Tried the FF beta a while back & wasn't too impressed. Might give it another go to see if it's much better now.

Still even Opera isnt perfect. Seems to often have buttons missing in javascript forms which sometimes means to can't 'submit' the form.

I'd agree with Random Noise, Opera is the best browser for Honeycomb 3.2 at the moment. It's strange that Honeycomb's stock browser is so much worse than 2.3.x's browsers.

Just tried the Firefox Nightly. Still very rough round the corners, but I did notice that if you click on the favicon it prompts to install with permissions like Locations, Offline Storage and Web Notifications. Could this be a built in implementation of Mozilla Prism, don't know, it didn't do anything when "installed"
