Anyone waiting for Firefox to become official needs to try Dolphin and Dolphin HD. Dolphin Browser is faster and works better on sites like YouTube than Opera. I also recommend downloading FREEdi Video Helper, it allows you to download videos from youtube and play them on your Android Phone. Another nice feature of Dolphin Browser is the ability to run Dolphin in iPhone mode so you can go to sites that are optimized for iPhone. The add-ons and tabs as well as themes also help optimize the Dolphin experience. The other plus for Dolphin is the fact it can allow you to make it your default browser which Opera dn Skyfire don't.

The downsides to Dolphin are the ads and the fact to use the HD version you must have Android 2.0 or higher. Some of the add-ons also only work on Dolphin HD. The final downside is the fact gestures is on by default as well as the asking to subscribe to RSS feeds. To me this is annoying but a small price to pay and easy to fix through options.

If you wish to have the Firefox experience but aren't into test Alpha builds, Dolphin is a must have for you until Firefox is officially released for Android. If you don't like ads you can pay for the paid version or use Opera without the ads.

Dolphin wins hands down in my opinion due to it's customization and how it works better overall on sites than it's competition. Try it for yourself and see what you think.
