Dolphin browser, which is one of the most popular browsers on smartphone, has now made its way into the Android tablets. Earlier, the Dolphin browser that was originally incepted for the smartphones was being used on tablets but now tablet users get their own version of the browser, the Dolphin for Pad v1.
Although still in beta phase, the Dolphin browser aims at bringing all the functionality that was available in the smartphone variant and a handful of more things as well since the screen space win tablets is in abundance.
The beta version of the browser brings along add-ons for a more personalised experience for the user. It also includes the multi touch based smart gestures making navigation fun. The inclusion of multi-touch interface is quite helpful for pinch-to-zoom function, with two fingers, for zooming on to a text or picture – quite a nifty feature especially when the web pages have loads of text.
Besides, users can have unlimited tabs which are hidden at all times to conserve space but can be accessed by a swipe towards the right. Another swipe towards the left opens up the bookmarks toolbar.
The Dolphin tablet browser also includes a smart address bar that completers the address field or suggests the users, basing upon the keywords entered in the address bar. Its user agent feature allows users to switch between mobile view and desktop view of the websites to give more convenience to the users.
The dolphin for pad v1.0 beta is available for download on the Android Marketplace and it is a free to use application with compatibility for all devices running Android Honeycomb 3.0 and above. Users can also follow the direct link to download this application on their devices.
