#Just after starting#

#When going to any website#

- IP from that website

--------------------------------------------------------


==|Dolphin HD 8.6.1|==

#Just after starting#

- 184.73.86.141 (AMAZON.COM - amazonaws.com - US)
- 65.52.32.12 (Microsoft Corp - US)
- 107.20.57.0 (AMAZON.COM - amazonaws.com - US)

and one more on this IP range type...

- 205.251.242.197 (AMAZON.COM - amazonaws.com - US)
- 205.251.242.165 (AMAZON.COM - amazonaws.com - US)
- 72.21.195.98 (AMAZON.COM - amazonaws.com - US)


#When going to any website#

- IP from that website

--------------------------------------------------------


==|Firefox 14.0.1|==

#Just after starting#

- No Ping


#When going to any website#

- 80.67.92.43 (AKAMAI TECHNOLOGIES US) *
- 93.184.219.20 (EdgeCast Networks - US) *
- IP from that website

* note: not always, most of the times just go to IP website we asked

--------------------------------------------------------


==|Opera 12.0.4|==

#Just after starting#

- No Ping


#When going to any website#

- IP from that website

note: DON'T use Opera Turbo or EVERY single info WILL pass through their servers...

--------------------------------------------------------

It's pretty obvious to me who are the most privacy oriented here...
STAY WAY FROM OPERA MINI AND DOLPHIN MINI AND ALL MINI VERSIONS. They process all info on their server first for speed.

So, just to clarify this, they are collecting statistical information on what sites you visit? Not the data?
Looks like Dolphin use Amazon and Microsoft's cloud services to host their data collecting, which is quite common.
I'd be more worried about the Boat browser, if it's sending stuff to China. Worst country ever regarding espionage.
