I started using firefox on both my milestone 2 and XOOM mz601 and I find it performs quite well on both, its really snappy and browsing is really smooth. Even sites like codeacademy work really well.

I usually use Opera Mobile, because it's my standard desktop browser and I can easily get my favorites by syncing via Opera Link.
Normally I'm not a real fan of commercial closed-source software, but Opera made my day pretty often

I´ve always used Dolphin Browser. However, I think the stock one works a bit faster.

Never tried webkit nor miren browser, though.

I use stock browser because it has a better speed than opera and on the stock the flash player is working fine.
I need try the dolphin browser,maybe it's better.

I tested them all. It seems that only "Opera Mobile" is hardware accelerated because it's the smoooothest among the rest. But I voted for Dolphin because of the better interface design.

For me the best browser is the Dolphin HD.

svg rendering and image quality is not 100% in Opera Mobile. QQ browser is the best for any Android phone but has no bookmark backup or cloud option. Firefox has wap and mobile site page fix problem. Miren browser is not a full fledged stand alone browser, it works on stock browser. Dolphin also has a few bugs. UCmobile gets freezed or FC after multiple tabs open. Boat browser is somewhat true android experience and friendly with not so much data compression. Boat browser handles payment gateways and java scripts well. Maxthon browser is also quite sturdy and reliable to use. Puffin browser is an excellent browser with full page performance but starts with the homepage with new window or tab. Ninesky browser too is very descriptive but has noticable bugs.

Normally a browser's credit is noticed while loading a media rich heavy website and when multiple tabs are open upto 10.

My preferences:-
Boat browser
Maxthon Browser

Firefox is the best because it runs perfectly the VCAR website.

Vcar is 14 years old telepresence robot, it uses custom built hardware & software to allow you to control it)

I always used the Opera browser on my Milestone and Milestone 2 phone.
On PUCRS, the standard and the Firefox browser simply can't pass the login check to access their wi-fi... =/

obs.: After that I and a friend developed a java program to login without any browser, it's faster and doesn't affect all the tabs you have in your browser.
The result was the college didn't accept our program (developed to android, and PCs -Java) because they are so proud and they do not like to thanks their students for help...
By the way, the program is PUCRS Portal Login
