Dolphin Pad Released as the Next Big Android Tablet Browser

The folks over at Dolphin just released the tablet version of their incredibly popular 3rd party Android browser titled, Dolphin Pad.  It’s free, has tabbed browsing, gestures, add-ons, multi-touch, swipe-able sidebars (bookmarks and current tabs), quick User Agent settings, themes, on-demand Flash, and so much more.  I’m not the biggest fan of the stock Honeycomb browser with all of its glorious lag and stuttering, so this couldn’t be more welcomed.  After just a few minutes of time with it, I’d be willing to say that the Dolphin team has put together another winner.

    I simply desired to appreciate you yet again. I am not sure the things that I might have accomplished in the absence of the entire tips discussed by you on such a concern. It absolutely was a real challenging condition in my position, but encountering the skilled approach you resolved that took me to jump for joy. I’m just grateful for this work and in addition sincerely hope you find out what an amazing job you happen to be undertaking instructing the rest by way of your web page. Most likely you have never come across any of us.

      I just paid $22.87 for an iPad2-64GB and my girlfriend loves her Panasonic Lumix GF 1 Camera that we got for $38.76 there arriving tomorrow by UPS. I will never pay such expensive retail prices in stores again. Especially when I also sold a 40 inch LED TV to my boss for $675 which only cost me $62.81 to buy. Here is the website we use to get it all from, to.ly/aPXP

    Have had Dolphin 5 on my Thunderbolt since I got it and generally loved it; Dolphin 6 on my Transformer pad has been a bit glitchy (weird spacing issues in text boxes making webmail very hard to use, for one)… hopefully this works smoother. :)

    God this is sexy!
    …mostly cus it looks like chrome tho

    After 30 seconds of use, I’m sold.  This is significantly better than the stock browser.

    DOES HULU WORK?

    • Terrance Steiner

      Doubtful.  I have been using the regular Dolphin on my Transformer for a while and Hulu blocks that.  I do not see any reason why this version should work with it….just an FYI, tv.com does work on my Transformer (or at least it did last time I tried it).  Just make sure your user client is set to Desktop.

    Hell yeah

    What is wrong with the stock tablet browser? I’ve never had one issue with it.

    • http://www.droid-life.com Tim-o-tato

      It’s not that there is anything wrong with it. There is a lot more features with 3rd party browsers. That’s all :)

      • Mctypething

        If it will load desktop versions of websites by default, that will be huge. It’s so annoying that the stock Honeycomb browser doesn’t do that. Okay, so I guess I have had an issue with it. Oops.

        • Burl

          Go to the browser settings menu and change User Agent to Desktop

      I find it less stable than Margot Kidder off her meds.  I gave been using Dolphin HD scaled on the Xoom so this release has been long awaited.

      I’ve only had like 800 issues with it. Force closes constantly, opens links in new tabs without the user or the website asking, zooms instead of scrolling, won’t register clicks, immense lag when entering form fields..

    Sweet! Looking forward to trying it out on my Tab.

    How is this better than stock, exactly?  Just curious.

    Flash on demand? What does that mean?

    • http://twitter.com/mfg68 MFG

      It means you have the option to load Flash on a website only if you want to by clicking on it. It then loads. Flash On Demand can help website loading times.

        stock browser can do this.. at least in gingerbread.. dunno about HC.  

        options -> load plugins -> on demand

        • John

          make that settings -> enable plug-ins -> on demand..

          got my terminology mixed up

      It means it’s not an iPad… :-)

    does it load desktop versions of website by default?

    • Anonymous

      You can set it to during initial setup.  You can also switch it back to Android, iPhone, iPad or whatever very easily.

        Yeah I think the big plus here is the side by side settings area. They can really make use of the extra space and have an easy to navigate settings menu.

    • Stephen D

      No. But you can go into settings and change the user agent to desktop. Then, everything will load as the desktop version by default. 

    • John

      You can’t do this in honey comb?

      in browser type “about:debug”

      then go to options -> UA string -> change it to desktop or whatever
