    Dolphin slowed my phone down too much... huge memory leaks due to unnecessary services running not worth a buggy pinch-to-zoom for me. Uninstalled, double-tap works fine for now.

    Download xScope - It's a new one. VERY basic but it has the true pinch zoom that the iphone has.

    Just tried xScope. It's better than Dolphin--it's true zooming, rather than animation.

    Still jerky and slow (the zooming); the Droid can do much better than this. Great start though.

    Hmm just dled the newest version of xscope and the pinch zoom works almost as good as the iPhone. Alas no other aspect of the browser is half decent. I say this as Im currently browsing on Dolphin.

    xScope seems to have the zoom/navigation thing nearly down. Pinch zooming is the best on the Droid so far, though not quite as snappy as on the iPhone.

    I'd just wish its double-tap zoom auto-zoomed to the width of the text like on the iPhone (or like how the Droid default browser forces the width of the text to match the zoom).

    But otherwise, if it got attached to a decent browser system (tabs/windows, bookmarks), xScope would be the best Droid browser. Perhaps the dev for xScope should hook up with the dev of one of the other browsers.

    Dolphin is laggy and doesn't pinch zoom in mobile pages, only full sized. I uninstalled it today.

    THIS ^

    Some people say it wouldn't help, but compare the iPhone's keyboard to the Droid's. They are largely comparable, but speed on the iPhone's is much better, not because the iPhone's keyboard has bigger buttons or better placement, but because you aren't slowed down by single touch input restraints.

    Ok so as a programmer, what area would you start to begin coding dual touch capabilities? I thought this phone only had a single touch plane of x and y?

    It would be nice if the droids buttons where a hair bigger at least, might make it alittle easier to type on... not that i'm have too much trouble.
