Dolphin Jetpack brings much-improved HTML5 rendering engine


Dolphin has just announced a great new companion app for its Android browser. They’re calling it “Dolphin Jetpack” and the app is said to bring 5-10 times faster HTML5 rendering performance than the stock Android browser, and performance that’s two times faster than Google Chrome. This is possible to Dolphin’s own HTML5 rendering engine.

The app must be used in conjunction with Dolphin 9.0, so call it a plugin of sorts. But this plugin is supposed to be make Dolphin Browser so fast that it scores highest on most industry-standard browser tests. Apparently it also got to the “final ring” of the Ringmark benchmark test, something that has never been done before, supposedly.

More than that, Dolphin Jetpack will save next and previous pages in memory so that you won’t have to reload a page when moving forward or backward. They’ve also improved night support.

Since Dolphin doesn’t have a desktop presence it didn’t enjoy the luxury of coming to Android with a reputation, but it’s built a name for itself in mobile through significant support and numerous updates and we couldn’t be any happier that things are getting even better. Find Dolphin Browser and Dolphin Jetpack in the Play Store.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. best browser out there, imo. i am an avid chrome user on desktops, but chrome mobile just doesnt compare to dolphin

    1. I can’t go without desktop syncing.

      1. Because of Dolphin I no longer use my laptop, therefore no need for desktop syncing.

      2. me too. there have only been 2 version of chrome (on my phone anyway) where chrome has worked flawlessly in terms of speed. I find it so sluggish that I’m often thinking of going back to dolphin but it’s the syncing with my laptop that prevents this.

    2. I agree totally. It’s better than Opera and Boat!

  2. Guess Dolphin is no longer compatible with the Infinity, lol. Add that to the ever expanding list

    1. Infinity? The car?

      1. Asus TF700

        Sent from my Asus Infinity

  3. Not available for the nexus7

    1. Really? Big fail if its isn’t.

  4. It’s not compatible with my Toyota :-P

  5. It wants permissions for your camera?

    1. I noticed this as well and have not updated since I still cannot find any reason for a web browser to need access to my camera. If anyone figures it out, let us know.

      1. Only reason to have camera access would be for camera chats on websites like all those crappy chat roulette sites out there

        1. *shutter*

  6. Jetpack was a complete failure with and also screwed it up for the regular Dolphin browser, so I uninstalled it.

  7. I tried slowed down my browser, so I unistalled it. Also, I don’t like how Dolphin disabled the Desktop user agent by default,boo. But, it is still my goto browser for now or Boat Mini

  8. Dolphin sounds like a great backup and second choice, but it’s hard for me to break from Chrome Mobile. I still feel Chrome offers more features than Dolphin, loving the competition though!
