    I love the speed of the new Dolphin HD brower. Has anyone put it up against the stock Safari browser that would care to give some feedback? I used browser changer yet can get a link from my email app to open into Dolphin. Any idea why that would be?

    Disregard on the link issue - I had selected Dolphin HD in browser changer. Works perfectly after changing to Dolphin.

    To me, it seems faster overall. That is the main reason I prefer it. The tabs get out of your way while browsing and I like the speed dial feature. I also like that you can force desktop mode from the browser instead of clicking somewhere on a site (if it has that available). Give it a shot.

    Dolphin is in my opinion the best browser on iOS. In my opinion its faster than safari. I like how it has something very similar to an automatic full screen mode where once you start scrolling down on a page, the top and bottom navigation bars slide away in a very smooth and beautiful motion leaving only the status bar and a small circular back button. But once you scroll upwards the top and bottom bars reappear so you can fully navigate. You can quickly switch from mobile to desktop mode which is handy. My favorite feature by far is that it has a download feature which I use all the time. Having that and iFile is a match made in heaven. I could go on and on but I agree with the TS, dolphin is an incredible mobile browser. And their customer support is terrific. Twice I emailed them about issues I was experiencing. Both times they responded within 24 hours AND fixed my problems.

    I highly recommend it!

    I think I will, I recently gave Chrome a shot (out of the app store) and while I think its a solid browser, its far slower then Safari.
