For the record, I use Chrome all the way.

But why don't you just use a proper survey? It's hard to track all the responses in a forum format.

I made one for this forum in Survey Monkey only to find out that I don't have enough posts for an external hyperlink. Maybe in a few days I'll have enough.

Edit: I also found out some answer in this forum as to how to do it within xda-developers.

BOAT
I posted this in Boat's forum here on XDA and they never responded...
Comment on this analysis of Boat: http://mobilesandbox.org/xml_report_static/?q=351712
0. Why is Boat reading contacts?
1. Why is Boat reading data logs?
2. Why is Boat reading last known location?
3. Why is Boat reading the subscriber and device IDs?
4. Why is Boat encrypting and phoning home data?
5. What about all of the other garbage brought to light by that analysis?

android.permission.READ_LOGS [basically no app should have this]
android.permission.RECEIVE_BOOT_COMPLETED [why is your browser starting on boot?]
android.permission.READ_CONTACTS [you want your browser to read your contacts?]
android.permission.RECORD_AUDIO [you want your browser to record audio?]
android/telephony/TelephonyManager;->getDeviceId [to identify you]
getSubscriberId [to identify you]
Execution of external commands [very scary]
Cipher(AES/ECB/PKCS5PADDING) [now they encrypt data]
Cipher(DES/CBC/PKCS5Padding) [they learned not to send it in plain text]
Cipher(RSA/ECB/PKCS1Padding) [encrypted so we cannot know what they collect]
HttpPost [and phoning home]

UC BROWSER
Just look at the permissions. Garbage!

MAXTHON / NEXT BROWSER / ONE BROWSER / ALMOST EVERY ANDROID BROWSER
==> Invade privacy and waste battery / power bandwidth / CPU cycles in the process.

Naked browser Pro. Beats everything. Sure the UI looks awful but is not important.
Easy access to bookmarks is my requirement number one, and this has it.
Totally bloat free too at only 201kb. Requires no permissions.

Firefox trashes the competition in my opinion. Love the ui, doesn't kill my battery though.

Smack that Thanks button if I helped!
KitKat came in on my OmniROM, running on my Note 2.
Sent from a small country called Singapore.
P.S. Time for school, not much time for XDA :(
