Dolphin Browser for Android updated – drops “HD” from name
Popular mobile web browser, Dolphin Browser HD, has undergone yet another update on the Android platform. The latest release brings the browser up to version 8.7.0 and drops the “HD” from its moniker. 

The name change isn’t the only thing included with this update. The bookmark deletion processes has been made easier, dolphin connect is now faster and more stable, there is an easy access shortcut to dolphin sonar from the homescreen, the address bar now has a cleaner design, the landscape keyboard view has been optimized for some devices, and, of course, there are “various stability and performance improvements.” 

The update went live yesterday and requires Android 2.0.1 and up. You can head on over to the Google Play store to update Dolphin Browser right now.

I strayed from Dolphin some time ago. I may be coming back... but damn it, I already paid for a pro version of another browser and now I feel like I'd just be tossing that money away.
Is this what iOS users feel like? Just so much buyer's remorse for feeding the machine they will dauntlessly trudge forward, damned be the consequences, to support ill wrought impulse purchases?

Dolphin Browser is free. It's no different than paying for browsers on Android.

They dropped the HD? Doesn't sound premium anymore...

Dolphin Browser is all I use. It is better than mobile Chrome. Easier to use, takes up less resources, and takes up less precious phone space (I have 2gb left of app room but I still get obsessive if I go under that line. I went from the stock app space of 2.4gb to 1.98gb and it makes me antsy).
