I love this browser! It is fast, reliable, and very stable. It uses tab browsing and has flash video. It also has gestures which I haven't had time to use much yet. I want to thank the Barnes and Nobles developers for this browser. They have been offering new and better apps every month or so and I appreciate that. Please consider offering Lets Create Pottery by Infinite Dreams and Cut the Rope and other popular apps. Good job!

This browser is, functionally, much better than the stock browser. But...

1) This browser is run through GOOGLE? If you like your privacy and try to stay out of the GOOGLE monster's tentacles...you need to keep looking for another browser. BIG RED FLAG that everything you do on your nook is being tracked and recorded by Google, HLS! and other agencies if you use this browser. Look up Google's privacy policy if you want to know more.

2) I bought a Nook tablet because I'm vision impared. I can blow MOST things up big enough to read them But...some Web pages seemed locked in this tinsy tiny font that I can' t enlarge. I seems to happen on blog sites alot. VERY FRUSTRATING!

3) I've been out to the Dolphin site to see if I could get an add-on for the font issue mentioned above. All KINDS of cool and useful add-on available...Just not compatible for the Nooks. All the cool kids get to play with the fun toys but not us Nookies. What's up with that??? You're teasing us, right? Throw a little more meat on the bone, Dudes!

4) I like the "speed dial" feature but it is too limited in the number of sites it will let you save there. Need to add AT LEAST enough spots to fill the screen. I think, right now, it gives you only 5 or 6 sites. We want MORE! ..Please?

5) BOOKMARKS- nice you can save them but there are only two folders you can use to try and organize them. I'd like to be able to add unlimited folder that I name what I want to call them. Not just "bookmarks" and "more bookmarks." Uhhh...those dont help much. Hahaha...

All that said, I'd give this browser good marks but not great marks. The developer is on the right track but they have lots of work to do to make it a winner.

    Almost perfect

    Much more useful than the default browser. Tabs, flash, gestures which can be modified to your liking, and quick response times.

    Making the add ons available would be perfectionbut I believe that is a BN issue.

    Good on nook color.

    Default browser crashes and you'll lose your windows. Dolphin is more stable and UI is much better, you dont have to scroll all the way to top to use the menu. Tabbed browsing is great, but the x to close a tab doesnt work properly all the time. I dont use the default browser anymore. Know how to go back, but there should be an accessible back and forward nav buttons on the menu. All in all, best browser.

    Crash solution

    When this browser starts to crash a lot, I do a complete power down (on my NOOK HD+) and then power back up and the browser is like new.

    It needs to be able to add more addons.the nook blocks apk. Files,so we need some other way to get addons.because dolphin translate could be really useful on this site where i have friends who speak different languages.

    Nice

    This browser looks very cool. It has everything you need just by swiping or shaking. Seems very proffesional looking. Problems are the dolphin voice keeps popping up, but i fixed that by going to options. Also thr theme setting do not work. Or is there a paid version of this?

    Easy to use

    This is a really good app. The browser is very user friendly, much better than the one that came with the device. I highly recommend it.

    Way better than the std browser

    The touch based shortcuts make this entirely worthwhile. Given the limits of a tablet interface, the Dolphin browser exceeded my expectations. Good tab support and gesture based shortcuts. Way cool.

    I love the Gestures and Wallpapers (i have a cheetah wallpaper from Dolphin still) but it caused me almost to shut down the web they give u on Nook¿ Tablet. It now works for me if I use it for a few minutes otherwise, back it goes to Archive!

    I have been using this browser on my nook tablet for several wee

    I have been using this browser on my nook tablet for several weeks now an am loving it.  It seems more reliable than the built-in browser. I like having tabbed browser winows and the home page shortcuts.

    more from this reviewer

    Solid browser

    Great browser, but like some other apps the touchscreen seems to pick up scrolling as clicking so navigating becomes frustrating. Not sure if it's an app thing or a Nook thing.

    Version 8.7.0?

    Version 9 (for mobile devices as well as computers) is now available from their website! B&N has no 'update' for it (yet?)!

    Until Chrome comes to Nook, this is the best browser around

    With its gestures, tabbed browsing and fast rendering, Dolphin is the best browser on Nook Color. Only spanner in the works is that buttons near the top right corner such as "refresh", "add new tab" don't respond to touch most of the time.
