If you're not too fond of your phone's stock web browser, odds are that you've come across the Dolphin Browser alternative before. However, as of today, the popular third-party web surfing tool is claiming that its latest beta is the "fastest HTML5 browser out there." Available to Android users, the lastest beta build introduces a variety of backend enhancements that deliver a performance increase. Developer MoboTap claims that Dolphin HD Beta is five to ten times faster than Android's stock browser and 100 times faster than Chrome for Android. So, if your current browser isn't quite cutting it, or if you're just looking for a change, Dolphin Browser HD Beta could be just what the doctor ordered.
