I am about to order a Nexus 4, and have read that Chrome isn't very fast (lag, scrolling issues, etc...). I was wondering if there is another browser that won't lag on the Nexus 4?

Firefox, Dolphin HD, Opera, the world is yours on Android. I'd recommend all of these highly, but Dolphin HD is the best, IMO.

I have an S2 and only use chrome - No issues with it that I can speak of. My advice is to just try them, it's not like it is going to cost you anything since they are all free ;)

I've tried a lot of browsers, and for some reason I always end up going back to the AOSP browser, it does extremely well with benchmarks and is great with scrolling and zooming. It also has flash support (if that's important to you, if not you don't have to install Flash).

None of the rest of them ever are quite as smooth or responsive, though I do find myself enjoying Chrome more and more, they're planning on releasing a ton of updates for it soon, so a lot of the issues could be fixed.

I like Dolphin much more. It has more modern features.

The best 3 would be

  1. Dolphin Browser
  2. Boat Browser
  3. Firefox

Dolphin if you want performance. Firefox if you want to have your devices sync with each other.

Honestly, I would use Chrome just because everything Google syncs to all of your devices, and your browsing history could impact your Google Now feed.

On ICS, I love the stock browser because it syncs your bookmarks. Pretty much that's what I would want in a browser. Yeah your browsing history affects that Now feed because when I searched for The White House, it gave me an estimate on how long it would be to drive there. It's convenient to some degree, haha.

Chris even did a video on dolphin browser on his android device and he said it was better than chrome. But soon enough Google will update chrome for android to the current desktop version.
