Which Android browser do you use? (poll results)
Yesterday, we asked you about your Android browser of choice. Today, voting is already closed, and the results are in.

As some of you may remember, almost exactly a year ago, we published the same exact poll. Why repeat it now? Simple: it lets us contrast and compare. Since last year's poll had voting open for nearly a week, the number of participants was considerably larger — keep that in mind. So what can we tell based on the info we now have?

For starters, Google's Chrome browser for Android is essentially unchallenged and is the daily driver of nearly 62% of voters (a seeming improvement over its position last year). Another interesting observation is that as fewer and fewer phone manufacturers bundle their own browser apps, so has the number using those solutions contracted, and are now almost tied with other established browsers — like Firefox and Opera. See the rest of the results and how they compare to last year's survey:

I do think that the results can be quit different when asked to casual consumers.

AdBlock Browser is the best, especially for PA

Hmm, how did I miss this? My vote would have been for Firefox.

5.79 -> 7.68 is 33% growth, it was a rough start but for the past 2 yr it's been a solid fast full featured browser. Most of my friends that use Chrome didn't even know FF also has synced history. That surprised me.

What are the browsers based on or compatible with Chrome I mean I've seen NoChromo which is a modified Chrome and I think Javelin Browser syncs your bookmarks and history with Chrome. Any others?

MiniBrowser PRO is the best one. It has simple easy tuuse interface and perfect AdBlock.
