Sequoia-Backed Dolphin Brings Its Popular Browser To The iPhone
One of Android's biggest success stories so far has been the Dolphin Browser, a third-party browser that includes plenty of niceties that Android's stock browser doesn't: things like gestures, handy sidebars to access menus, user agent spoofing, and add-ons (which are basically extensions). Dolphin's recently raised $10 million from top-tier VC Sequoia, and the app just passed 9 million total downloads. And that's just on Android. Today, the app is coming to the iPhone. It went live late last night, and you can download it right here. As with other browsers on the iPhone, Dolphin uses the core Safari renderer to display content (in other words, Dolphin hasn't built a new browser from the ground up ?�it's adding a new layer of features on top of Apple's browser).
