Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y Interesting theory, backed up by data, to explain the difference between Android device sales and browser usage share. "The stock Android browser in previous versions reportedly had problems rendering non-mobile optimized web-pages, leading to lower usage. If a user realized that certain webpages were improperly rendered on a mobile device, it would obviously lead to a drop in future browsing sessions from that device. Meanwhile, on Android 4.0, as consumers have realized that the browsing experience is more "desktop-like", it has led to an increase in browser usage."

Don't even get me started on Firefox Mobile.

Even if the browser was okay, All the mobile browsers that aren't Webkit render pages badly because a most developers use the -webkit extensions.
