Do you mean a browser that you installed especially, like Dolphin or Firefox? If those were my primary browsers, I'd probably update them as often as new versions are released (which is not all that often). I'm curious what prompted this question.

Someone said these days is good to have a browser that supports flash and html5 because these are the most used formats. Chrome is a good browser, but doesn’t have flash, but it performs very well. My friend said Dolphin Browser works really well and support flash and html 5. Sometimes it is hassle and wobbly for something new, but it all depends on whether or not you are noticing problems with your browser that you expect an update might have fixed since your version.

It seems that "someone" was misinformed. Flash on mobile is dead - Android no longer supports it, and iOS never did.

That said, the built-in browser does not get updated outside of Android updates, so that's once or twice a year, for as long as your device gets updates. Whether or not any particular browser that you install has more frequent updates is another matter, but at least it'd be independent of OS updates.
