    I have noticed when I visit a website on this browser it renders the page very small. I compared it side by side with the regular Dolphin browser that renders pages in normal size. Of course I can pinch zoom but its annoying to have to do that on the hd version,.. am I missing something maybe? Also I cant find youtube on the hd version...hhmmm

    In dolphin browser go to Menu>More>Setting (scroll down)>System settings (scroll down), then uncheck "Open pages in overview." You should be good to go then with the screen size.

    You can also make the font there larger too, and if you want to see more windows tile views of pages you visited, slide your finger on the screen slightly from right to left, that is a kool little feature

    Try the mobile version of Youtube m.youtube.com (do not use www.) Oh and to delete bookmarks you just have to go to your bookmarks screen and long press on a bookmark you want to delete.

    I actually like the regular version of Dolphin better, its just laid out better I think, makes more sense to me, . Does anyone think HD is mush better? if so why ?

    Go to the bookmarks page. Press the bookmark you wish to delete and hold. A pop up window will show up, scroll down to "Delete Bookmark" and press.

    Dolphin browser HD is ok. It does lag a little on the Hero. I still use the stock browser more.

    Yea I tried the dolphin HD, never used any other browser except stock.

    It lags and loads pretty slow for me, not sure if all the other browsers are this way but it really isn't worth having over the stock browser IMO.

    I just downloaded it yesterday so I don't have a lot of time with it yet, but my early thoughts on it mirror yours. I think slower page loads for me. Feels a little sluggish to respond at times. Also no unique feature I find as a "must have". I'll give it a little more time, but my guess is it's getting uninstalled soon.
