    Hello everyone and Happy New Year!

    I am having trouble using the "gestures" feature of Dolphin for Android (so far, I have ENABLED the feature; however, I can't USE it because I can't figure out how to turn it ON!)

    Apparently, in order to turn on the gestures feature, one must "toggle the dolphin key" (the one that turns green, in the bottom corner of the screen)... so that when you touch it, the green "gestures" button appears, and you can just drag your finger from the dolphin over to the "gestures" button.

    Right now when I touch the dolphin, I can see green 3 buttons ("menu", "sonar", and "tabs"), but there is no "gestures" button.

    So, how do I make it so that I can see the green "gestures" button? Can we only see 3 buttons at once, so that I will have to replace one of the other 3 with the "gestures" button?

    I've heard that Dolphin is such a great browser and am excited about using gestures, but I'm buffaloed this time! Thanks so much for your help! :)

    If you check the help (or use sonar) you'll see that it seems to be a feature on the iPhone that, maybe, they haven't ported to Android yet. I use the browser, but I don't use gestures.

    Click the icon that looks like a microphone then you will be taken to a new screen. On the New screen move the small switch at the bottom-middle of the screen from the right to the left with your finger.

    Also, if you know of a great online/downloadable User Guide for Dolphin, I'd much appreciate learning where it is!

    cheers, and Happy New Year
