    Ok, so I have the latest Dolphin update, but now I see when I click on the browser it activates my GPS, and continues to run as long as the browser is open. I want to know if anyone else is experiencing this, and why does the GPS have to run when this browser is open?

    The stock browser does that too, part of googles location based search results,

    if it is related to the google search thing, go to settings -> privacy and uncheck google search can know your location. I don't use dolphin, but on the regular browser, i leave the search on but since i turn gps off, the search just using my network location, not my gps.
