    sup guys! im new here as well as to windows phone. i've adored it since windows phone 7 came out in 2010. anyway, after playing with 3 browsers on my nokia lumia 635, internet explorer, UC browser, and maxthon cloud browser, i decided that those browsers won't work due to various problems on the respective browsers. now i can't decide which browser i should use. anyone have any ideas on which browser is the best one to use? thanks!

    I too have a Lumia 635 and am a first time windows phone user. I've had it for less than a day and it has crashed a number of times accessing this website so I went looking for a different browser and have tentatively settled on uc browser.

    UC Browser WP8.1 | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States)
    I've been using the UC 8.1 browser.
    Since it lets me actually use bing without Cortana it's become my go to choice on my phones.
    Very pleased with UC so far no problems on my 925 or my 635.

    turns out that internet explorer blinks on one of the websites. the other sites i've gone to appear to work fine. i've tried uc browser myself. It looked to be a very promising web browser, but the problem i have with it is that it keeps bringing up an out of memory at line 1 error and then it crashes. has anyone had that same issue?

    I find IE crashes hard on paltalk.com so giving UC 8.1 a try.

    I have the same phone as you and haven't seen this problem. I didn't see enough benefit with uc so I'm back to is for now.

    I had tried a few of the third-party browsers early on (WP7.0), and they were pretty clunky compared to IE. I tried the first few revs of Opera Mini for 8.1 and they all crashed on startup before ever showing me a single website - so I kind of dismissed the whole idea of third-party browsers for a while.

    But the latest rev of Opera Mini doesn't crash, and is pretty good. Ditto for UC browser. I still prefer IE, because it's what I know, but the others tempt me a little - they both manage tabs better, one of them (I forget which) has a "zip to the bottom of the page" gesture that's REALLY nice on long pages - little stuff like that.

    If your IE settings indicate "Desktop" mode, Bing.com goes to (surprise!) Bing.com; if your IE settings indicate "Mobile" mode, Bing.com brings up Cortana. I have no idea why this is, but it's clearly on purpose. (I really wish that I could override that setting per site - I generally prefer Mobile mode, but there's a non-zero number of sites that look awful or just plain don't work in it, and I dislike having to change my settings for one site.)

    UC is my favorite on WP and Android.
    Opera is also great (but not for WP).

    Paltalk.com crashes Surfy (and IE) on the Lumia 530. Must be lack of memory.
