Dolphin Browser Beta with Dolphin Engine Now Available

Back in June, we brought you news that the Dolphin Browser was was getting a new engine promising major advances in browser technology. Among those changes were:

5-10X faster than the default Android browser
100% faster than Chrome (at times)
Scored over a 450 when tested on HTML5test.com. (HTML5test.com is an a respected tool for testing a browser’s support of HTML5)
Try it out our latest version of Dolphin Engine, the behind-the scenes technology that makes this Dolphin Browser the highest performing HTML5 browser.

Of course, this sparked interest in the new engine. The time to play is now here, as a new Dolphin Browser Beta has been released. Shared on our forums by XDA Forum Member AlbertHu, the Dolphin Browser release is a beta. Therefore, if you do try it out, know that there could be some bugs with it. Some of the features include support for Jelly Bean, the aforementioned Dolphin Engine, and a few more. The full list includes:

Android 4.1 support
Faster page loading and response speed
Stability improvements for Android 2.3+
Improved Flash support
Improved HTML5 canvas support
Various stability and performance improvement

Additionally, the application has full support for Web Worker, Web Socket, and Web Audio along with WebGL. As it stands, Dolphin is one of the better browsers out there. If the Dolphin Engine is half as good as it is expected to be, things are about to get exciting in the mobile browser wars.

For more information, check out the Beta thread.

The Witcher Battle Arena: Hectic Multiplayer MOBA Fun

Do you like MOBAs? Do you like gaming on your phone? Given that MOBAs (multi player battle arenas) have amassed millions upon millions of players, there's a chance you play LoL or DOTA. And here at XDA we love phones, and we spend a lot of time on them, so if you were to like gaming outside of smartphones you probably like some on them too. I personally like neither, and I simply download the latest 3D games to see the progression...

According to myLGphones, a version of the LG G4 will not feature neither a 2K nor a 4K display - but 3K. If you are anything like me, your reaction to this news will be confusion.

However, these leaks don't point towards all G4...
