Dolphin browser now on iPhone

The Dolphin browser is among the most popular mobile browsers out there and now it’s available on the iPhone. If offers a special finger-drawn gestures feature so that you can easily and quickly go to a specified page (your blog, Google, Facebook, etc.), scroll up or down, and more.

The gesture system offers you preset gestures (hand-drawn – like letters, numbers, symbols, etc.) or you can opt to create custom ones. Creating your own custom gestures, however, is a bit dodgy as the browser mistakes what you’re drawing to be something only remotely similar to it and would make you erase the preset, instead of creating a new gesture.

Anyway it mostly works great and contrary to prior expectations is very useful indeed.

You also get Webzine, which is works like the iOS 5 Reader and others – it strips pages of all the ads and unnecessary content from a page you’re viewing and gives you only the text and images for easier, more concentrated browsing.

One-click webpage sharing to Twitter or Facebook works great too, you get a Speed Dial (Opera called…), tabbed browsing, hidden swipe-out menus and a very handy mobile/desktop switching agent for the pages you’re viewing.

What makes Dolphin better than others?

You can simplify the way you navigate the mobile web without going through complicated clicks. On the bottom menu bar, you can find the gesture button (finger shape), which enables the gesture mode. In gesture mode, you can draw a sign or add a new gesture. For example, in any web site, if you input “v” gesture in the gesture mode, you can go to the bottom of the web site.

Bring out the beauty of the web and with Dolphin Webzine users can experience the web like never before.
