Looking for Best Android based browser for mobile device ? Just try Dolphin Browser for Android. Dolphin browser 11.0 is the latest update of Dolphin Browser from Google Play store. This update is released on date : April 15, 2014. Dolphin’s feature set is definitely its strength. In addition to tabbed browsing, bookmarking (that syncs to Google bookmarks), and multitouch zooming, it can also flag sites to read later as well as a tie-in to Delicious. You can search content within a page, subscribe to RSS feeds through Google Reader, and share links with social networks. The capability to download YouTube videos is another plus, as is swiping to switch between open tabs. It also has voice search in the new tab page, and you can choose if Web sites see you as an Android, iPhone, or desktop user. As far as Android browser alternatives go, Dolphin Browser (formerly Dolphin Browser HD) was a trailblazer when it launched with a laundry list of features, like gestures and custom User Agents that let you load mobile or desktop versions of websites. A couple years later, most of Dolphin’s competitors have caught up feature-wise, and Google keeps its stock browser the most standards-compatible.

I ran a quick test. I wanted to find out if the Nexus 7 was for sale on Ebay so I simply said “Ebay Nexus 7″ and it took me straight to Ebay’s search results for Nexus 7. Perfect.
Favorite Add-ons :
Dolphin has a strong set of thoughtful add-ons to enhance your mobile browsing experience. For instance, I thought Dolphin’s new Webzine feature would be superfluous, but it’s now the first thing I open after launching Dolphin. Webzine aggregates online publications onto one page in a series of thumbnails. You tap a thumbnail to scroll through the publication’s news feed, which displays titles and summaries in boxes.
Dolphin Battery Saver is an easy way to extend your juice by giving you the most energy-conserving settings, like auto-dimming and screen timeouts.
I also added Evernote, a screengrabber (handy on devices running anything below Android 4.0 and can’t even take screenshots), WiFi Charger, Web to PDF convertor, the LastPass password manager, and a couple Web games. Most brand-name apps that have add-ons support Dolphin as well.
I really wish Dolphin’s add-on page had a search bar so I don’t have to scroll through them all. Also, I wasn’t able to successfully uninstall add-ons within the browser itself. They just kept reappearing in my process tree. In the end I went through my stock Android setting to uninstall the add-ons.
- Pros:Intuitive interface. Supports LastPass password manager, Evernote, screengrab taker. Syncs to Google bookmarks. Supports voice- or gesture-based navigation.
- Cons : No desktop version. Slower than stock Android browser
- Bottom Line : Dolphin Browser 8.8 isn’t the fastest Android browser in Google Play, but the latest version retains its Editors’ Choice designation for balancing performance with a thoughtful collection of mobile add-ons.
Best Balance of Features and Performance
Dolphin Browser isn’t the fastest browser for Android devices, but it manages to strike a fine balance between features and performance, and therefore remains our Editors’ Choice for Android browsers. There are plenty of cool add-ons to explore, from the useful ones like LastPass and Evernote, to the more inane ones like an app that converts photos of women’s clothing into “see-through clothing” or a poker game. But more importantly, Dolphin is snappy and relatively fast for such a powerful, feature-rich browser. If speed is your holy grail, check out Chrome for Android or simply stick to the stock Android browser.
