Yeah, I'd say the same one as the desktop system.

Of course, it might not run perfectly well on a limited device, a browser like Chrome will use more memory than a single process browser, but at 3GB of RAM that is meaningless.

I run FireFox with couple of extensions (HideMenubar, Glasser, Autohide Statusbar and of course Adblock Plus). Have Chrome on standby although I've been using Opera's latest beta(10.5) more often since it's as fast and doesn't report everthing I do back to Schmidt and his Do No Evil crew.
