What are the chances this is big enough for an S3? Specifically the feet which is the problem with another one similar to this I purchased where the feet were a little too small!

Maybe it's a handset firmware upgrade for your S3

I am just guessing !

I've got the Nexus 7. It's x100 smoother than any other Android device i've owned. GSIII comes closest but still way off.

Opinion, hence why I said smoothest android device "i've" ever used :-) I've used more than a few.

Still think my S2 with latest GB custom rom was best I used, slower but that was more to do with hardware

Really? My S3 is so much faster than my old S2. I've had the Sensation and Desire too (not to mention a few iPhones when I was a bit misinformed in my youth). Nothing comes close to the silky smoothness of my Nexus 7.

was meaning the total operation of a well developed custom rom versus ICS and JB. The speed is amazing on S3 but even ICS for it isn't that great and now we have JB. Played with N7 was ok but not for me already have a t ablet so can't justify it.

The only change I've noticed is new forward/back buttons on the stock browser and a contrast slider in the pull down notification area.
