Best browsers for Android tablets

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

And the winner is...

We’re going to give it to Opera Mobile because of its superior text-reflowing, and visually appealing and customisable start page. After you set the start page with your favourite sites, using Opera Mobile on a tablet to browse the web feels like a casual reading experience from the moment you first launch it, tap a thumbnail shortcut to one of your favourite sites, and double-tap on text blocks in a page to magnify their size and legibility. We just wished it used a tab UI - or a method like Firefox’s - to manage multiple open pages.
