Dolphin Browser claims it is the most popular third-party mobile browser on the planet, and with its huge feature list we’d be loathe to disagree.
Its recent version adds a few notable features to its iPhone, iPad and Android versions, namely Evernote Web Clipper support. This extension has been found until now on desktop browsers and allows the user to save the contents of a website to his or her Evernote account with one click. It’s also possible to highlight a particular area of the page and save just the relevant content, too.
Dolphin has also expanded its Connect service to allow for syncing between devices. This means that all saved data such as bookmarks and browser history — along with any desired web page such as map directions or recipes — can be pushed to other devices or the web. Dolphin has made available desktop extensions for Chrome, Safari and Firefox, so the encroachment on the major players, particularly Chrome, is notable.
MoboTap, the company that purchased Dolpin Browser, has also added one-tap sharing to popular social networks (too much sharing!) and users can even broadcast favourite web pages over a shared WiFi connection.
