I use the stock browser, and I find it's the best for my purposes. One thing is annoying, however -- I can't have more than four windows open. Is there a way to increase this? I have a Galaxy S Vibrant running 2.2 (Nero v5 with TouchWiz), and plenty of memory for more windows.

From looking at some posts on Android Forums (1), (2) I think it's just not possible - to get more windows/tabs you'll need to use another browser like Dolphin HD/Mini.

Edit: Looks from this post on XDA that it's hard-coded into the browser; it can be changed, but not easily.

    I myself moved to Dolphin Mini as it has unlimited Tabs, loads from cold as quick as the stock browser with way more functionality.

  • I agree - I moved to Dolphin Mini a while ago and haven't looked back.

  • I'm a power user and developer, so I have no problem hacking the browser to do it. Presumably I can't use the version in that thread since it's for the Desire, but it provides a good starting point. Thanks. Feb 25, 2011 at 18:33
