    Dolphin usability plus points, IMO.

    1. Things like gestures and speed dials (which you manually add, not auto ones created by the browser based on your browsing history - that is annoying)

    2. Private Mode (you can set it to do so for all browsing sessions)

    3. Tab switching is similar to desktop browser. No tab preview/thumbnails (I prefer it this way)

    4. Built-in control of web content (it applies on global basis; but better than none)
    - load images
    - javascript
    - cookies

    I miss these when using Chrome or Firefox on Android.

    Yeah, Dolphin rocks. I use it more than even Maxthon on Android.

    Rocks...you bet it is. Privacy/security aside, it has been the best browser I've used on Android. I really want to use Firefox but damn, it's laggy and slow as molasses. Dolphin OTOH has been mostly reliable.

    I tried Firefox on my Nexus 7 but I wasn't impressed. I agree that it is the best Android browser, I use it almost exclusively now. I quite like its new face lift as well.
