Web Browsing

The standard browser offered by Android 3.1 is fairly decent as far as tablet browsers go, offering users a Chrome-like experience with flash support and an auto-hiding URL bar. Tabbed browsing lets you keep multiple pages open at once, and there are virtually no features missing from the browser that appear in other browsers available to PC or Mac users.
