    Default hesitant to upgrade to 4.4

    I had a previous Moto X that I returned because of some physical damage when I received the phone. When I upgraded that to 4.4, Dolphin browser got choppy scrolling. On 4.2, Dolphin (and other webkit browsers?) were really smooth.

    I now have a new Moto X still on 4.2. I'm hesitant to upgrade because I like the smooth scrolling web browsers. Does anybody know if they've restored Dolphin or other webkit browsers to their former glory?

    Lots of recent updates to many many apps including Dolphin! I have used Dolphin for several years. Driving Chrome on the M.X however so far. I have Dolphin loaded but have found Chrome OK! Drove Smart Keyboard Pro for several years also, but I am now using the stock M.X keyboard. Just enjoying the M.X like it was made!

    Everything good on the M.X is happening via KitKat!

    Eh, I guess I'll have to make the jump at some point. The Dolphin Google Play reviews are not giving me confidence though.

    Chrome is just not smooth for me. Even on the Nexus 5 's that I tried.

    Dolphin works fine on my Moto X running 4.4. I use it all the time.

    I did have to update a few apps after I got 4.4, because it broke a few of them. (I especially remember issues with K9). I was happy that Sprint was a few weeks later than other carriers to upgrade to 4.4, because all the problems I ran into had already been fixed, and a few app updates later, everything I used worked smoothly. I don't recall if Dolphin was one of the apps I updated.

    (I tend to feel "if it ain't broke, don't fix it", and often don't update apps unless I see a strong reason to.)

    Finally upgraded and Dolphin is much improved from my experience before! It's better than ever. Thanks all.

    The only thing I miss on 4.4 is the blue theme. White just seems boring :/

    Just tried the Jetpack toggle on Dolphin. Jeebus! Scrolling is nearly perfect. Don't know why they don't turn it on by default or advertise it more.
