I've been a fan of Opera for a while, but agree their last release slogged up.

I use Chrome on my GS3. You have to be on ISC or better to run it. If you still are on an older OS, give Dolphin a try.

Used Opera, mostly, on my droid DX.
Recently swapped to a Razr M. It came with Chrome. I gave it a go, for a while. Couldn't figure out how to change the home page and some other things bothered me.
Went back to Opera.

I use FireFox on the desktop, but the Android version sucks.
I use Opera on my older Droid X. It doesn't run the newer versions of Android so can't try Chrome, but I like Opera pretty well.

Dolphin Mini Browser works great.

Chrome, it has the added bonus of syncing bookmarks with your desktop chrome browser.

I also like using Chrome to phone on my pc. It allows you to send your webpage from your desktop to your phone.

I use the AOSP browser because it works well with Flash. I know everybody is pushing HTML 5, but there is still a lot of Flash sites out there and until the sites get updated I've got to have a way to access them.

I am using Chrome on my Nexus 7. Very fast and stable. I am pretty happy so far.

Opera ran like pig. Didn't like their bookmark menu either.

I run Dolphin with adblock and screen toggle and Firefox.

I mostly use Dolphin but a couple sites from work (outlook) run better on Firefox.

I run two browsers. I use the stock browser for sites that work well with mobile browsers and I configure Opera to desktop mode for everything else.

I run Chrome and Firefox Beta on my Nexus 7 with the Flash apk for flash content.

I run the native Android browser and Firefox Beta with the Flash apk on my Galaxy Nexus. Not a big fan of Chrome on the phone but I like it for my tablet.

Yep. This single feature trumps all the others, for me, since I use a laptop running Chrome (and all the Google goodies), a Motorola Xoom tablet, and a Samsung Galaxy S3 phone.

I ran Dolphin browser on my older Galaxy S. I recently got a Motorola Electrify M which has Chrome pre-installed and it is just as good, if not better than Chrome on a PC.

I'm using Chrome, but have heard good things about Dolphin. I'll try it out and see if it improves user experience noticeably (not that I knew I was missing out on anything, but I guess I'll find out). Thanks for posting this!

I like this ability on Chrome. I'll try out Dolphin on my tablet, and if it's better than Chrome, I'll try this too:

I was using the default browser on my Thrive, until it became unreliable. Now it's Chrome. No problems at all, which is odd since I had tons of problems with Chrome on my PC.

Chrome primary, Firefox for websites that don't like chrome.

One thing about chrome that annoys me is the swipe to switch tabs. I'm always switching tabs by accident when I try to scroll left or right.

Same here. I also use Chrome at home and it syncs bookmarks and history. I dig it.
