Dolphin, Chrome, Firefox Browsers For Android Get Updates

Ads by Google

It seems that developers of internet browsers on Android have been busy as the major browsers have all released new updates.


Dolphin, the fast and elegant browser, has had the most significant update. For starters, the browser now comes with a master password, giving you one more layer of security. Dolphin 10.1.2 now features Night Mode, which can be activated from the swipe menu on the right. This darkens your whole screen for a battery-friendly and more eye-popping experience. There’s a new option to also customize Dolphin with new skins.

Under the hood, Dolphin’s got a bunch of new improvements too. Launch performance has been improved to make it faster to start the app. A bug in Android KitKat that didn’t let you pinch-to-zoom has now been fixed. Apart from that, you can also download files to your external SD Card.

Dolphin is free to download from the Play Store.


Google Chrome

Google has pushed Chrome 31 to the stable channel. Apart from a few security fixes and improvements for stability, performance and security, the browser comes with enhanced autofill for a faster checkout experience on sites supporting requestAutocomplete. We talked about this web payments system in detail when Chrome 31 Beta first rolled out.

Meanwhile, the beta version of Chrome has also had an update, which fixes browser crashes and temporarily removes the ability to add an application shortcut—it will return in a future beta.

Google Chrome is free to download from the Play Store.

Mozilla Firefox

There’s a small update on Mozilla Firefox for Android, but if you’re using the browser—and you should, since it’s among the 7 Android browsers better than the native one—then you might want to grab the new v25.0.1.

“It appears that Mozilla’s engineers identified a security vulnerability onto the browser itself and had to patch it up before the issue could be exploited by hackers,” Softpedia reports.
