Dolphin Browser HD 7.0

The developers behind the popular Dolphin web browser for mobile devices have released version 7.0 for Android. The key new feature is a cloud synchronization option that lets you sync your bookmarks, gestures, and other preferences across all your phones and tablets.

The new service is called Dolphin Connect and right now it only supports Android — but support for the Dolphin Browser for iPhone and iPad is in the works. Eventually you’ll be able to sync your preferences between an iPad and an Android phone.

Dolphin is one of the most powerful, customizeable browsers for Android. Users can create custom gestures, install add-ons to extend the functionality of the browser, and use the Webzine mode to view some websites in a clean, magazine-style layout.

Dolphin Browser HD 7.0 tweaks the Webzine feature by displaying the 16 most popular channels on the home screen — which kind of suggests to me that I’m not the only person who isn’t really using the Webzine feature and Dolphin is looking for ways to highlight it.

For now Dolphin 7.0 is available exclusively from the GetJar app store. On October 23rd it should go live in the Android Market.
