    Latest Tech News - Dolphin dives into iPhones

    Latest Tech News - Dolphin dives into iPhonesGestures on the new Dolphin Browser for iPhone.

    (Creditolphin)
    The Dolphin Browser made a name for itself onAndroid, carving out a space as a zippy alternative to the default browser while rapidly building a robust feature set. Dolphin for iPhone, released today, brings most of those features toiPhone owners. The most notable one, gesture-based browsing, makes it the only iPhone browser to support custom gestures.

    Another interesting feature that Dolphin brings to the iPhone is its Webzine. It's the browser's in-house version of the streamlined, ad-free reading experiences that turn multipage stories on the web into a single vertical flow. Webzine includes works on more than 120 "channels," based on the sites' RSS feeds.

    The browser bakes in a lot of tools that other browsers require you to reach for add-ons to get. The Twitter icon allows you to share via Facebook or Twitter, tabbed browsing replicates the popular desktop browsing option, and the built-in desktop agent allows you to force a site to render in its standard desktop view. There's also the Speed Dial, for quick one-tap access to your most regularly-visited Web sites.

    Unfortunately, Dolphin faces the same restrictions that other third-party browsers suffer on iOS. There's no way to change your system's default browser, and unlike on Android--where the default browser faces stiff competition from Firefox, Skyfire, Dolphin, and other rapidly-developing alternatives--you can't change the default browser from Safari to another app. That means that even if you use Dolphin for all your self-initiated Web browsing, opening links from other apps will always return to Safari. Also, iPad users are out of luck, as the browser has yet to be optimized for thetablet.
