Dolphin Browser HD is one of the most impressive mobile browsers for Google Android 2.1 and up. It includes a staggering number of features, such as support for browser tabs, gesture-based commands, and browser add-ons.
Version 2.3 of Dolphin Browser HD was released recently, and it includes a number of bug fixes and new features, including:
- You can now install the app to your SD card using Android 2.2
- Android 2.2 users can upload files
- There’s a new gesture for switching tabs
- You can clear HTML5 data from the settings menu
The new version also fixes a bug in fullscreen mode on Android 2.2, and there’s a fix for a Webkit error that had affected Droid X users.
The browser renders web pages at least as quickly as the default Android browser, and switching between open tabs is much faster when you don’t have to launch a separate screen just to see a list of open windows. But it’s probably the plugin support that makes Dolphin really stand out. There are add-ons for doing everything from downloading Flash files from websites to blocking ads, to tracking adjusting the brightness of web pages or receiving notifications of new Google Reader items.
Dolphin Browser HD is available as a free download from the Android Market.
