    I haven't used Dolphin for a very long time....

    Why don't you just use the stock browser with multi-touch from the Milestone? It is SO smooth with absolutely NO lagging whatsoever

    did you follow the instructions by the developer?

    Don't update. You must uninstall, then install a fresh new copy.

    I followed the directions to uninstall/reinstall and have no issues with forced closes.

    I do have issues with finding the stuff I need and figuring out how to do what I need to do. I know this app has been the target of some very intense criticism over the last couple of weeks, and it appears the developer issued this update at least in part in response to that criticism. Unfortunately, I liked the UI that others were complaining about. I would have preferred the developer stay the course, but looks like it's too late for that now and I will have to adapt.

    I'm surprised that nobody ever talks about the gesture interface in this app. Does the stock browser have gesture support? Does xScope? It seems like the gesture interface tends to get lost in the heated arguments about pinch zoom.

    Of course not, and watch as he goes on to rant about having to read before hitting the update button. lol.

    It's a shame really. I knew that a lot of the recent criticism, much of which was pretty scathing, was unjustified, but I didn't speak up in defense of the developer. Now stuff has been moved all around and I'm having a hard time figuring out a consistently reliable and repeatable way of getting to my bookmarks. Just goes to show that if you don't speak up when people are unfairly beating up on a developer, you may find the app changed for the worse.

    Griz, thanks. I simply updated without reading into it. I agree completely with your gestures comment. I also liked the interface and so far am disappointed with the update, especially since I lost my bookmarks. But then again its only been a few minutes since I got it working and its still better than the stock browser.

    Do you mean eliminate it as in wipe it off the device, or eliminate it as in undermining the demand for Dolphin by providing pinch zoom in the stock browser?
