Dolphin Browser HD now in Android Market with many new features
With a number of third party browsers trying to attract the attention of Android users, the Dolphin Browser HD joins the list with a number of new features. Joining pre-release versions of the Skyfire and Fennec browsers, the latest build of the Dolphin Browser HD includes multiple tabs, full multitouch support, a YouTube downloader, a thumbnail flick menu and more. You can install the software for free at the Android Market, or scan the QR code on the search link. You must be running Android 2.0 or higher on your handset. Including the stock browser, which one are you Android users partial to?

I'm a big fan of Opera Mini myself.

Serious questions, not trolling. Is it really any good vs Mini Chrome on the Hero and other HTC phones? Especially with them supporting multitouch etc?

I installed a Skyfire apk file downloaded from a website, but it wouldn't run : (

Why are you trying to download it from a website? Its already available in the android market.

Agreed. Skyfire is awesome, looks like Android software, multitouch, stable, fast loads, and Flash on most websites.

opera is great if you just want it to load fast and u dont care about all the flash and java. if your just trying to read something, opera is the best. i still prefer dolphin over skyfire, but its more because im impatient and i dont watch that much flash content :) if i did.. or i had a phone that ran on s omething other than 1.5, id prob love skyfire more :)

I personally have spent a lot of time using the stock Droid browser, Dolphin (and the HD all day today) XScope, Skyfire, and Opera Mini, and they all have some plusses and minuses, depending on what you want to view...I personally like XScope the best (with the opera skin on it) because of the speed and the built in task manager. That being I use the opera mini in ultra low signal areas for the the speed for text only sites, and I use skyfire for video. I used to use Dolphin and would recommend it to anyone who doesn't want to pay for XScope because it still kills the stock browser, and truthfully the new HD version does have a smoother zoom function, I just don't like the design quite as much
