Browse, I say!

Imagine just speaking to your bowser to go to a website rather than having to type in words using the keypad. Well that is one of the things that the new Dolphin HD browser does in your Android device. One of the most powerful third party browsers available for smartphones, it not only does the basics right but also throws in a number of customizations when it comes to functionalities. For instance, it allows you to choose whether you want Flash support all the time or not and also gives you a choice for rendering the pages as per an Android phone, desktop, iPhone or iPad. The browser interface is simple and comes with multi-touch support for easy browsing, as well as support for Chinese, Japanese and Latin languages. There is a toolbar on the top right which lets you go full screen and use various add ons as well, which enable you to change the look and feel of the browser and add various capabilities to it. The browser has some gesture control functions too - you can simply draw a figure on the screen to make the browser take an action like refresh, new tab, go back, head to a specific website, etc. Then comes Sonar, the voice command capability of the browser. To access it, you can either shake the phone or press the mic icon on the address book. Once you have uttered the words you want to search, the browser looks around for relevant information and lists the links. As in other voice control apps, we found it a bit iffy when it came to Indian accents. But all said and done, Dolphin HD provides an excellent and innovative alternative to your devices stock Android browser. We hope it inspires other browsers to get on to the gesture and voice-oriented navigation bandwagon too. Download Dolphin hd browser
