I have Firefox 4 for Android on my Samsung Vibrant and it is very responsive with html, but as you stated it still has issues with anything "Flash".

To be honest I have never really used firefox on my N900 as it sooooo slow. Imbuilt browser and Chromiumium much better.  Opera ok but bit slow as well

It's pretty bad. Haven't tried any HTML5 sites on it yet. I Didn't know you could get chromium, i'll have to give it a shot. I mostly flick between Opera and MicroB.

Have you got the lastest Opera, seems to have improved the screen tearing.
 
I read on a thread by one of the ANgry Birds devs (Angry Birds started on N900) that the problem with N900 is that you cant wait for Vsync

Until Firefox gets out of Microsoft "bloat is better" mode, I'm sticking with other browsers...

Stopped using it ages ago on anything as it takes forever to load .
 
Version 4 does seem considerably faster at rendering once it has loaded but compared to chrome its miles behind

@JJ yeah, the latest opera is nice. Still no flash :(   Can't get it to spoof a non mobile site for youtube either.  I've noticed the tearing, does not seem noticable on Nitdroid though.

@Persia
firefox has been getting worse and worse since 3 began. Stalls at javascript, bloated, crash prone. And I thought it was the last best hope.

I had trouble with that and found that Vodaphone ship all there phones with the internet connection as Wap  adn had to add a proper Access point.
 
Mot got nitdroid installed yet as my sd card not up to the task.  Whats it like.  Has nitdroid got the later hardware acceleration ???
 
Have you tried meego yet, supposeed to be quite nice and have fully hardware accelerated flash on ii

Vodaphone, I changed the connection a while ago. I normally Wifi anyway.
Nitdroid is cool, not as fast as the real thing. but not bad. Some software suffers from the lack of capacitive touch.

I tried a couple of webOS games as well, they ran ok, but again with no multitouch.

Kept away from meego so far, they keep calling it a 'developers edition' which makes me a bit nervous. The only thing I can develop is a headache. Have you given it a go yet?

I use maemo.org for my info, but the site is a bit of a mess with massive threads, so I'm probably a bit behind the times.

I'm hoping we will get AROS at some point. See how many OS's I can shove on there before it explodes :)

Kind of hating Nokia at the moment. The whole meego/QT route sounded great to me. I was looking forward to something like the N900 with a bigger screen, maybe a 4 row keyboard.

Meego/qt was looking very interesting.  They did say they will release one device specifcally for it.  Then everything else will be windows 7.   Not tried windows 7 on phones, and I have got nothing against the idea, it just that its replacing two very interesting mobile phone paths.  Also mean prob will not see much advancement for my N900 and have got it for another year

I think i'm going to miss out on my next upgrade and see what happens. Will save me some money anyway, going sim only.

Iv'e tried WP7. It feels like a feature phoneOS, with giant panels and a heavy amount of scrolling. I don't like dumbed down smartphones, I originaly got my first symbian smartphone because it was like a psion for phonecalls. I like my smartphones to be mini computers :)

I don't have anything against MS, iv'e owned two winMo phones in the past. The old WinMo might have been clunky, but it felt like an OS, and had plenty of applications available. I still can't bare to part with my HTC Universal.

Maybe android will progress to something I will want to use. It's inelegant compared to Maemo though (must be the Amiga in me!).
