Author's Note: How many different Web browsers are there for Android tablets?

Web browsing isn't -- and hasn't been -- simply a desktop or laptop activity for a few years now. These days, it's all about multitasking on a mobile device, whether it's a smartphone or a tablet. Given the choice for surfing, I'll take a tablet over a smartphone every time. Who needs to deal with the tiny text and pictures on a phone when you can view full-size stories and multimedia on a tablet's huge screen? But browser makers haven't quite caught up to tablet hardware. The good news, however, is that tablet browsers are hot apps, which means a lot of effort is going toward making them better and better for tablet lovers everywhere.
