Nice beta

The beta is working nice so far. The only thing i would change is flash support. I have been using flash with lots of browsers on jelly bean and it works well(as well as flash can work on mobile) . At least give us the option to turn it on instead of a popup that says no support. I know in the future there may be no support but for now let us enjoy it while we can. Keep up the good work

It does have Flash support. Go to Settings, Web Content, Flash Player. From there you can turn it always on, on demand, or off.

Yeah i had tried that. I just get a message that says something along the lines of no flash for jelly bean 4.1. Not supported in the beta because adobe isnt. Supporting android any longer. It says to switch the user agent to iphone for html 5 video.

Feels pretty nice. I froze the regular Dolphin and am going to try this out as my primary browser, it was easy enough to cloud sync bookmarks between the stable and beta Dolphin browsers.

Chrome is a nice browser but without flash support and custom user agent support I dont use it much. Dolphin allows flash and a custom user agent. Now if only they would allow Flash on JB. It could be disabled by default with a disclaimer notice when you enable it that flash isn't supported. As long as flash support is in the app they should let JB users enable it if they want. I imagine their reasoning is that if flash is unstable it could make the browser unstable causing some to think its Dolphin's fault.

On Gingerbread I get the same html5test.com score as the stock android browser.

Is this a gingerbread limitation (browsers use the same rendering engine)?

Firefox and opera get different scores but they both use engines other than webkit.

Fast to load pages but is INCREDIBLY SLOW to navigate around the page. Very very laggy in pretty much all u.i elements, especially trying to move around on a webpage or zoom in and out. The most important part of a browser to me is the smoothness of the interface and this completely flops in that regard.

Xperia PLAY R800i running CM7 @ 1.2Ghz.

I'm using a tegra 3 htc one x.

I have the version from the market installed also here are my findings.

The beta is faster to load pages.
The beta re-wraps text faster.
The beta is smoother while navigating around the page. (go to the desktop youtube site on both to see the difference).

The address bar animation is smoother on the market verison.
Sometimes two loading bars appear when loading web pages.

I'll get back to you if I spot anything else :good:.
