Here's how Google looks seen through 14 different Android browsers
Android is known for the variety of options it offers and when it comes to browsers you have tons of choice. Google alone makes you choose between the stock Android browser and the recently released mobile version of Chrome. 

For most, picking the ideal browser is a judgment based on its combined speed and looks appeal, and if you’re the one preferring the design and visual part, you won’t regret checking out how Google’s home page looks in 14 different Android browsers.

Google’s own Chrome and Android stock browser are at the beginning of the comparison, and it also includes some of the more popular browsers out there like Dolphin, Opera and Firefox. With it you can judge literally judge a browser by its front cover. The front cover of the Internet seems to be Google for most, and it renders very differently from the simplistic Chrome to the miniature Opera fonts.

Check out all the images below and let us know - which one you like best? Why?

Boat browser does wonders but I prefer using the stock browser for w/e phone I'm using. Chrome is butter smooth too but I found glitches here and there.

Not surprising, (to me at least) but Google looks best on the default Android browser.

Yeah, nothing beats the stock browser. Anything beats Firefox.- pages don't load right, its slow, its jerky, its unresponisve
Firefox for Android is really bad.
But i do love it for my PC!

Droid Razr Maxx being too weak, I don't think so.
I love Firefox, so I'm not hating on it either.

Angel actually looks pretty good with the ICS themed tabbed browsing.

Opera mini looks bad compared with others. Even though it is faster than the one i use, dolphin mini, it loads some websites as a desktop page and others sites completely different than it should be.

UC looks nice, but I would prefer Opera Mobile over any other browsers.

I'm not sure exactly what the point of this article is either. Looks more like a comparison of different browsers than anything else. You could have use any other web site instead of Google.

For looks, I prefer Firefox or Opera because they have the links I use. 99% of the time I know where I am and I know what POI are around me. I'm much more concerned with being able to Sign-in, access Classic vs. Mobile, get to Settings, etc.

I switched between Dolphin HD/Mini and Opera Mobile/Mini many times. Opera Mobile/Mini is just so much faster and saves you data.
