    Browser looks good so anyone wanting pinch to zoom in the browser should be happy I will have to play more but I personally love the double tap.

    Downloaded. Trying it out. Although I completely agree with you jjenson, having options is nice.
    What would be best is if you could have options for either in the default browser.

    Just tried it out. Multi touch does work, but it is not as clean and polished as the other browser (As would be expect, i know). It is fast, faster then the BB browser for sure, but it was not as fast as the original browser for me.

    I felt the same way.

    i think it works pretty well, generally pretty quick for me, definitely needs some polish, especially in the UI department, everything looks low res and i don't like that all the icons have no text labels, as clicking on stuff becomes a trial and error session until you memorize what all the icons stand for.

    i made it the default browser on mine for now though, i'll give it some time to try it out

    Has potential, like others have said just needs some polishing. I do like the gestures for commands.

    Has a lot of potential honestly. I do agree it's not as polished but this is a small developer working on it so props to him. Should be interesting to see where he can take it.

    Double tap is nice. People always want what they can't have though.

    Since using the Droid as my main phone I've gotten used to the double tap as well. I guess some people think the more options, the better.

    Pinch zoom is nice fo zoom in on pics, where double tap isn't quite as nice. The only example I can think of is zooming in on pics, since the first double tap zooms in, 2nd zooms back out. Pinch zoom you can zoom in further (well, also good for text boxes and making selections bigger). It's nice to have both options. I'll use both browsers.

    ah, text selection would be much much better on multitouch. thats what i can look forward too! i can see your point on pics, but its still so rarely used for me that its not a huge issue. i think ill try out the browser and see how it works. coming from a blackberry all i used was BOLT.

    I just recently installed the dolphin browser and i love it ! one problem though. I want to save pictures from the internet to use as wallpapers and I dont know how.. In the default browser it is a lot easier since all I have to do is long press the picture and voila.. picture saved!! Can anyone show me the step in order to save pics from the dolphin browser? Thanks...

    It is the same with dolphin. Long press and a wheel will popup, move to "Picture" then there is an option to save it

    ive been using dolphin for over a month now and have not even opened up the stock browser since then. dolphin updates often and i dont see myself ever using anything other than it.

    Hey guys, what is the reason why someone would upgrade to the paid version of Dolphin? I just installed the free version and like it so far. Just for multitouch on the browswer it is worth using to me.

    One, it removes the ads and
    Two, it's such a vast improvement over the stock browser that the developers deserve a small reward.

    IMHO, $4.99 is a small price to pay to keep development going. I do believe they would get a LOT more people to pay at $2.99 or less...
