Wow, this apk is pretty legit. I can browse desktop sites on my phone with little problems whereas before on previous browsers (stock, opera, chrome): the page would have problems rendering partial frames. I'm on AOKP mtdvibrant.
Very nice! Loading of pages is the fastest I have seen, yet.
Page scrolling on my Nexus One (CM7 Nightly) is still ways behind Opera Mini, but that is not a full-fledged browser so a comparison would not be fair.
Opera Mobile has about the same scrolling smoothness as Dolphin HD so that's that, but stock browser is smooth as a baby's butt for me...would love that for Dolphin as well.
