Dolphin Browser to replace stock Android browser

Before reading I want you to first take a look at the video above, then go back and look at it again a second time because they go kind of fast.  WOW.

To recap:
#1 the browser integrates with Delicious, Twitter and your text messaging app so that you can instantly send links to pages you are viewing without have to copy and paste and without switching apps, only thing missing is facebook but im sure they're working on that.
#2 you can comment on stories and articles you are reading without having to scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page, below all the rest of the user comments.
#3 it compiles a list of all the popular pages being viewed that day so that you can see what others have found interesting enough to read.
#4 i didn't know what Google Bookmarks was but I found out that its an online bookmark service through Google that you can use to store all your favorite bookmarks, may not be for all but still very cool.
#5 rss detection and subscription would have to be one of my favorite features, the browser is able to recognize the page has an rss feed then it allows you to subscribe to it and add it to google reader, awesome.
#6 read it later is embedded into the browser as well, as the name implies, if you would like to come back and finish reading a page you are currently on, you can save it for later.
#7 the all in one start page features a link to all of big G's other services as well as your history, your favorites, read it later articles, delicious posts and more, way schway.
#8 it supports multitouch functionality for those of you lucky enough to own a Droid.

This browser looks revolutionary, smart, and intuitive and has some functionality that I wish I had on my laptop browser.  If you are on an Android device I would encourage you to give it a try and tell me all about it, maybe its time I go back to Android myself.
