I Just Want a Browser Which Does The Basics Well

For me, a Browser needs to support Flash, have a good speed dialer(which can be set as the home page), a good bookmarks manager, a good password manager and if it is fast as well then I'm happy.

Other than the Boat browser, I'm finding it quite difficult to find many browsers which meet these basic requirements.

The well known browsers like Chrome, Dolphin, Opera etc. have all abandoned Flash or don't have built-in password managers or lack good speed dialers which can be set as the home page.

The only other browser that I've found which almost meets my criteria is the Maxthon browser, but that does not have a password manager.

I use Keepass as a backup in case my Boat passwords get lost and that can be used to copy and paste login details to browsers. But for some reason it does not work with the Maxthon browser.

Are there any other browsers besides Boat which does the basics well?

Thanks for your suggestions. But I really need a browser that includes a password manager because I have a lot of passwords and the Boat browser seems to be the only browser which includes a good free password manager.

+1 Boat browser. You need to enable Flash support in settings after you install it.
