Dolphin Browser offers Flash support for Android 5.0 and more new features
The popular third-party Dolphin Browser has been updated to support Android 5.0. The browser now supports Flash and the whole browsing experience has been enhanced with the update. It might be a day late, but the update also includes some Christmas themed wallpaper. An interesting new feature automatically clears app storage when there is not enough native storage to run the browser.

Another new feature will allow you to share content with other smartphone users via an NFC connection. Using Dolphin Connect, you will be able to sync speed dials, add-ons, themes, settings and more. And while you are checking out a website, the bottom-bar will disappear giving you a full screen view of the site.

If you're tired of polishing up the chrome or using your stock Android browser, you might want to give the Dolphin Browser a try. The developer claims over 100 million downloads on Android and iOS, and you can join them by clicking on the sourcelink.

Tried it earlier , chrome > all still. THey need to stop making it "The lightest browser" and start making it the BEST browser. Chrome is heavy on storage and ram , but does the job like a boss.

Chrome is simply not the best browser. . It needs lot of resources and is slow... AOSP browser is still best for me...

I'm the opposite. Chrome is the first Google App I go out of my way to replace. It's slow, cumbersome and a memory hog. It lacks interesting mobile features that the competition have, and just doesn't have that great a mobile UI.

Chrome sucks because Google for some bizarre reason decided to stop doing text re-flow, so now if you resize a page, it scrolls off the edges and you spend more time wiggling the screen around than reading, dolphin still does proper text re-flow so you can still see all the text on the screen without having to mess around.

And don't forget, for all those that "prefer no reflow", it can be turned off in the Dolphin settings.

Firefox for Android is quite nice and it supports AdBlock Plus which is very handy for those sites that are a bit too aggressive on the ads.

Is that adblock as in a plugin or the android-wide app?

I used to love Dolphin, but stopping using it when I kept having issues, contacting them, and they were doing nothing. Using CM browser now, get a little bit to get used to but issues are addressed way better.

Exactly the same story bro, except for switching to UC after CM. Nothing wrong with CM, but UC has everything that Dolphin has(except sonar and custom gestures ) and works just as good as CM.

Give UC Browser a try & you will never look back to any other browsers. Have tried all browsers on the play store & always end up with the best - UC. - 16GB LG G3 User

Agreed! I was a long time Dolphin fan and user, but it just started to collect glitches and became laggy over time. UC is brilliant and works beautifully

Got my OPO yesterday and installed Dolphin. Just as I was remembering the steps to install flash and the possibility of it not working on 4.4.4, I opened Dolphin and it offered to download and install it for me. 30 seconds later I had flash up and running.
