Dolphin Browser gets Flash, Android Lollipop support


The developers behind the Dolphin Browser have released a significant update for users interested in a browser experience outside of Chrome or the stock browser on their Android device. The new update brings Dolphin up to speed to run on Android Lollipop and enables users to view Flash items when they run across them.

Dolphin also gets a new feature that will autoclear app storage space when device storage is running low. That might be particularly helpful for users with older devices if they have tapped out their internal storage. Dolphin is also trying to make it easier to user the browser across devices by enabling sync of speed dials, add-ons, themes and settings using Dolphin Connect. In addition, users can share pages with other users via NFC. Finally, the developers indicate they have made some improvements to Dolphin’s Gesture and Sonar support and the auto-hiding of the bottom bar when browsing a web page.
