    Hi

    Which Dolphin Browser should I be running on my rooted HTC Desire running a stock rom?

    What are the differences?

    Many thanks

    Ya, but the question was, what are the differences between Dolphin and Dolphin HD? I, personally, don't know. Sorry.

    dolphin hd is better - but just switched to xscope for better textbox handling - im using opera mobile too :D they all have there plus/minuses imo - shame there isnt one good browser out there - sort of need all 3 combined to be good

    dolphin hd - good swipes for quick use
    xscope -a bit quicker and better textboxes
    opera mobile - very good textbox entry - but poor otherwise

    good luck

    faster for slower phones/connections anyway. opera mobile (beta!!!) is fantastic I think, but seems a lot slower without turbo enabled by default.

    I tried opera mobile and found Turbo slower!
    Focusing on links etc wasn't good. Using xscope now

    for clarification: mobile does *not* use turbo unless you force it to. mini (being the lightweight client) uses it exclusively.

    however if you have a decent connection I completely agree that turbo seems slower. The exception would be if you're *trying* to save bandwidth (tethering, etc) which it does quite well.

    here at home I'm lucky to get ZERO bars, or any connection at all.

    xscope is definitely very fast, but currently i'm too dependent on turbo and especially the built in mobilizer support to switch completely but I'm still testing it out.

    Copied from the Dolphin Browser blog:

    Dolphin Browser is built on 1.6 android platform while Dolphin Browser HD is built on android 2.0 platform. So users with 2.0 above devices can try Dolphin Browser HD, which had powerful add-ons for you to choose.

    I'm new to browsers...what's turbo? I didn't like Dolphin because of the ads that appeared in my Samsung Galaxy.
