Best browsers for Android tablets

According to current stats in the Google Play app store, Dolphin, Firefox and Opera Mobile have each been downloaded and installed at least 10 million times. We know that these browsers are optimized for smartphones, but how well do they work on tablets?

Opera Mobile: What we didn't like

Navigating through multiple opened tabs requires two steps: you tap an icon to the left of the URL entry box (or the Opera logo and then Bookmarks). This will slide down and open a carousel-style interface depicting large thumbnails of your active tabs, which you can scroll through horizontally. (Through this, you can also close a tab or open a new one.) It works decently, but we really think either the traditional tab UI that Dolphin uses or something similar to Firefox’s system may have been better when using Opera on a tablet.
