1 choice- Chrome because I feel its smooth and its tabs are easy to use.

2 choice- ICS stock browser because I can see desktop like pages because of avaibility of flash.

im confused by what stock ICS browser means in this article. i say this because i own both a galaxy nexus and a gsiii and the built in browsers are different on the two phones. i use chrome though as my daily driver because the UI is pretty awesome and i like having all my history and bookmarks synced between my ipad, laptop, etc.

Speed is not that important to me. My main complaint with most of mobile browsers is the lack of on demand text reflow, that is one the reasons I prefer Opera Mobile, besides Opera uses its own engine to render pages not the stock one, that gives more fluidity when you move around content on web sites.

I find the lack of IE9 on Windows Phone Mango disheartening.

I still say tht stock ics is the best considering it has full flash support, pity tht is being discontinued
