Default Browser

Is it just me or does the ICS browser suck?

I installed chrome, but it has the same issue where it takes awhile for it to be responsive.

ICS+ browser is a bit better, but not leaps and bounds.

Dolphin is ok, certainly better than above. Still doesn't feel very responsive or fluid though.

Is there any decent tablet browser available?

I'm having no love with the browser. Feels like browsing on a 56k modem using some ancient linux distro. I tried all of them, with Maxthon being the fastest. Unfortunately Maxthon became unstable within a day.

The browser is turning into a dealbreaker. Maybe my expectations were too high.

From what i've read, the browser is handled using the Tegra 3's "companion core."
Because it's clocked at such a slow speed, it has some lag.

I have been using Dolphin on both my TF300 and TF101. I really can't tell any difference in the time is takes to load a page on both tablets.
I have tried other browsers but keep coming back to Dolphin.

i just miss not having no-script and adblock. firefox does have adblock for their mobile browser but firefox runs so slow on this tablet for me.

Totally disappointing experience. Browsing is a nightmare on my tf300t device. it's slightly better than tegra 2 devices (acer a500 and asus tf100), however still not ready for prime time.

Why? Do you think this will improve through updates?
