Indeed, not being chained to your desktop or laptop computer to get on the web was one of the biggest reasons for the early adoption of smartphones. To this day, it still is, which is also why the browser apps category on the Google Play Store is among the most popular, with millions upon millions of downloads every month. That, not at all coincidentally, is why we also dedicate significant effort to the task of benchmarking the performance of a whole bunch of alternative browsers every 9 to 12 months.
So which one do you use? Is it the default browser by your manufacturer (those are getting rarer and rarer)? Or do you stick with one of the proven bunch, such as Chrome, Firefox, or Opera? What about outliers, any of you rocking a relatively obscure browser app? Let us know, and consider sharing the reasons behind your pick!

I used to love and use Chrome, but in my new S6 it sucks, so I moved to the default Galaxy browser.

I use Chrome for my PCs Firefox on Android since its the only browser with extensions I do miss Chrome's better UI and speed, but things like Block Origin for blocking Ads make Firefox better on Android IMO For iOS I use Safari since Apple doesn't allow third party engines

Chrome when I'm at home, Opera when I'm using my 3G data. Opera saves way more data.

I used opera for a long time, since my blackberry phones... But when I was on my third Android phone, the app was changed drastically and became buggy and unintuitive... That's when I started using Chrome... The only thing I miss is word wrap...
