    Small changes to settings and requested email address after updating.
    Pinch zoom seems slightly better to me.

    It's definitely faster. But the reason to upgrade is the new drop down window shade that allows you to quickly switch between tabs. Pull it down like the notification bar, and you can slide between tabs or close them altogether. It also gives you quick access to the Android notification bar without having to go back to the home page.

    I found this feature by accident -- I did not see it listed on the Dolphin homepage. The only small drawback is that if you try to hit a link at the very top of the page, it will activate the shade. Zooming in gets around that.

    Just made my default browser even better.

    I just installed it. Insisting on giving an email address didn't sit well with me. I just made one up. I'm weird, if it was optional I might have just entered a real one.

    Performance seems better to me, especially pinch to zoom.

    You may want to look at the possible security concern I listed as a post in this forum you can see it here;

    http://androidforums.com/android-applications/179739-dolphin-hd-security-breach.html#post1609715

    I hope it's nothing but I know my company won't let this app be used with the potential of being able to send hidden email copies to a recipient in Germany that wasn't on the original list. I need to get an answer soon. I already have people talking about unnstalling the app.
    Thanks

    Ever since I updated its been weird on zoom and the swipe bars on the side are way more sensitivenow when just trying to navigate web pages. Is there something I should do in settings to fix it? I just turned it off for now

    I turned off the swipe bars a long time ago because they really got in my way.

    The slowdowns when using the stock froyo keyboard while posting in forums has been minimized to almost nothing.
