Dolphin, a popular third-party browser for Android, updated today with new sharing options, including built-in Evernote clipping so you can reference pages later on through the cloud service, posting to Twitter and Facebook, and best of all, shunting web pages to other devices on your local Wi-Fi network. This includes mobile devices that also have Dolphin Connect-enabled apps installed, as well as desktop browsers that have the right plug-in. That plug-in also enables bookmark syncing, which is always handy. 

As always, Dolphin's biggest differentiator is its plug-in ecosystem and gesture commands for navigating and jumping right to specific pages. You can also execute voice commands, and jump right to your favorite websites with a customized home screen, which are both browser staples at this point. 

Evernote VP of Platform Strategy Seth Hitchings said of the partnership "Web clipping is one of the most popular uses of Evernote on desktop computers and Dolphin has done a fantastic job of bringing that functionality to iPhone, iPad and Andriod." It's a pretty sweet update, especially if you're in the market for something a little different from Chrome. Any takers, or is the built-in Android browser good enough for you?

Dolphin Browser updated with sharing to other devices on Wi-Fi network


For me, Dolphin is WAY better than stock browser!! Gestures are great (esp for share, go to top/bottom, desktop/mobile user agent switch, find on page, etc.)

Also LOVE the speed dial start page, and Dolphin simply renders better than other android browsers I've tried.

No other browser I've tried has been able to beat Dolphin. It's by far the fastest. The desktop/mobile toggle is an awesome thing to have as well.

I didn't like Dolphine early in its development. Recent updates have me wanting to give it a second chance. Chrome and Opera have typically been my go to browsers over we'll see what this update brings and if I'll be using it more often than not.

I stopped using Dolphin a while ago, once I realized how bloated it is. I'd love to go back to it if they actually brought it more inline with other browsers.

It's bloated, but it's also the only browser with LastPass support, to my knowledge. If there's another, I'd love to know.

I'm a big fan of Dolphin but, for the life of me, can't imagine sitting in my living room and saying, "Hey, honey. Here's a great webpage from my phone. let me WiFi it to you!"
