Most, but not all, webpages are displayed correctly in Opera, but very many pages in Maxthon look far from the original page, even the Grooveshark does not look good in my Maxthon, and Miren is also showing most, but not all, pages more correctly than Maxthon.

But Opera doesn't have the Facebook website chat window, so I will still use MAXTHON for Facebook to have the feel of desk top chat.
I will use Opera for video streaming only.
Miren for music streaming,
and MAXTHON for Facebook.

AnonD-18025, 01 Nov 2011You're right.

But I think webpages look a lot better in Miren, and I like that Miren is able to import bookmarks from a html-file because I can copy all my many bookmarks, organized in many folders, from my Laptop-computer Firefox browser.
Maxthon is good but I will probably use Miren and Opera, and Opera is actually better at showing the webpages correctly and if I do not want to multitask at the same time as I watch a streaming flash movie then Opera is actually the best choice for flash movies.
Can someone please tell me if there is a way to uninsall a app called LAYER from my phone? It doesn't want to uninstal!!
has anyone actually used this app?
I am totally puzzeled by this app, and the point of it on your phone!!
please make sure you don't instal it because you stock with it forever like I have!!

I will use Miren for music streaming and MAXTHON for Facebook.
I will set aside Dolphin and Opera for the meantime.
I also have Boat browser, it has a little similarity with the iPhone Safari browser. Like Dolphin, also it does not play music streaming in the background.

I think it is actaully better to use more than just one browser at the same time so I do not accidentally turn of or close the background-streaming music or video when I am at the same time is doing something else on the web.
AnonD-252, 01 Nov 2011I am right now using Miren and listening to the "Pop"-station on Grooveshark in the ... moreOk now I got the settings.
Grooveshark website music play list streaming continue playing in the background and facebook chat pop up window appear like in desk top, both working fine now.
And the sound is louder than MAXTHON!
Thanks for the settings, but there is still one thing I can't find in the settings: while playing the Grooveshark music streaming and I open a new page the music pauses.
In MAXTHON if you open another page the music streaming continues.
Can you help me find that setting in Miren?
If not I will just use Miren for Grooveshark and other browsers for other sites.

then again different people have different need, I don't like the idea of talking to the phone, specially if it doesn't execute the command well, I am sure siri is better in that respect, but overall gs2 better than 4s.
by the time GS3 comes 4s will be totally history!
they spend 16 months and came up with something which is basically the same as i4!
anyhow, thanks again , hope you also read my other posts to you!
I will let you know once got the Opera mobile!!
do you also think the battery consumption is better with Opera?
