We did not want to cut corners or put out a product just for the sake of a sales-bump.

Dolphin is getting more attention from the perspective of multi-device compatibility. We have been looking for the best way to make Dolphin more "adaptable" for quite a while, but it seems that there is still no definite consensus on what has to be done.
