Does Dolphin5 have GPU acceleration? Only Opera has been having the GPU acceleration and that was why it was so much faster and smoother.

Would be nice if the application icon was the same color as the theme when you change it.

I like how the bookmarks and settings are accessed by shifting the webpage left or right. I would like to have more theme options, like a Dark or Honeycomb-like design.

There's one caveat though; webpages kinda re-draw themselves when they are scrolled. They should be fully rendered so the experience will be better.

Loving it on my Droid. Best yet.

But the Honeycomb stock browser still wins because of the Quick Controls. I wish Dolphin would add navigation buttons to the right side slideout menu since there's all that room on a tablet. It'd be just as good as quick controls IMHO.

No text reflow after pinch to Zoom on SGS2.

It was a great function on HTC Devices in Std Browser. Opera mobile also supports this.
