Having Chrome as my primary desktop browser (windows), chrome (android) shows my open tabs on my desktop and all my bookmarks are synced. Firefox (android) can do that but I rarely use FF on my desktop.

Chrome is one of my favorite browsers on Mobile, although I often find myself on my Nexus 7 after changing tabs waiting for the damn thing to load the page again.

On my phone it's the same (Galaxy Nexus). Here's hoping that they can improve that.
The stock browser on my Galaxy Nexus is so good by itself. I'm surprised how well it works (Except it crashes more than other browsers..)

I've found Google Chrome to be the fastest browser for me. I've tried the Dolphin which many people tout but I find Chrome to just be screaming fast.

Still no flippin' user agent control - one of the most important missing features and one it boggles my mind has not been implemented in any Android browser made by Google (some 3rd parties add the feature for their devices).

Many sites don't work with the "request desktop site" menu option. Once they decide you're a mobile device, that's it. Or, they change but only return their homepage, not the page you wanted.

I can spoof my user agent on Firefox for Android easily via its handy plugin support.

Oh well. Still typing this on Chrome for Android as it has the most beautiful interface and is the most pleasant to use overall. But seriously Google, get it together will you??!

Used dolphin for months. Switched to Firefox for speed back on Android 2.3.4. Now that I've got a GS3, I can't tell the difference in speed any more. Think I'll try out Chrome and see how it stacks up. This may be what finally gets me to switch from Firefox on my desktop.

[citation][nom]jonyah[/nom]Can it copy/paste yet? Ugh, I hated it because I couldn't copy text before.[/citation]
It's always been able to do that for me. (Galaxy Nexus under Android 4.1, previously 4.0)
