Shouldn't use dolphin. They have some serious privacy violations with all their apps. I recommend Firefox, Chrome, Opera or Naked Browser. Chrome does suck though IMO.

After clearing cache and app datas, Chrome run like brand new again thou for less then 10 over web pages. It begin to rear it's ugly head again...

Looks like just have to wait for the next 4.4.3 again before I'm going back to Chrome... sigh.

Chrome has been my go-to browser since the galaxy nexus days, never had a problem. It's the only browser I'll use. JMO

Yup Chrome performed wonderfully on my 2 yrs old Gnex with 4.3, maybe the codes are not yet fully optimised for 4.4... bummer.

I think Dolphin's security exploit had been fixed after ver 7

check out their blog...

You really trust the people at Dolphin. Its up to you guys. I personally don't like handing over my private data to some untrustworthy company in another country. Check the privacy thread out. Dolphin Zero still has privacy issues too.

I think Firefox supports flash and you can always sideload it too.
