Just over three months ago, Dolphin Browser HD for Android hit version 6.0. Today the next major update is arriving, with the release of Dolphin Browser HD 7.0, exclusively through GetJar.
What’s new in 7.0? Version 6.0 introduced the Webzine view to the browser, offering a new, casual way to browse web-based articles. That’s getting a bunch of improvements in this release, including a smoother interface, a viewing mode switcher for jumping from Webzine to a standard or desktop layout, and a featured Webzine section offering the top 16 most popular destinations for use with the mode.
The introduction of Dolphin Connect adds an element of the cloud to your browsing experience, remembering your bookmarks and app preferences even as you switch between smartphones. Dolphin’s hardly the first browser to do so, but it’s still a useful feature if you’re juggling multiple devices.
A customizable gesture interface lets you quickly pull-up frequently visited sites by linking them to a touch movement. Just what motion you’ll use to access which sites is up to you.
For now, the only place to get Dolphin Browser HD 7.0 is GetJar, which has a five-day exclusive on the release. An iOS version is in the works, but no release information is available.
