Android browser: standard, Chrome or Mercury?

Hi,

Whenever I open a webpage on my new Galaxy S5, it asks whether I want to open it with standard browser, Chrome or Mercury.
I wonder what the best option would be. I love the sync feature I'm using in Firefox right now but then again when I use multiple window in Android, there is no Mercury browser.

I wonder what the best option of these 3 browsers would be. Therefore this question: what are your expriences?

! Note: I use keepass2android so it should be compatible with that. I never see it popup offering a password but that could also be due to my swype keyboard?

Please advise.

I have an S5 but don't have your exact setup. I use CM Browser and either roboform or built in browser if I want passwords or forms to be filled. Passwordbox will fill forms and passwords for chrome and built in browser.

I'm partial to the Chrome browser myself, and it does a good job of syncing (although it can be a touch creepy to see the search you just did on your desktop showing up in your phone).

Works well with each of the password keepers I've tried.

Thanks that's your experience indeed, but that doesn't make it  clear  to me.
What in general is considered the best browser with password manager and form filler?
There is the default browser (cm? not sure what you mean by that), and there are Chrome, Mercury.  They all have a form fill in option so why use another tool? There is keepass 2 android but you use password box, does it sync with keepass?

I am VERY wary of letting any browser remember passwords, since that tends to be the first place malware looks for credentials.  CM is the browser installed with CleanMaster (which the S5 doesn't need, but I still like the browser).  The only app that dows a decent job, that I know of, of doing form fills and password fills in a DIFFERENT browser is passwordbox.  I like roboform, but it works best with it's own built-in browser.  As far as I know, none work with keepass, although they may import your keepass data.  I haven't used keepass in years.

I just tested it and I'm flumoxed.  I can't even figure out how to get my passwords into the android app no less how to fill.  Do I need another app other than keepass2android?

You're asking me? What about you're reading the manual? I'm using Dropbox as a source file.
It didn't help me but that might be due to the fact I'm using Swype.
The reason for my post is that I'd like to know anybody had made it work.

Don't get hot under the collar.  I installed this to try to get it to work for you, I already use something else. You're welcome and I'm gone.

Sorry bout that. I mkind of frustrated by recent answers to my questions that were not accurate and get the impression that I might as well just post on free forums instead of paying for EE.
Yes I use dropbox to store a keepass file. The keepass2android then opens this keepassfile in dropbox (both apps on android). That all works fine but the step that the browser interacts with keepass2android doesnt happen.

Got it working now.
If you need to lookup a password for a webpage, you go to Menu/Share... and select Keepass2Android.
