To Dolphin or not to Dolphin?

What are some of the advantages of switching to DolphinHD or Skyfire? I am totally unfamiliar with both.

Dolphin has a very nice user interface and you can perform Gesture control for quick page access etc.

Skyfire is nice and was designed primarily to provide Flash support for devices which do not support Flash. Unfortunately, when you try to watch Flash video there is a small pop-up box that will not go away. The makers of Skyfire are aware of this and are working on a resolution.

After having my android phone for a while I'm more likely to use Miren Browser than Dolphin.

Dolphin was nice but a large memory hog.

Agree with you on Miren! It's fast, runs smoothly on the PE and if you turn "tabs always displayed" on you get a true full screen mode (a tip from the poster who recommended it here on MR).

There are a few versions of the Dolphin browser floating around. The HD version runs pretty smooth and doesn't bog down the Edge. I agree with the two previous posts, Miren is also a very nice browser as is xScope which also offers full screen mode.
