What is Dolphin Engine in Beta?

Dolphin Engine (in Beta) is an improved webkit version with extensive canvas enhancement and behind-the-scenes technology that makes it the highest performing HTML5 browser available today.

What does highest performing mean?

Dolphin has placed particular attention to canvas element, 2D context and text rendering. In addition, Dolphin Engine made significant GPU technology improvements around GPU accelerated canvas rendering and optimized CPU / GPU parallel computing.

How fast? Dolphin Engine’s HTML-5 Rendering is:

5-10X faster than the default Android browser
100% faster than Chrome (at times)
Scored over a 450 when tested on ( is an a respected tool for testing a browser’s support of HTML5)
Try it out our latest version of Dolphin Engine, the behind-the scenes technology that makes this Dolphin Browser the highest performing HTML5 browser.



Android 4.1 support
Faster page Loading and response speed
Stability and improvements for Android 2.3+
Improved Flash support
Improved HTML5 canvas support
Various stability and performance improvement

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.

Is this related to the same company who runs dolphin browser? If yes I don't want anything to do with it.

Installed it on my Sony Xperia S. It froze on first use and I had to reboot the phone. Tried it a second time and it froze again.

I think I'll stick to the original stable version.

And why is that?
