What's your favourite Android browser and why?

What's your favourite Android browser and why? I've been lazily using Chrome but realise there might be better browsers out there! Any recommendations?

I hate Chrome on Android, tbh... I find many Android browsers are bloated. They do this that and the other, but stuff that should be straightforward? Just look at the many people on the webs who wonder how you delete the browser history etc...
I use Firefox when I need something full-featured. For light fast browsing I use Opera Mini. It doesn't need high-speed connections just to skim the news. Firefox has some annoying quirks - such as text entry boxes on many sites that, whatever the zoom level, appear tiny. But it is fast...

Still using Chrome as its preinstalled. Was looking to switch to something else as latest Chrome update (v. 39) adds windowed mode that I absolutely hate. It's great for a tablet, but completely useless for a phone.

I use Chrome mostly because I use it on all my devices and enjoy the Omnibox Sync.

Although I do sometimes dabble in using UC Browser or Maxathon

It's not a bad idea to have UC Browser and/or Opera Mini installed. Even if you hate those, when you absolutely MUST check something on the web, and you have no WiFi around and no 3G, then those two will save your butt.
