    I honestly don't really use any other browser than the stock browser, however; I have tried some others and found two that have some pretty cool features were the Opera Mini browser and the Dolphin browser.

    It all really comes down to what you like but you might find some more variety in one of those two.

    You could try skyfire, It has a flash movie player built in.

    We use Opera to upload attachments to emails. (AndFtp for ftp though)
    We use Dolphin for the rest because we like the user interface.

    Dolphin HD is way too heavy so it's kind of slow if you don't need all the features. Use Dolphin Mini instead if you just want the gestures.

    But of all I've tried I think the best is Miren Browser. Miren has a real cache implementation. If you click "Back" you get your page immediately in nanoseconds. Every other browser when you hit "Back" it seems the page is reloaded again. I really hate that.

    You all guys should give Miren a try. I think it's pretty fast and has an excellent renderer.

    Skyfire even stinks on the iPad, where it claimed to play Flash video. I think the app needs more work!

    I do not like skyfire. It is way to slow on my tablet. I use the stock one with adobe flash player 10.1 off of tipstir's package, and it works great

    Skyfire is to heavy and doesn't see my web server. DHD is fast under my latest ROM.

    Hi, I would propose something different, Maxthon, this is a browser I'm using in my pc's and laptop's for many years.
    It saves your favorites in the cloud, so you have it available no matter where you are.
    I just found they have created an android version a couple days ago once updating my desktop browser.

    Additionally it is really fast.

    I just downloaded Dolphin Browser Hd and i love it! What i like most is when u load a webpage, it shows u the full screen in portrait mode, and then u have to zoom to see everything else closer. I hate when other browsers dont do that. I like to see the whole screen, then zoom where needed, not scroll then zoom. Mayb thats just my opinion, but thats what i like and im going to stay with it. And another thing i like is that the tabs are right at the top of the page and u dont have to go to another page to see them.

    I use Android browser, which is very good in surfing the web and subscribing to RSS (Really Simple Syndication) feeds of various news websites and blogs. It supports diverse types and has a bevy of themes to choose from, every day you can switch your phone theme to your mood and the browser would change too.

    I retried the Dolphin 4 from Skyfire on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 very impressed. Has excellent bookmarking you can set folders. Pages load fast and move up and down very smooth. I made it my default and rate it 5 stars. My opinion Dolphin beats them all.
