    Ready to Take It Back!!!

    I am using the browser that came with my new Galaxy 10.1 notebook and it's like being back on dial up. I have had days of frustration with waiting waiting waiting for pages to load and don't have the time and patience for it. Is there a faster browser to download or is this to be expected?

    Just to make sure you have the "tablet", dunno if there's a notebook out there.

    I use dolphin browser for my phone and tab, there are others out there you can try.

    Also check your connection, and you can also try resetting you tab, or power on/off.

    The stock browser is not the best by far.
    I have found Xscope loads fastest on mine but prefer Opera Mobile overall for free browsers. Overskreen is my main browser now but it wasn't free.
    I haven't tried the new Firefox Beta on the Tab yet but on my phone it is much faster than the stock and Opera.

    +1 on dolphin - but the stock browser shouldn't be that slow - go to settings, applications, locate the browser and then clear data

    Device
    Galaxy Tab 10.1
    Also try going into settings/applications/manage and elect browser and then clear cache. That sometimes helps.

    Forgive me for my lack of knowledge with this type of system, but do I download the other browsers or add them as an app? Thanks for responding!

    That is correct. Also when you tap a link it'll ask which browser you want to use. This is a very good way to compare them and once you decide which you like best the next time you open a link check "use by default" then tap which one and it'll be your default browser until you change it. To do that go to settings, applications, find the one you no longer want as default, tap it, scroll down until you see clear defaults, tap it and it's no longer the default browser.
    Hope that helps

    Just go the maket store and find the browser you want to try and download it. If you don't like it you can always uninstall. Oh by the way I'm using Dolphin HD, bit of getting use to but when you master it it's very good and free :-)

    Thanks so much for your input, I've downloaded a few and am currently liking Dolphin (which I had never heard of before!!) I will be coming here asking dumb questions while I try to figure out all the stuff.

    There are no dumb questions honestly.
    We were all a newb at some point and enjoy sharing what we've learned.
