Gestures are a powerful and convenient way to control smartphone functions. In this How To, we'll show you how to use gestures to surf the Web on your Android phone.
Before we get started, you'll want to download the Dolphin Browser HD from the Android Market and complete the setup wizard.
Use navigation gestures
You can use gestures in Dolphin Browser HD to navigate the browser. To go backward, forward, refresh, go to the top, go to the bottom, or launch a new tab, simply tap on the gesture button on the lower left-hand corner and draw the associated gesture on the screen.
To see the list of default gestures, tap the gesture button then the gesture settings button in the lower right-hand corner (mechanical gear icon).
Create custom gestures
You can create a custom gesture for a Web address or other commands like exit, add bookmark, clear cache, and more. Here's how to create a new gesture to launch a URL:
Tap the gesture button, then the gesture settings button.
Tap the new gesture button in the upper right-hand corner.
In the "Load URL:" box, type in the Web address you want to load and tap the OK button.
The next screen shows you a recommended gesture for the URL you entered. If you want to keep it, tap the Done button, otherwise draw your own gesture and then tap Done.
Test your gesture to see if it loads your URL.
Congratulations! You've created your first custom gesture; navigating the Web on your Android device will never be the same.
