Multi-Touch Comes to Motorola Droid Via Third-Party Browser

With the Droid lacking pinch-and-zoom multitouch capabilities on its gorgeous 3.7-inch 16:9 FWVGA capacitive touchscreen at launch, a third-party software maker has released the Dolphin Browser–available for free on Android Market on your Android phone–to bring multi-touch implementation to the Droid on Verizon Wireless.

In my experience playing with the Dolphin Browser, pages rendered relatively fast and text automatically reflowed to fit in the screen’s width so you don’t have to pan left and right when zoomed in. The browser does its job–and does it well to bring multi-touch to Android–but doesn’t feel as natural as Mobile Safari on the iPhone. The reason for this seems to be that instead of really “pinching” to zooming, the Dolphin Browser seems to pivot on one finger and uses the other finger to zoom.
