So, after getting an Asus Transformer, I thought about a decent browser for it. Free would be ideal, but a couple of quid is no major expense.
So far I’ve tried the standard browser. Its ok-ish, but seems to struggle with Facebook, which is one site I access quite frequently on the tablet.
Firefox is too slow, and apparently has issues with Flash, reloading libraries each start and won’t find bookmarks in the standard location.
Opera mobile is slightly better, as it’s much faster, and supports Flash. Their zoom function also works better too. Bookmarks are still an issue, but this could be fixed by their speed-dial feature, which I really love on my phone. Sadly, its designed for a phone screen, and therefore is limited to 9 squares about 2 inches square. Total waste of screen space on a tablet. You could easily fit 30+ decent sized buttons on there!
I also tried Dolphin, which looks to be Chrome based, but again, struggles with Facebook. Bookmarks are not a problem (unsurprising, since Google makes both Chrome and Android).
So, what would I like? Opera HD. Just like Opera mobile, but with a couple of UI tweaks to make the speed dial work better on a tablet, and use of standard bookmarks.
Is that too much to ask?
Lets wait and see…
