Dolphin HD: browse with tabs

Now before I go on, this recommendation is not about page rendering speed. If you want to download Dolphin, Opera, Firefox or any of the alternatives and then try to gauge which one loads pages a quarter of a second faster then the others, well, be my guest.

No, the appeal of Dolphin HD - which has just hit the big 5.0 - lies in its features set. Firstly, you get good ol' tabbed browsing so you can open up to eight pages and flip between them just like you can on a PC.

Next there is the clever UI. Swipe a page to the right and all your bookmarks appear, swipe to the left and you can access all your tools and extensions, and there are some handy ones available, including the screen grab and save-page-as-a-PDF extensions I use almost daily.
