When you visit XDA on your phone...

Tapatalk limits your view/capabilities too much for me, & lets you be even more of a nOOb!

Xda app is bug ridden.

Ad blocking via a host file or a script like PurePerfomance & the like is a MUST on a any browser on xda! I tried Chrome on bone stock ...94 and it was useless! It would freeze up until all the ad crap was done, not to mention the "This is a Trap..." BS.
Yet WITH ad blocking it is the only browser, I know of, that does complete editing on xda!

The newest 4.3.5 is a great departure from this. The history cannot be added the Quick access, has an awkward interface and has a short & poor memory.

Maxthon HD, its legacy is Miren, is my favorite "display" browser.
Stay close to the Quick access / home to keep freezing to an acceptable rate. When a freeze happens just hold your recent apps key (GravityBox) to kill & restart. Quick access is a customizable favorits/home that defaults when you close all tabs.
Best ( mandatory) settings:
Turn everything off including fetch mode.
Txt size: large to ex large.
Web links display: normal
Open links: open in current is a must. Open in new & set as current is a must for file uploads only (moto x no ULs at all).
Zoom: close.
With the proper settings you can toggle to a edit/upload mode and back to the best forum display mode.
Not to be confused with the non tablet version or the Pioneer version which are useless! The pioneer is really very nice & perhaps less buggy than hd, but cut & paste do not work!

Also choose the 2010 style/theme at the lower left.

P M notifications are turned off by default.

Choose user cp > edit options > forum display > linear newest, so you do not have to press that tiny little arrow to get the latest post. I use the forum display changer to go another mode to view the op on a long thread.

I was on my Wife's m to DL this wonderful cam . Her m is unrooted. What a frustrating experience! If I were demo'ing out the same at a vzw store, I would think what a POS!

It limits your view of what is on the forum.
How do you jump to other phone forums? With a browser compact view of forums is easy. I could go on but try Marathon HD. The customizable quick access (their version of favorites) default home page is so handy!
BTW I never use fetch mode. It causes freezing on xda.
