  1. Dolphin Browser is definitely the best browser. I am using this browser since a long time and it does makes browsing experience fast and easy. For using Gestures, one have to do a lot of practice and it can be little annoying.

    1. Yes, using gesture might be difficult for the first time users as it only accepts perfectly drawn gestures. Apart from that, as you said Dolphin Browser is the best browser with no doubt

  2. Nicely written detailed post. I was not aware of the fact that it also offers voice search and gestures. For me, add-ons are the most beautiful thing about this browser. I will try the voice feature for now. Eager to see how accurately it works.

    1. Thanks! Yes, it does offer voice search and gestures. But this feature varies from device to device. Dolphin Browser offers best add-ons. Good luck with voice search.

  3. Till time I was using Opera browser but after reading this I am sure that this is better than Opera. It does look like Google Chrome browser but the voice search, gestures, add-ons and themes makes it different from Chrome. Meanwhile it Logo is beautiful.

    1. Yes the tabbed searching do looks like Chrome but features like Voice search and gestures make Dolphin Browser unique and best.
