    What do you guys think about the privacy issue with Dolphin and more specifically Dolphin Zero possibly phoning home?

    It seems most of the browsers out there are spying on you in some way.

    Name a browser that doesn't phone home. The Internet is all about making money and Adam Smith's Invisible Hand is working there just as it does in any other market.
