Yes Dolphin is faster then Safari, the down side to using it is there is no option to set as default browser.
Out of curiosity I decided to see if your claim of Dolphin being a faster browser is true and ran the BrowserMark bench tool on both.
Higher is better in this bench test.
Safari scored a 99114
Dolphin scored a 54779
Not only did Safari beat Dolphin, it completely destroyed it.
Why is safari so much faster than all the app store browsers? I tested atomic, icab, and mercury on browsermark and safari got almost twice the numbers they did. I love the gestures / features on the others but safari is so much faster
Also hide some other APIs, e.g. Most third-party browser lags when scrolling. Not developer's fault.
Um, maybe just Android?Apple can "thank" their own stubborness if more and more people goes for Win8 / Android instead.
