Dolphin Browser v10 arrives with new design, improved search and more

Version 10 of the Dolphin Browser has arrived in the Google Play Store and it brings quite a few new features. There is an updated user interface, some improvements to search and something called the Dolphin key. Of course, those are just a few from a list that also comes along with news of the browser having reached a new installation milestone. The Dolphin Browser folks have said the browser has now been installed 80 million times.

Dolphin Browser HD 8.0 update redesigns UI

Even with a growing number of browser available on the Google Play Store, Dolphin Browser HD remains a favorite for power users, including those of us here at Android Community. The latest update adds a bevvy of new features, mostly surrounding Dolphin's evolving user interface. The biggest change is a new menu bar that slims down the old double-row interface and hides a lot of the less immediate menu options behind more stylish icons, allowing users to keep an eye on more of the web window at once. You can download it for free in the Google Play Store.

Dolphin Browser adds Sonar voice control

The best third-party browser for Android just got a little better. Taking a cue from Ice Cream Sandwich itself, the latest Dolphin Browser update adds a host of voice control features all rolled into a system called Sonar. Far from just translating your voice into text (which you could already do by combining the standard Android keyboard with any text field) Sonar adds browser-specific commands to its interface, allowing for more precise touch-free control. You can download the latest version of Dolphin Browser HD for free in the Android Market.

Dolphin Browser adds Evernote, Skitch functionality

Dolphin Browser HD remains one of the most popular third-party browser alternatives for Android with over ten million downloads, and at least part of that is because of the strength of its add-on system. In that respect it's often thought of as "Firefox for Android" (even though we now have, well, Firefox for Android). Today developer MoboTap is partnering with Evernote to add both the primary Evernote functionality and notation engine Skitch to its widening array of integrated services via Dolphin's add-on system.
