    Just recently I have had problems with the dolphin browser. When I try to use it all it shows is that it is loading. It takes forever, no matter where I am, and, eventually, it never loads.
    The standard browser loads fast with no problems.
    Is there something I can do with the dolphin settings or is it a dolphin browser issue?

    Change your default start page, it's the dolphin start page that causes it to hang.

    no problem, in dolphin 2.0 go to settings, then system settings, select "set home page", unfortunately you have to type in the url. After that exit dolphin and restart. you should be good to go.

    Multi-Touch, tabs, downloading different filetypes, faster page rendering. Check out xScope also, it's lite and speedy.

    I really liked (and still like) the Dolphin browser, especially in comparison to the default Droid browser. But I have to say that having used xScope for a couple of weeks, I almost never use anything else. Its speed and features have won me over almost completely.

    Should note, though, that one of the most enjoyable aspects of the Droid is the competition among vendors of similar applications. With the exception of one update for Dolphin that introduced some bugs and was rapidly fixed by the developers, I've enjoyed using it. Hopefully, the pressure of xScope and other browsers will continue to raise the standard.

    I really appreciate the help. I changed the settings for dolphin to open up with Google.com.
    So, basically what this does is open the browser with Google as my start page and utilizes dolphin's browser tools and applications. Right?
