Why are Android web browsers so terrible?!
I love android but I hate the browsers for it. I have a Galaxy s2 running on ICS. half of its ram is always available. IThe phone itself is never slow or anything, and I only have 3 apps running at the same time max, so I know its the browsers.
Ok. Why are the browsers for Android so bad? The only good browsers is the stock browser and opera mini. Stock is faster than Chrome, Dolphin, Firefox, and all the others. I find it weird how stock browser is faster than Chrome, considering that on PC it has no competition for speed.
ALL of the other browsers scrolling and pinch to zoom are slow and laggy compared to stock and Opera mini. Why? Opera mini's UI and scrolling is instant, why are none of the other android browsers have a fast and instant UI? The stock browser comes in second but it isn't instant like Mini. They all take a second in the UI and some of them have laggy scrolling. Why are they like this? My phone is fast and has lots of free ram. Is it just Android in general? Because iOS is closed and optimized and have none of these issues while web browsing.
