    Default Loving the new Dolphin HD Browser

    I recently downloaded the HD browser after upgrading to 2.1 and that thing is incredible. It's many times better than the last "regular" version. I love that the bookmarks order is customizable - the only change I would make there is to have them automatically alphabetized. Menu options are better. Functions are better. Tabbed browsing is better. Well worth the absolutely nothing I paid for it!

    If you haven't downloaded the HD version yet - highly recommended!

    Any word on any bookmark widgets for it like the HTC bookmark widget?

    I'm a big fan as well. Been using it as default for about a week now. Love the tabs and the gestures.

    Twice I've installed Dolphin HD.
    Twice I've removed it.

    Too slow. Annoyingly slow. Even on WIFI.
    Clunky zoom. The Stock Browser's text zoom is perfect.
    The Ads. The freakin ads!
    Too much real estate lost to tabs. Sure I could turn them off.

    Don't get me wrong, Dolphin is sexy, but not worth the aggravation. I want fast, and zooming text is really important on a small device.

    The only cool thing about it is the gestures.

    Get the paid version. You will stop complaining.

    I installed Dolphin HD on my Incredible today and it immediately caused my phone to start resetting. When the phone reset, it didn't open up with the wallpaper I use and when I reset the scene with my wallpaper it reset over and over again. I uninstalled Dolphin and everything went back to normal. I never even got to have a look at Dolphin in action.

    Am I alone in this issue? Any thoughts? I also have Skyfire installed which works perfectly. Can both browsers live on the same device with the default browser?

    Thanks

    The gesture feature is the main reason to choose Dolphin as my browser. It is fast since i am using dolphin Mini. Except Stoke and Dolphin, What are your recommendation?

    It is true that Dolphin HD is better than the stock browser installed by Google.
    In fact, it has more custom design and better performance.
