Google Back when I reviewed the Nexus 7, I mentioned that I was disappointed with Chrome for Android. It often felt slow, would hang, and typing in the address bar and input fields on webpages would lag. Scrolling wasn't always optimal, and sometimes, it would simply freeze up altogether. We're several months down the line now - has the situation improved for me?

Now that Fennec runs smoothly and firefox team has the act together almost everything syncs over devices and even achitectures. Try fennec, it might surprise you. It is really good uses a full gecko rendering engine (not a crippled mobile version) and support addons* just as firefox does and if you want a web compatible browser that supports all new nits and grits you will have to pick FF for your pc usage anyways afaik. Syncing addons and extrensions is super easy: Just as in chrome you can use the online service or you could keep all of your settings by just backing up the .config/mozilla or AppData\Roaming\Mozilla folders depending on OS.
Also you can "get your sync on" even on obscure plattforms like AmigaOS and OS/2\Ecomstation easily.

FF for desktop and Fennec for mobile is just a winning sollution in my book.
