Dolphin Browser, presented by Mobotap, is the most intelligent mobile web browser available that allows you to interact and engage with the web through your mobile device in the easiest, most intuitive way. With Dolphin you can:

  • Gestures
    You can simplify the way you navigate the mobile web without going through complicated clicks. On the bottom menu bar, you can find the gesture button (finger shape), which enables the gesture mode. In gesture mode, you can draw a sign or add a new gesture. For example, in any web site, if you input "v" gesture in the gesture mode, you can go to the bottom of the web site.

  • Speed Dial
    Put favorite sites on Speed Dial. Stop looking around in your bookmarks. Forget about typing out long URL. Just put your favorite sites on Speed Dial.
  • Smart Address Bar
    Smart and effortless browsing by auto-completing URL and context menus When you type the first few characters of a URL, Dolphin auto-complete the URL by displaying all results from both bookmarked items and your browsing history.
  • Bookmark Folder
    We implemented Folder in Bookmark. Now you can organize your bookmarks into different folders, as you currently are doing with your desktop web browsers!
  • Desktop Mode
    Switch between desktop view and mobile view according to your needs Need to view the full site of facebook sometimes on mobile? Dolphin helps you do that.

However, unlike Android, iOS users will notice that add-ons are noticeably absent from the iOS version, which is obviously a result of the current App Store ecosystem. These are typically tweaks that allow users to customize the look and feel of the app. TechCrunch notes that "JavaScript-based add-ons may be on the way" to the iPhone app.

You can download free Dolphin browser from the iTunes App Store.
