Browser Wars: the best 10 Android browsers go toe-to-toe

benchmarking overall browser performance is a tricky affair. There's always the fear that one or all (in which case its fine) of the browsers you may want to test are going to game the benchmark one way or another....

Puffin is insanely fast indeed! Main complain is that, it kinda lags? Well, Chrome does lag too.

Where's the UI part of the article?

That's what I was looking for...

Tried Puffin after reading the article and it's really fast. Still the UI is not very smooth. Best part is I can view sites banned in my country. :) I'd have this as my alternate browser for Flash sites.

Am I the only one here who cares about scrolling speed, and clean design far more than load times and benchmarks? Tried puffin. It was complete crap. Favorite browser on low end phones is still the stock browser. Clean and extremely smooth. Chrome is my favorite on high end devices that have enough horsepower. Love the UI of chrome.

Why is Puffin so unknown? It was the only browser on the list that I didn't recognize and it blew the competition out of the water! I installed it and can't believe how fast it is. Full webpages loaded in a second, on Sprint's 3G! I've never been able to load anything with Sprint, and with such speed! I hate to say this but Puffin just stole a Chrome lover.

I don't care about synthetics, and from my own experience Dolphin destroys AOSP, Firefox and Chrome in terms of scrolling smoothness and usability. The unobstructive full screen mode in Dolphin alone makes it light years ahead.

Thanks to this article my generation old phone and tablets when it comes to browsing has been "updated", meaning Puffin performs as advertised. Now my Nook HD and HD+ is as fast as my iPad and don't even use it anymore. The developers should market this more as it is the best browser out of all tested, I've used them all.

Does anybody have a solution for syncing bookmarks between Puffin on Android and a desktop?
