Dolphin Browser HD

Dolphin Browser for iPad – one of the very best alternative browsers for the iPad – has been updated today, to Version 4.2.

The headline new feature in the update is New iPad Retina Display for a sleeker browsing experience. This was already a stellar looking (and performing) app, but now it looks more gorgeous than ever. Everything looks sharper on its pages and it has now become even more attractive as a Safari alternative on the iPad.

If Apple ever gives us the option to change our default browser on the iPad (cough  iOS 6 wish list cough) then this will be mine right away. The app is a previous pick for Best Free iPad App of the Week, and was included in our list of the Best iPad Apps of 2011.

Here’s the rest of the change list for this latest update:

Keyboard: Your last used keyboard layout will reopen for fewer switches.
Browsing History: past sites and searches shown in suggestion list while searching in URL bar.
Various stability and performance improvement

And here’s an App Store link for Dolphin Browser for iPad; it’s still a free app.
