New UI design and Home Screen:
The new interface of Dolphin browser is now more smooth, responsive and quick. Better touch and gesture control enhances its quality. The main screen (see in the pictures below) with large icons looks very clean and flattened.
Now from the Home screen, if you swipe the screen from left to right you’ll see a side screen with BOOKMARKS option on the top and just under it there’ll be a HISTORY option. You’ll also see a list of some other famous sites like Wikipedia, YouTube etc. By pressing the setting option (Gear symbol) at the top right corner you can change the websites from the list of side screen. There’s also a synchronize option at the top left of the side screen where you can Sign in to Dolphin Connect to sync web content across all your devices.
Now if you swipe from left to right, you’ll see Full Screen (to go to Full Screen mode), Color Splash (discussed below) and WIFI BROADCAST options. WIFI BROSDCAST option is a sharing option. You can share a page with your friend if both of you are using same WiFi network.
There is a “Most visited” folder on the home screen which keeps the sites you visit mostly.
You’ll see a Dolphin Key at the bottom all the time while using the browser. If you tap that key than three options will appear: browser menu, tab list and gestures. Just swipe in the direction of option you want to select.
Web App Store:
The new web app store is different from the “Hot Apps” app store which is pinned on the home screen by default. The apps are listed according to the categories like popular, special etc. There’s also a search option for apps. There are more than 200 HTML5 apps which can be added as shortcuts to the home screen by simply dragging and dropping.

Whenever you search for something or enter any URL in the search bar, small shortcuts for Amazon, YouTube etc. will appear above the keyboard. These shortcuts can be managed from Settings>Search Engine.
The default search engine can also be changed by tapping on the Google icon.
The Flash support can also be disables or enabled from Settings>Web Content>Flash Player. But Adobe Flash apk need to be installed on your device.
Themes for dolphin browsers can be accessed from “Color Splash” option. Just swipe the home screen from right to left. And you’ll find that option. Tap the Color Splash option, a “THEMES” page will appear. Now tap on “Get More Themes” and you’ll be directed to a page where you can find some themes with different colors. The updated version can be found in the Play Store.
You will not see any option of Night Mode for the dolphin browser. You’ll have to download it from the play store. Swipe the home screen from right to left and then tap on “+” sign at the top right corner. You’ll be directed to a page showing different Dolphin Add-ons you can add. The first Add-one you’ll see is “Night Mode For Dolphin Browser”. Open it and tap on “Get it” button. You’ll be directed to the Play Store from where you can install it.
So overall, this new update Dolphin Browser has really lived up to my expectations. The new features have really made it easier for the users to perform various functions. MoboTap always bring something new and better on every update of Dolphin Browser and this clearly describe the reason behind that why 843,674 users rated this browser with 5 Star.
