The new FF beta is cool. I just hate it vibrates whenever I touch a link. Its smooth too.

It's pretty slow for me too. I really enjoy the features it comes with but i keep going back to the stock browser. I'll try out the new Firefox though.

i wanted to like chrome on android because it LOOKS cool and the UI is cool but i found the same. then i realized i hadnt wiped/data in FOREVER and i've even flashed a few ROMs (i know, not the best idea but i'm lazy so i usually see if all hell breaks loose first, which it usually doesnt).

so i did a clean wipe and install of CNA 2.0 and Matrix 19.5 and chrome is now very fast and snappy, i love the tab feature where you can fling one to the side to close it.

Chrome is also slow most of the time on my stock nexus s. I found that opera mini works best and is very very fast (I have did not try Firefox yet). The reason for the speed is that, Opera Mini uses its servers to compress and optimize data and then sends it to your phone - this makes Opera Mini very fast. It also includes tabbed browsing among other features.

I have now also removed Chrome from my Nexus, because it is indeed slow.

I have then tried 5 other browser and for now I decided to go with Dolphin HD browser, which for me is the best compromise between features and speed.
