BTW I'm working on ICS Browser + , also based on the original ICS Browser code. It has some nice additional features like extended quick controls , UA settings, auto reflow after pinch to zoom etc.

It seems to work pretty good on the One X.

Open for suggestions.

Market link https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ft.browserplus (free)

The problem is they appear randomly when scrolling. A small transparent button at the lower corner to bring up the tabs and address menu would be much better. A bigger problem is the delay between finger movement and when screen starts to scroll. As you can see from the video it sometimes responds only by the time user slid his finger all the way down the screen. Quick controls can be tricky and annoying to use. The way Dolphin browser use the menu button to exit fullscreen and show all tabs and address bar is the fastest and most intuitive IMO.

The One X thoroughly destroys the One S in benchmarks but curiously always slower in general operations like opening apps and rendering a webpage.

I absolutely love it.

Indeed, there is absolutely no problem with the stock browser of the One X at all. (Got the device myself too)

Guys, below is the sight of the stock Browser glitch. Top left corner. Will upload a short video later.



http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=

EDIT:video uploaded

Look closely on the 1 second and 23 second mark of the video, the glitch happened there.

Doesn't happen on other browsers though, only in stock browser the glitch is happening randomly.

Anyways, there are so many other browsers to use, chrome and dolphin are good though dolphin at the moment got the menu bar at the bottom.

Happens on chrome too. Just tested it. Out of three device two of them have the glitch one of them is perfect with no glitch whatsoever. This is a widespread hardware issue that is not consistent between samples. Tegra 3 manufacturing problem?

I do have a problem with the One X browser. You zoom in, and it hangs and does a weird glitchy thing then it's ok. Zooming out does the same too, it hangs for a split second then shows you the full view.

also found no problem in the browser it was very smooth, smoothest stock browser ever

let's hope nativestranger is wrong and there are no bad tegra3s allowed out of foundry...this is the most worrying since an update can not fix this

strangely AP33 is supposed to be a revision, remember this?

Have you tried zooming in and out of theverge.com? Load the full site, then double tap zoom in and back out.
