The advantages of having an Android phone are many. One such advantage is its compatibility with various browsers, a feature that is absent in Apple products and the forthcoming Windows RT tablet. Although Opera Mini and Mobile are the commonly used ones, The Dolphin Browser HD is another option to ponder upon. One must appreciate Google for welcoming competition.

Google has ensured that Chrome has no hassles or broken links that other browsers don’t generally support.
Mozilla has an experimental functioning browser known as Junior. Chrome can still be differentiated from Safari on the iOS. The trademark tabs on top display with Google’s SPDY technology for boosting web performance.

The overhauled version has just arrived on the Android platform and is still in the beta stage for tablets. However results observed till now have been satisfactory. The UI pans and zooms smoothly, the navigation is quick as pages load faster. There were some issues with some website that the browser still couldn’t open. This new browser isn’t perfect but it can surely give chrome a run for its money.
