    On my Nexus 7 running JB 4.1.1, I have:
    Chrome v18 - 45MB (stock for JB)
    Firefox v15 - 20MB
    Dolphin v8 - 8MB

    My favorite is still Dolphin, which is the most compact and supports Flash (which Chrome doesn't).

    I agree with these choices. On my 10 inch Acer A500 and Galaxy Tab 7 Plus the stock browser is so much better after the update to ICS, so I use that a little more than I used to when it crashed a lot on Honeycomb. I mostly use Dolphin, and I tried Firefox but wasn't very satisfied with it until this last update today. It wasn't working at all until I uninstalled it and reinstalled and now it's faster (so far). I was only using it for one website with small text so I could pinch and zoom with it because the other two wouldn't zoom on that site for some reason. I might use it more now, but my "go to" browser is still Dolphin.

    A little off-topic since I am now comparing Windows PC Browsers, but doing chrome://memory-redirect/ in a Google Chrome browser brings up the following:

    Is MS IE v8.0 really the browser with the smallest footprint??

    I still find Opera Mobile to be the most reliable browser to date for Android. Maybe not the most flexible but it is fast and predictable.
