Despite challengers across the board in the Android browser space, Dolphin Browser HD remains the one to beat. Here's why.
The stock Android browser is just that; stock and standard and generally very dull indeed. Dolphin Browser HD spices things up for the enticing price of absolutely free, which is its first positive step. Most of its features are the kinds of things you'll find in full desktop browsers, such as full tabbed browsing, gestures to launch specific pages and the like.
There's also some Android specific features, like the ability to only run Flash on demand, use your volume controls as scroll controls and change your user agent. It also doesn't hurt that Dolphin Browser HD looks damned fine as well. [Dolphin Browser HD]
