If you ask me what’s a popular app to download from the Android Marketplace, I will definitely suggest Dolphin Browser. The smooth transitions, clean interface and soothing colour scheme are the things I look at when it comes to browsers.
Good news to iPhone users as the popular browser is now available on the App Store!
Dolphin Browser, presented by Mobotap, is the most intelligent mobile web browser available that allows you to interact and engage with the web through your mobile device in the easiest, most intuitive way.
What makes Dolphin better than others?
You can simplify the way you navigate the mobile web without going through complicated clicks. On the bottom menu bar, you can find the gesture button (finger shape), which enables the gesture mode. In gesture mode, you can draw a sign or add a new gesture. For example, in any web site, if you input “v” gesture in the gesture mode, you can go to the bottom of the web site.
Bring out the beauty of the web and with Dolphin Webzine users can experience the web like never before.
✓ Tabbed browsing
Real tabbed browsing. Feel like you are on a desktop. Add tabs within Dolphin just like you would on a desktop.
We implemented two side bars for you to access Bookmark and Tool Bar without going through complicated clicks; you can access Tool Bar simply by swiping from the right edge of iPhone screen to left. You can access Bookmark simply by swiping from the left edge of iPhone screen to right.
✓ Speed Dial
Put favorite sites on Speed Dial. Stop looking around in your bookmarks. Forget about typing out long URL. Just put your favorite sites on Speed Dial.
✓ Smart Address Bar
Smart and effortless browsing by auto-completing URL and context menus When you type the first few characters of a URL, Dolphin auto-complete the URL by displaying all results from both bookmarked items and your browsing history.
✓ Bookmark Folder
We implemented Folder in Bookmark. Now you can organize your bookmarks into different folders, as you currently are doing with your desktop web browsers!
✓ Desktop Mode
Switch between desktop view and mobile view according to your needs Need to view the full site of facebook sometimes on mobile? Dolphin helps you do that.
Upon launching the browser, an overlay tips guides user with the off screen menus:
Swipe from left to right – bookmarks
Swipe from right to left – options
Another great feature I like is the ability to set gestures for different actions. Say I set the handwriting letter ‘d’ for discovrpOp. The next time I draw the ‘d’ on the gesture screen, discovrpOp will be launched.
Screen on the right shows the gesture compose screen. Full screen view on the right.
