Gesture politics

As well as pinch-to-zoom, Dolphin supports its own bespoke gestures. Draw a left-facing arrow and you move to the previous page. Draw a circle and the page refreshes. You get the idea.

It’s a simple system but once you get used to it you wonder how you managed without it and you can even set up your own gestures. Draw a capital T on my phone and a new tab opens. Draw the same upside down and it closes the current tab.

Rummage around in the settings and you will find various other handy features like the ability to swap the user agent between Android, desktop, iPhone or iPad and a browse without history option - handy if her indoors or the nipper ever uses your phone for a quick surf.

If space is tight Dolphin can store its cache on your SD card or it can be set to erase the cache, history and stored cookies - or any combination of them - each time you exit.

The final appeal of the 5.0 update is the complete removal of ads without the previous need to buy a $5 licence. ®
