The Dolphin browser has long been regarded as one of the best alternative Android browsers for its support of gestures, add-ons, Webzine, and swipe-to-switch tabs. Released today, Dolphin HD 7 (download) adds synchronization to that list. Like Firefox for Android and Opera Mobile for Android, which were the first Android browsers to gain syncing powers, the feature leverages data hosted in the cloud. Called Dolphin Connect, it lets you line up identical browsing preferences, bookmarks and gestures on all your Android devices running Dolphin.
Unlike Firefox, though, there's no desktop counterpart for Dolphin. Also, Dolphin Connect won't work yet in the iOS version of the browser, although it is being worked on.
Another big change in Dolphin 7 has been to the Webzine feature that emphasizes the Dolphin community's 16 most popular Webzine channels on the home screen as an alternative to the Speed Dial feature. Webzine also has undergone a visual refresh to simplify the interface and make it easier to jump between Webzine, mobile, and desktop site rendering via a location bar button.
