How to speed up your Android web browser by 5-10x


Frustrated by the slow speeds of your Android web browser? Today the team behind Dolphin Browser released a new beta version and they claim it is 5-10x faster than the default browser at HTML5 rendering, and 100% faster than Chrome.

The Dolphin team was able to achieve the fastest scores on thanks to their very own Dolphin Engine, which has baked in additional canvas enhancements and behind-the-scenes technology. In addition to that benchmark, they were also the first mobile browser to pass Ringmark’s Ring 1 series of 400+ tests.

How fast? Dolphin Browser Beta’s HTML-5 rendering is:

  • 5 – 10X faster than the default Android browser
  • 100% faster than Chrome (at times)
  • Initially scored over 450 when tested on ( is an industry respected tool for testing a browser’s support of HTML5)

If you want to give the latest Dolphin Browser Beta a spin, then grab it from the Google Play link below. Try comparing the performance in HTML5test and Ringmark to see how it stacks up with your current browser and let us know what you think.
