    Which Browser do you prefer?

    Whether you're running android 4.1 or froyo...what's your favorite browser? I honestly like the look of the ICS browser, but google chrome is way faster.
    ICS Browser+
    Google Chrome

    I'm still on ICS and the web browsers seems to be giving me the most problems...ie mucho lag on rtn to home and slow page loads...esp with chrome.. I just installed Dolphin (non beta) for the first time last night and so far it is very fast and seems to function the best...over stock and chrome...I still don't know all the little tricks you can do in dolphin yet, but it always seem to remember where I scrolled down to when I hit the back button...something chrome didn't always do..ie chrome sometimes rtn me to the top of the page...with brings me to one thing I hate with mobile browsers in all the thumb scrolling with the touch screen...Is there a way to make a gesture or button in the browser to do a "Page Down-Up" function so I don't have to do all that laborious thumb scrolling?

    I just did an intensive 1 hr web workout with Dolphin and my battery went down 12% and the merc got a little warm in the lower right corner...something I've never noticed before and I did get some lag on return to Home but not as bad as chrome....also there are a ton of addons for Dolphin..anyone have the best ones to use? I'm afraid they'll slow it down....also it has the ability to sync with my google dashboard bookmarks that I have for my laptops with over a 1000 bookmarks...I don't think I want to do that as that would surely muddle it up....no?

    When I had trouble signing in at wifi locations with the default browser, I poked around for a new one and started using this one:


    Skyfire for Android

    Never heard of Skyfire...looks somewhat ok but it seems to be fairly hard-core integrated with Facecrook and Twitter which would be a big no go for me as I am anti-facebook and avoid them like the plague...can you disable all the facebook spam?

    You make it sound like there are lots of other options.

    I found a setting in Dolphin that allows you to page up page/down using the volume rocker, sweet!

    Is it safe to uninstall the system browser if chrome is also a system app that's integrated in the OS?
