I thought FF would be nice so I could sync it with my desktops and notebook.  But I genuinely do not get the mobile version.  It's like the UI was written for someone from a different planet.

That is, they worked better for some things the stock browser fails on but they have warts of their own to approximately a similar degree of annoyance.  So I stopped looking awhile back.  Got tired of the aggravation of never finding one that was, overall, truly Better.
