    Major 5.0 upgrade to Dolphin HD released today.

    Lots of design changes.

    I've been a Dolphin HD user and it looks great and works great.

    For me, I find that using gestures to get to my bookmarks, close tabs and move between tabs makes it very quick to get around.

    Would love to hear everyone's thoughts on the update.

    They have new themes for 5.0.

    May just not be updated in the market yet.

    I was going to make a new topic to ask some questions about Dolphin HD, but I might as well just ask them here. I liked a lot of things about the previous version of Dolphin HD, but I just wasn't a fan of the big toolbar at the top (I know, once you scroll down, it doesn't matter, but still). I don't really do much tabbed browsing on my phone (on my desktop computer, yeah, but not on my phone). Is there any way to remove (or hide) the tabs, and just have the URL bar, home button, etc.?

    Secondly, how exactly do you change the home page (the page the browser opens by default when you first run the app)? I couldn't figure it out in the previous version, still not sure how to do it now.

    I'm not sure if it's new, but I like that quick links home page kind of thing. My question is, is there any way to rearrange them? When I long press any of them, my only options seem to be "Edit" and "Delete". Do I have to delete all of them and manually re-add them in the order I want them to be in...?

    Like the UI update...cleaner than previous, much better.

    Still not the speediest launcher...Opera is fastest, but doesn't have a usable "fit screen" view (their mobile view option is a mess) and every page you open goes back to full page load and you have to re-zoom. But I digress. :)

    Overall a nice update to Dolphin...worth trying.

    Here's how you change the homepage in 5.0.

    Menu>Bookmarks>Quick Acess>Bookmarks> Select what page you want and long press> make homepage.

    That will only work of you bookmarked the page you want to be your home page.

    Menu - more - settings - data storage settings - set home page.

    Finally! Thank u for the post. I've been waiting for an update because the last dolphin release was the worst in regards to speed and stability, IMO.
