Dolphin Browser 2.0 for iOS Gets Cloud-Based Bookmarks


Dolphin recently attracted the ire of some of its users when it was discovered that the Dolphin Browser HD had been passing the URL of pretty much every site visited along to the company’s servers. Dolphin quickly reacted by explaining the privacy lapse as an innocent oversight – that the company had no ill will and would disable the Webzine feature at fault. With that controversy dying down, the company is moving on forward, and yesterday announced the availability of version 2.0 of the Dolphin Browser for iOS.

Like the release of 7.0 for Android, this update adds-in support for Dolphin Connect, its cloud-based bookmark sync service. If you were already using it on an Android, you’ll now be able to pull up those same bookmarks on your iPhone.

There have been some refinements made to the browser’s interface, especially with how it interprets gestures. You can now pull up the browser’s sidebar with a swipe off-screen, and a tap on the status bar will quickly jump back up to the top of an article you’re reading.

In light of the recent privacy issues, this release disable the “toggle Webzine” function that had been passing along information on your browsing habits, just as the company had previously taken care of for its Android release.

Beyond those changes, there are a few minor bugfixes included. Dolphin Browser 2.0 is available in Apple’s App Store now.
