    Used Opera, mostly, on my droid DX.
    Recently swapped to a Razr M. It came with Chrome. I gave it a go, for a while. Couldn't figure out how to change the home page and some other things bothered me.
    Went back to Opera.

    I use FireFox on the desktop, but the Android version sucks.
    I use Opera on my older Droid X. It doesn't run the newer versions of Android so can't try Chrome, but I like Opera pretty well.

    Chrome, it has the added bonus of syncing bookmarks with your desktop chrome browser.

    I also like using Chrome to phone on my pc. It allows you to send your webpage from your desktop to your phone.

    I use the AOSP browser because it works well with Flash. I know everybody is pushing HTML 5, but there is still a lot of Flash sites out there and until the sites get updated I've got to have a way to access them.

    I am using Chrome on my Nexus 7. Very fast and stable. I am pretty happy so far.

    Opera ran like pig. Didn't like their bookmark menu either.

    I run Dolphin with adblock and screen toggle and Firefox.

    I mostly use Dolphin but a couple sites from work (outlook) run better on Firefox.

    I run two browsers. I use the stock browser for sites that work well with mobile browsers and I configure Opera to desktop mode for everything else.

    I run Chrome and Firefox Beta on my Nexus 7 with the Flash apk for flash content.

    I run the native Android browser and Firefox Beta with the Flash apk on my Galaxy Nexus. Not a big fan of Chrome on the phone but I like it for my tablet.

    Yep. This single feature trumps all the others, for me, since I use a laptop running Chrome (and all the Google goodies), a Motorola Xoom tablet, and a Samsung Galaxy S3 phone.

    I ran Dolphin browser on my older Galaxy S. I recently got a Motorola Electrify M which has Chrome pre-installed and it is just as good, if not better than Chrome on a PC.

    I was using the default browser on my Thrive, until it became unreliable. Now it's Chrome. No problems at all, which is odd since I had tons of problems with Chrome on my PC.
