Love it, replaced the stock browser for 99% of sites already. Needs UA switch and why does it open YouTube videos in browser instead of sending them to the app? I'm sure these minor issues will be fixed soon.

It's fast. It looks amazing (better than the desktop version). And it has some great features, swipe the screen to switch tabs, sync tabs from desktop PC, auto-zoom tiny links, etc. It's not perfect, but it is a beta...

Wow! What an improvement over stock browser. Super smooth on Galaxy Nexus 4.0.2. Pinch zoom is fricken phenomenal! Tabs are easy to use. Wouldn't mind having a close program option in the upper right pull-down. Thanks Google.

Good, but not as smooth as Opera Mobile
Loads sites and tabs very quickly, like desktop Chrome. But choppy scrolling and navigation (just like the stock ICS browser) means I'm sticking with Opera Mobile for now.

NO flash! UI is nice like it but seriously need Flash or at least HTLM 5 or anything that let's me see cnettv or car sites with 360 view of cars or even other sites that have flash content. GNexus ,I'll keep my ics browser
