    Welcome to the forum. What is your Android device?

    Installing a new browser on an Android Nexus 7 Tablet is very quick, simple and also easily removed.

    I have tried many and mostly use standard Chrome also Boat because the latter default font and or layout is better for some web pages.

    What browsers have you tried?

    I installed various browsers but at the end of the day, I use the one that came by default... basically because the icon is in the very first screen and I've been too lazy to remove it!

    I guess that, while I do have those browsers installed and use them from time to time (basically, to make sure that a website looks fine in any of them in my mobile), I'm not the best person to give an opinion about this particular topic

    I kind of bounce around between the default browser, Chrome, and Opera. Since I don't really use my android devices as my primary computing devices, I haven't really set things up to any serious degree.

    If Chrome added a Home button it would be ace. I still use it over the others though.

    Personally I prefer Dolphin. It excels in speed and versatility over Chrome and Firefox.

    In my opinion:

    Opera is the best browser for android because of its speed,

    Dolphin is good for its feature set.

    Chrome is the best all-rounder browser that is why it is my favorite one. Although chrome is a unbeatable desktop browser but it is comparatively slower than Opera and Dolphin while using on Android.

    I suggest you to use Opera , I am currently using it as well as firefox and for me opera is a better option when it comes to using a browser on an android device.
