I am a fan of the Android web browser; I find it to be almost as good as the browser on that fruity phone. The only common complaint about the native Android browser is multitouch– more specifically the lack thereof. I suspect that Android is going to go multitouch for real, but meanwhile a new browser steps in to fill the void.

Dolphin is a free browser that looks a bit like an ugly duckling, but users report it works pretty well. It has the usual requirements for a serious web browser — tabs, gestures, RSS integration and of course, multitouch. It is in the Android Market so if multitouch is what you live for, go get it.

  1. My HTC Droid Eris’ default web browser has multi-touch support.

    Is that for the benefit of those readers who think there’s too much iPhone coverage here? :)

  4. I’ve never got multitouch working in Dolphin, even with the two available themes. I’ll stick to the default and xScope Lite for now..
