Dolphin Browser HD for Android getting a major speed boost
posted by Scott H. / Jun 19, 2012, 3:49 PM
Whether the UI is as clean and nice as Chrome for Android is more an issue of preference, but the new Dolphin Browser HD beta does have two clear advantages for (some) users; Dolphin will run on any remotely modern Android phone (it only requires version 2.0.1 or higher), and it renders Flash content. In fact it’s surprisingly fast at rendering Flash-heavy websites, and hard not to imagine Adobe wishing this update could have rolled out a year or two earlier.
Testing with a dozen or so websites suggests that the new beta version is stable enough for regular use, so if you’re a Dolphin user it’s worth hitting up the source link to nab the beta. Owners of Android handsets that lack 4.0 ICS (which is around 9 in 10 of them as of last month) may also want to check it out, if they find that the stock Android browser isn’t fast enough for your web surfing needs.

Dolphin is great. Chrome beta still is in, well, beta. They have a few nagging bugs like the scrolling issue and a few others that are already acknowledged and in progress. Stock ICS brower has less overhead though vs Chrome.

I still love the stock ICS browser for its synchronisation with desktop Chrome, and i love opera for its lightweight data usage.. but i love dolphin too.. it's the best third party browser out there.. Is it normal to have 3 different browsers at one time? :P
