Dolphin Browser 4.0 released for iPhone

Dolphin Browser 4.0 released for iPhone
The iOS version of the popular mobile browser, Dolphin, has just been updated to version 4.0 bringing a host of new features.

Most notably, Dolphin Browser 4.0 adds voice control in the form of Dolphin Sonar. While this feature has already been available on the Android version, this is Sonar's debut on iOS. Sonar allows you to use your voice to search the Internet, share items on various social networks, save bookmarks, and more.

In addition to Sonar, Dolphin Browser 4.0 adds a URL keyboard, the ability to chose between four different search engines, three choices of font size, a night mode that allows you to dim the screen with one button, the ability to save images to your phone’s photo album, and, of course, the ubiquitous “various stability and performance improvements.”

Dolphin Browser is available in the App Store now for free. Dolphin Sonar, however, is an in-app add-on that costs $0.99.

i have tried both.. many android apps are annoying with ads and many are way less streamlined than the ios counterparts... and many of the apps i use daily in my iphone are not to be seen in the android marketplace

And android trolls say there's no browser choices on iOS. It's obvious they've never used an iPhone.

True there are decent choices. But in androids favor, sonar is a free update. And you can choose the default browser, which is the reason why I stayed away from other browsers when I had an iPhone.

so? You can't set defaults, so they're not really replacements

What does thr matter. I can open the browser I want to use and surf the web. It's not a big deal.

Its easy... you just copy the link switch to the browser you want paste the link and then hit go. Oh wait... clicking the link sounds better to me.

you do realize that all these features have been standard on android for years and quite a few more. oh and dolphin on android is fully flash enabled and runs quite well. Its not that you have no "browser choices" on iOS, its that non of them are as fully equipped as those on android. true story.
