Well, Chrome lags. Dont know if its a hardware fault (i seriously doubt it) or just the browser's fault, but it just lags. Even the default browser on my HTC Sensation feels a lot more smoother.

Is there any other good browser which doesnt lags?

Firefox, Opera, Opera Mini

You can't go wrong with the major ones
But Dolphin is also good.


Quite a few, all up to you :thumbup:

I was a Dolphin user for a couple of years. It's a good browser, and recently I switched to Firefox. A few months ago Firefox was quite terrible bit it has really matured a lot.

I've been using Boat Browser along side Chrome - its nice and quick. Not sure why I haven't made it my default browser yet LOL. I do agree that Chrome is significantly slower than most third party replacements.

I use smooth Rom which upon install with aroma asks what browser you want to install. I chose the stock android browser because I chrome is pretty laggy and it works a charm xD. You don't get all the functionality of chrome, but it adds up to be a much more pleasant experience.

I've been using Boat more and more. All I really care about is how well a browser renders and scales a page since I'm almost always in portrait mode.

Most important to me in a browser is text reflow.
I don't get that on my note with dolphin so i use Opera mobile & Maxthon mobile (by far the fastest browser I've ever found) both give Reflow on my note.
*Maxthon is a good simple browser with some well thought out settings options & one touch full screen button.

Dolphin is trying to be everything while neglecting its basic purpose in my opinion.
