I heard you could replace Chrome with a different browser, which one works best on the Nexus 7?
I’m using Firefox as well as Chrome and that works pretty well.
There are several others you can try like Dolphin, Opera, Maxthon, Ninesky, Boat, but I haven’t downloaded these. Would be interested to hear others’ opinions.
I’ve only really used Chrome but I think I can feel a bit of a test coming on… I’ll get back to you on this!
I have Chrome as my daily use only because of the sync feature with the desktop , but I recommend trying Boat browser which supports flash and it is really smooth and almost better than Chrome mainly because of its flash support.
It’s a pleasure.
I look forward to the report, especially for Dolphin.
Don’t expect anything too sophisticated, I’m not a professional reviewer!!
But hope I can give a feel for some of the other browsers and suggest which are worth trying out.
Boat gets my vote :-)
I started with Chrome, then Dolphin. Just downloaded Boat browser gonna check that out!
Don’t bother with Ninesky – it won’t work at all! I assume they may do an update and fix it at some point.
Dolphin for Pad doesn’t work either.
Yep ‘Dolphin for Pad’ just crashed.
Oh, and Ninesky just bombed out too.
Spot on Locky.
Android 4.1 support now added to Ninesky. But, having had a quick play, it looks like it is better suited to low spec mobile phones – it just doesn’t seem as fully featured as some of the other options.
I can’t see why you would chose it over eg Boat or Chrome.
Anyone prepared to stick up for Ninesky on a Nexus 7?
Guys is it me or the flash support on Boat browser has been dropped? Hasn’t been working n my tablet for few days now.
Is anyone experiencing this as well?
Been using opera mini on my droid phone for a good while now, which is a fairly basic browser, but my phone is a relatively low powered ZTE blade (aka Orange San Francisco), so anything else might make it chug a bit.
I might download opera mobile now though to see if the latest version of mini’s cousin has become impressive over the last year or so.
Just tried Flash in Boat and it worked fine. Tested with iPlayer and the vid played perfectly full screen.
With side loaded flash of course.
