    Love it! Renders faster than the stock browser. The pinch to zoom is great as well as the gesture browsing. Highly recommend it!

    Yeah, the updated version is really nice! Tabs now display correctly and the pinch-zoom is GREATLY improved!

    I like it too. I haven't set it as the default yet, but I try to use it as much as I can.

    Note: if you long-press on the favorites page, you can import your bookmarks from the default browser :)

    I have yet to use the pinch zoom feature. But I have been using the browser and it's actually good.

    I'm sure its just me, but couldn't find Allow use of device location. Is there a way to be more specific about where it is?

    Love this browser - getting ready to make it my default.

    Is there anyway to disable the gesture feature? I actually like having the option of the original zoom lens and the gesture gets in the way

    There is indeed a way to remove the gesture thing in the menu! I never use it either

    And for the guy who neveruses the pinch zoom, its very convenient! I've never used pinch zoom before this so I found it odd at first but realized that I don't have to literally pinch the screen with one hand, I just move me thumbs toward each other slightly and its soooo convenien t



    Also dolphin browser easily replaced the default, and since the update its sooo much better. Beautiful app.

    Where it says gesture button position, and it says right, click it and select hide.

    Although the pinch to zoom is better, I just don't like the way Dolphin looks. And I don't know if it was the update, but it seems to run a little slower than before. I still like the browser but will probably just wait for Firefox.

    I thought it ran a bit smoother, and faster AFTER the update.

    I really want to try out this app. I remember CNET's review of the Droid before it debuted, that it lacked a pinch style movement that iPhone has. Well I guess Droid comes out on top again!! Haha

    Its not in the settings menu of Dolphin, its the settings menu of Google Mobile . . . on the google home page, click settings and then you will see the radio key at the bottom of the page.

    Pre-update, I was able to view webpages in desktop version (espn) instead of the mobile versions.

    Since I've updated dolphin, I'm unable to get the browser to go to desktop versions of webpages instead of the HORRIBLE mobile versions.

    Any ideas?
