Best browsers for Android tablets
We know Chrome, Firefox, Dolphin and Opera are optimised for smartphones, but how well do they work on tablets?

According to current stats in the Google Play app store, Dolphin, Firefox and Opera Mobile have each been downloaded and installed at least 10 million times. We know that these browsers are optimised for smartphones, but how well do they work on tablets?
Obviously, the larger screen size of a tablet can allow for more leeway in how an app’s UI is presented, and also better accommodate for two-fingered (or two-thumbed) interactivity. We also tested the Android version of Chrome, since it’s the default browser that comes with the latest version of Android (Jelly Bean). We tested each browser on a Lenovo IdeaPad A1, which has a 7-inch screen and runs Android 4.04 Ice Cream Sandwich.
