One of the most popular third-party browsers on Android is now available on the iTunes App Store. Dolphin Browser, from MoboTab, has earned praise for its unique interface, highly intuitive feature set, and ease of use with gesture control.
Unlike the mobile version of Safari or the stock browser that comes pre-installed on Android, Dolphin actually looks and feels more like a computer browser, with easy tab navigation, sidebars for bookmarks and site feeds, and a smart URL completion feature.
The various versions of the Dolphin Browser have been some of the most popular third-party browsers for the Android platform, and now Dolphin has brought many of the features that make it a well-liked browser to the iPhone.
Dolphin for the iPhone version 1.0 offers features like the Webzine, which presents web pages in an easy to read article format, Gestures to quickly perform custom functions, easy, one-click sharing to Facebook or Twitter, the Speed Dial to access bookmarks quickly, tabbed browsing, SideBars that contain bookmarks and tool bars, the customizable MenuBar, and customizable user agents. Users of Dolphin for Android should feel right at home with the iPhone version.

Apple has conquered the multimedia device market with the iPod, the smartphone market with the iPhone, and the tablet PC market with the iPad. It has not, however, entered one of the largest consumer electronics businesses — TV. That may be about to change. VentureBeat writes “Apple is almost certainly working on a digital television based on its iOS operating system, according to multiple sources in Silicon Valley.”
An Apple TV, which would run the company’s operating system, would allow people to do many things with their televisions they cannot do now. The most important of these would probably be the ability to run Apple apps. This would permit consumers to download applications from Apple’s store which has hundreds of thousands of products. The Apple TV would allow people to switch from Facebook to Google to their calendars all on one device in the living room.
