Firefox 4 currently outperforms Chrome and IE8, Preformance wise (webpage to webpage loading times and browsing smoothness) not opening speed.

Just count how long it takes to load a page like on different browsers and then try touch scrolling with them. Firefox works quite well. IE9 with its own hardware acceleration is right behind it.

Update came down the line last night.

It's funny, when I installed Firefox on my Duo, I started using the touch screen right away. There wasn't any problem or anything, it was completely natural feeling.

I didn't consider that other browsers might NOT be as touch-friendly.
