Dolphin HD 5 to be Demoed at Google IO, Sign Up to Beta Test it!

Our friends behind the ever-popular Dolphin Browser HD are getting ready to show off their new HD V5.0 at Google I/O this week and asked us if we thought our readers would be interested in beta testing it.  Of course our answer was “Yes!” as we know how much all of you looooove testing a new app.  So here is the deal – it’s Dolphin HD 5, will be shown at Google I/O, has better performance, a new UI, and a ton of new features.  If that sounds sweet, then all you have to do is tell Dolphin why you would be an awesome beta tester and they’ll send you a link on May 10 (tomorrow) to start using it.

How to enter:

  • Follow Dolphin on Twitter or become their fans on Facebook
  • Tell them “Why would you be a good Dolphin HD v5.0 beta tester?”, using hashtag #dolphinhd5 and should @dolphinbrowser  if you choose leave message on twitter.
  • According to your reasons, they will pick the most persuasive messages and the corresponding followers or fans to be their beta version testers.
  • Don’t forget to leave your email address to them when you send them the short messages, so that they can contact you directly
  • They will send you the download link around May 10.

More info.

And don’t forget, we are also on Twitter and Facebook.  [shameless]


  • i am now a beta tester but when is the show case i am waiting for the beta link

  • I precisely needed to say thanks once again. I do not know the things that I might have gone through without the entire information provided by you on such a area of interest. This was an absolute terrifying crisis in my view, but being able to see a new well-written style you managed it forced me to jump over happiness. I will be happy for the work and in addition hope that you find out what an amazing job you are undertaking educating the others thru your blog. I’m certain you’ve never met any of us.

  • I prefer Dolphin lite….it’s better than the HD IMO.

  • Stock browser FTW. The last independent benchmarks I saw put Firefox 4 as the winning browser in terms of performance and features. It isn’t lightweight enough for my Droid 1 though :/

    No wonder software updates suck if this is how they get beta testers lol

    Apply just to beta test a mobile browser update? Not even a new browser, but an update? Who cares. Unless it’s something really innovative and groundbreaking, I’m not going to apply to be a free testing guinea pig for you.

    Really!? I need to convince them to allow me to beta test? No thanks.

  • YourMomsLooseTwaht

    They want us to apply to be a beta tester? That takes a lot of nerve. How about you tell me why I should waste me valuable time beta testing your product.

      Haha that’s what I was thinking. It’s just a browser, not some breakthrough innovative app.
