    Is it only in the 2.1 Android market? There's only regular dolphin here on 1.5.

    I installed it a lil bit ago and it seemed pretty impressive.

    Yeah, I witched from Dolphin to Dolphin HD and I am really impressed. I like the add ons and the themes we can use. It seems to run smoother now too.

    Always used the standard dolphin browser and when I switched to this one it blew my mind on how smoothly it runs barely any lag.

    I've messed with it a little more and I totally agree. It really makes the browser like a windows desktop... Very user friendly

    Is there any way to disable the pullout menu that comes from the right? I browse Google Images all the time and when I swipe to the left to change pictures, that pullout comes out.

    Also, does ANY Flash video load for you?

    Are you talking about the "Gesture" menu?


    And when a video comes up... it gives me several options.

    Ohhhh, he's referring to the swiping option that when you swipe in either direction your open tabs will appear so you can change tabs easily

    I'm unsure if that part is removable but it's not that big of a deal for me, personally.

    this browser is pretty nice but my only complaint is the time it takes to load pages. Other than that its great. Once the speed is fixed I could see myself using it daily. Its a hard decision because the 2.1 rom I'm on has flash in the browser and this doesn't. This is much better than skyfire and opera in my opinion.

    irrelevant to the subject, but are your contacts synced to your facebook with this rom? i have this rom as well but my contacts can't sync for some reason.

    i downloaded this browser and it the pages load just as fast as the stock browser. kudos!

    I am currently using Aloyisus which is based on DamageControl and my contacts synced with facebook just fine. Then again, I have never had an issue with mine not syncing right away. If you have some spare time do a backup of your current ROM and flash Aloyisus and see if your contacts come through or if you still have this problem.

    Im using Dolphin HD right now. I like it but it still have issues:
    -Page loading is slow when compared to the regular one.
    -The bookmarks tool didnt worked for me. Export from Dolphin worked but it could not read the html in Dolphin HD.
    -What happened to the tap-and-hold popup menu??? How do I open a link in a new tab now?
    -Pinch to zoom is a lot smoother now but sometimes it click on links when releasing the touch and sometimes it zooms in and back out by itself...


    Things I like:
    -The theme implementation
    -Pluggins! Nice...
    -The new GUI
