    I use dolphin, dxtop, and taskiller and have not seen any changes to my battery life. Maybe your browser was open on something that drained your battery.

    did you check the battery usage on the phone to see if any apps stand out as the culprit? That should tell you if it is indeed an app.

    you'd think that if the screen goes to sleep and dolphin was active before it did, that it would not remain running. I'm not sure what purpose the browser has in that idle state, unlike something like an IM client that you always want to receive notificaitons for. I think i'll run a test now and see if dolphin taxes the system while asleep.

    some sites will auto refresh (MSNBC for one) if the browser was left open it may have done a refresh say every 20 min or so.

    I had almost exactly the opposite happen. My battery was getting such good life out of it I stopped using the task killer to see how it would work out. It's much improved. That goes without saying though, pre-update my phone would drain overnight in standby. It doesn't do that anymore without even killing tasks.

    I have not noticed an improvement in the battery. I was ending the day around 20% and I'm still ending the day around 20%...

    Ive had my droid for a few days now, and i really am dissapointed with battery life. With no bluetooth, no wifi, and screen on lowest setting, apps closed with advance task killer. i really cant get my battery to last even a half day. And i dont really use it much. Am i missing something?

    These are all good battery settings to use when trying to conserve, I too had some serious concerns about the battery life when I first got the DROID as well however, the more I let it die and charge again it got better and better. I can go a full day with heavy usage or a day and a half with light usage. GPS can really drain your battery quick also as I'm sure you already know, anyhow hang in there and see if your battery life improves at all. If not return it for a new one!
