Dolphin Browser is one of the most popular mobile browsers to date. Last October, they celebrated 50 million users by adding some fun new add ons. This last update is a bit more extensive and includes many new features.
The big one everyone is talking about is Evernote Web Clipper. According to Engadget, Dolphin Browser will be the first to incorporate Evernote’s new feature. It lets you annotate and tag websites on the fly, which can be pretty useful.
In addition, Dolpin Browser has added Dolphin Connect support. It comes as an add on for the most popular web browsers, including Chrome, Firefox, and Safari. Using the addon, you can send any web page to your Dolphin browser on your mobile device. It also syncs things like bookmarks, passwords, and more. This is very similar to Google Chrome’s feature where if you log into Google Chrome itself, it’ll sync all your web info between devices.
The new sharing features are pretty standard, but allow better access. You can share with your Facebook and Twitter friends on the fly, as usual. Dolphin took it a step further and now people on the same WiFi connection can share sites instantly among one another.
Are these new features revolutionary or is Dolphin Browser just catching up to the competition?
It’s a little of column A and a little of column B. As noted, the syncing features are something Chrome users have been enjoying for awhile already. It’s nice to see more than one browser capable of doing that. Many still use the old import and export bookmarks method. The Evernote Web Clipper is something no other browser has, but it will make its way to other browsers eventually.
If you’re a Dolphin Browser fan, the app just got a whole lot nicer. If you’re on something else, it might be work checking out these new features. Has anyone given the new Dolphin Browser stuff a try yet?
