphin HD.

    Opera IS chunky!
    So far dolphin seems to work the best, though I'm open to find a better one at any time.

    I like dolphin mini and regular dolphin. Hate opera with the huge nav buttons taking up quarter of screen. How about some small buttons.

    Then perhaps not quoting it would be wise?

    I reported it earlier. Looks like the site took action, as, other than the part you quoted, it's gone.

    As dolphin HD was found to be acting malicious (privacy concerns), i tested a lot of browsers, boat browser is the first browser i kkeept more than 5 min on my devices, an istart to like it,it is a little different in terms of usage, but has a usable interface and is fast and feature rich.

    Thanks guys so far i've been trying them out. I can't seem to get used to any of them but I chalk that with my inexperience with android. I will give boat a look many thanks all. Oh in another thread I saw about es file explorer very nice program it let me move several downloaded files to my sd card and delete some left over junk from programs I deleted.

    Great forum for an android newbie Jim!

    100% AGREE. BOAT browser is amazing. I also have Dolphin HD installed, but BOAT is my go-to browser on my Vtab and my SGSII.

    I'm loving the Dolphin browser - especially the self made gesture function. I wasn't happy with any of the email apps, so I'm using the Dolphin landing screen and made gestures for my yahoo and gmail accounts.

    Way better than the stock browser and email apps. Is there any way to get rid of those to free up some memory?
