      I gave Firefox a quick try, but I didn't find it any faster than the stock browser on various sample pages I tried and I found that it didn't support things that the stock browser does. For example, when I got to my web page (www.arcx.com/sites) and display a map of cell sites, I can't drag the map on Firefox as I can on the stock browser. Clearly this functionality is missing from it. Overall I didn't like Firefox as much as the stock browser and for the time being I've uninstalled it (though I might try it again later if someone can point out a clearly-superior aspect of it).

      On a tablet, the stock browser is still more powerful than firefox. Faster and lighter on the ram too.
