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.

Dolphin Browser and Box.net team up for cloud sharing

As previously indicated, Dolphin Browser HD is awesome. And with extended storage deals for LG, Sony and HP devices, cloud storage provider Box.net is making quite a name for itself among mobile users. Today the two meet in Box for Dolphin, an easy way to share links between your Android phone or tablet and other devices using your Box.net account.

What does Dolphin Browser do when it passes 10 million users? Go to Disney World

Exciting news for indie mobile browser Dolphin: they've just passed the 10 million user mark. Dolphin Browser was one of the first alternative browsers available, and has remained popular even in the face of competition from big guys like Firefox and Opera. To celebrate, they're sending one lucky Dolphin fan on a free 5-day trip to Disney World, where they'll naturally be staying at the  Dolphin resort. To enter, you need to download Dolphin and fire off a quick tweet. You can find the contest details on Dolphin's blog.

Dolphin Browser responds: Webzines disabled, no breach in user privacy [Updated]

Yesterday we posted findings from one intrepid XDA-Developers member who claimed that the popular alternative browser Dolphin Browser HD was sending private user information, including URLs, clicks and searches, to a remote server. The developer has responded with an explanation of the more technical aspects of their Webzine feature, and according to a representative that contacted us today, the part of the browser that raised alarms has been temporarily disabled. The developer claims that there was absolutely no breach in user privacy or data security. UPDATE: Dolphin Browser's PR representative has contacted us again to let us know that users should update to the latest version of Dolphin Browser, 7.0.2, to disable the security issues. Version 7.0.1 has not been modified.
