Cool Tried it
I tried Chrome, I like the stock browser better. Chrome seemed slower to me.

i love Chrome. seems a ton slicker and faster than any of the other browsers. my old fav was stock, but the tabbing is great and on tiny buttons the magnifying glass is great for hitting the right link.

Chrome is nice but unfortunately adobe confirmed today that they will not be working on flash for the chrome browser at all. Flash is a deal breaker especially for an android device browser.

Why is flash so important for you guys? Most videos are linked through youtube, which will always work, or HTML5. All the flash stuff that I see loaded on my phone is advertisements which make it slow. Ive disabled flash on my phone because I just dont see a use for it.

Not everybody watches YouTube videos. I like to watch my shows at work and other videos from websites that don't use youtube .

Chrome has been great for me. Syncs across my phone, home computer and work computer. I flash a lot of ROMs and I don't have to keep re-saving bookmarks. Love how the google account sends the bookmarks to the stock browser too on ICS.

Also, desktop mode was enabled on the latest update. Just press menu while in the browser and you will see a check box

same issue. Chrome force closes. I have tried clearing the cache data and even reinstalled it couple of times.

I am on 4.0.3 , UCALC4 and sensation rom.
