I didn't know Word had a browser :p

No but seriously, I don't have smartphone yet, only because I think its too expensive for a phone really. I know, it might be more than just a phone but I don't really need the other stuff in my daily life.

The stock Honeycomb browser looks and feels (and is for all intents and purposes) like Chrome. Same rendering engine, Jscript engine, etc.

Jesus. I'd have thought technology buffs would know this, why do I keep seeing people ask why there is no chrome mobile browser? The default android browser is Chrome. It's a webkit browser so is pretty much the same thing.

Android’s Browser really isn’t Chrome. The two are both based on WebKit and use Google’s V8 JavaScript engine, but there are dozens of other features that Google is trying to associate with Chrome that they couldn’t possibly squeeze into a mobile web browser

I thought most people with an android phone switched to something better, like Dolphin. Well, I can't say better since I haven't used default since I got the phone, but it definitely wasn't the best back then.

[citation][nom]spookyman[/nom]I am surprised Google Android has no Chrome browser for their phones.[/citation]
if they added one, google would probably sue who ever made the google android OS and force them to remove it from the market place

I guess then Google would be forced to sue themselves then, since they own the developer that created the Android OS?

Been using Opera Mobile on my Android phone. Surprised more people don't, it's much better than the default Android browser.

That being said I never realized Opera was actually ranked #1 for mobile browsers. Everyone I know who has Android devices thinks I'm talking about Operah (the talkshow host) when I mention the browser I use.

Well, to be honest the default Android browser is at least decently functional while the mobile Safari is, well, a piece of turd at its best.
