Haven't found AOSP browser yet, but for now I'm sticking with HoloWeb. I really like the synchronisation and the interface with chrome but the performance just isnt't there (yet)...

And by the way: Got 790ms in sunspider with HoloWeb

That happened to me a few times also, but I did it first with Browser 4.1 apk, and then copied 4.2 apk, rebooting also helped...

Holoweb browser is very similar to ASOP, and it works also very well and flash is supported...

This method working on my n10.

You need to rename the two browser proxy files as well.

Slide83 asked if I knew of a way of getting AOSP browser working on the Nexus 10, this a method that has worked for me before.

> Must be rooted.

> Copy the browser.apk into the system/app folder

> With a root file explorer change the file permissions of the browser.apk to -rw-rw-r (you will see this represented as 664) If you don't do this, it won't install.

> You must rename the BrowserProviderProxy.apk & BrowserProviderProxy.odex otherwise the browser will force close, just add a 1 to the name e.g. 1BrowserProviderProxy.apk1 Do not delete them, if you still want to OTA update Android. Android checks for any changes to the system/app folder before performing an OTA, so you will have to delete the browser.apk and rename the two file back to stock, when it is OTA time.

Any Nexus 10 owner that gets AOSP browser 4.2 working, please post Sunspider, Geekbench and Google Octane scores! (please)

I have installed BOAT BROWSER in my Nexus 7, and I can tell that it is so far THE BEST AND MOST STABLE BROWSER that I have ever encountered...

It does support flash, and it is better than AOSP...

Looks very pretty on my Nexus 7 , and I have set BOAT BROWSER as my default browser.

I have installed DOLPHIN as well and it is also very good and pretty in the Nexus 7....
