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 HTML5test.com. (HTML5test.com 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.

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.

Randomly freezes loading sites for me.. I certainly don't have to reboot my phone, about 15-20 seconds later Android offers the FC/Wait dialog.. Tried it 4-5 times, sometimes it loads a few pages, other times it freezes first try.

Stock rooted Gingerbread on Galaxy Note i717.

As for the Dolphin paranoia... Ignore it. Rumor turned into fact after going around the blogs/forums a few times, you know how that goes. Was related to their "Magazine" function, which IMO useless, but wasn't any cause to freak out about. Just something about their permissions as I recall; all long fixed.

.

same here. although I've never been a fan, and I love my stock, and Chrome, I set it as default just to really give it a chance with everyone calling it the best browser ever..... fast, but not fast enough to accept freezing. uninstalled

also, am I the only one who thinks it just doesn't look good?

I really can't tell a difference between this and the Dolphin HD I already use, except this beta makes all the text on the page blurry when I scroll.
What's supposed to be special about this one?

test it on my defy.
through i donot like dolphin at all.

Official browser should be best, but google doesn`t care, at least there are ppl who actually make this android working...
Google should get rid of their ANCIENT compiler they using to make android. Android will be ~100% faster than we have today if they use new compilers, and they probably asking why there is so many customs ROM out there...

edit: Browser working nice on HTC Desire, far from Opera Mini but better than stock on big pages. Ok, it`s still beta.
