    I was the first guy in here screaming at the top of my lungs that pinch-zoom (multi-touch) was overrated. I would like to take this opportunity to officially apologize for such a ridiculous statement. Don't get me wrong, I still generally prefer the double tap method for enlarging web pages, but pinch-zoom is absolutely incredible when it comes to selecting web page links! Using double tap I would occasionally "fat finger" the screen and select the wrong link, but with pinch-zoom it is IMPOSSIBLE to do this (for obvious reasons)! So I say this to my fellow Droidians, root your Droid, if for no other reason than to get the Milestone's multi-touch browser! It has multiplied my browsing experience 10x (at least), and it was already great! :icon_ banana:

    One of the reasons I like the Dolphin browser is the occasional need for pinch/zoom. Don't need it often but it does come in handy.

    yea im rooted. I was just thinking... is it worth it at this point... it will be wiped out by the 2.1 update. and then we will have to again wait for the milestone browser from 2.1

    That's the one and only reason I use dolphin browser. The original browser is great IMO, except for the double tap zoom.

    Any benefits of the Milestone browser over Dolphin?

    Actually, I haven't tried the Dolphin browser because I was so impressed with the stock browser, and with multi-touch it's everything that I need!!

    Pinch Zoom is the reason I started using Xscope Browser. It was really a rough beta to begin with, but the dev is making very frequent updates/upgrades and it's better rapidly. I use it exclusively now.

    is what worth it? the process or rooting or getting the milestone browser?

    root access will most likely be patched with the 2.1 update, but you can get there will be a new root method very soon, or even before it is OTA.

    as for the browser, theres no reason it would be wiped. lets say 2.1 comes out, you update it OTA, and you are now running 2.1, but all your apps remain the same. and the milestone browser is just an app.
