Dolphin Browser goes local, now powers search via Baidu, Yandex and more

Dolphin browserWith browser wars already heating up in the mobile arena, MoboTap, the creators of Dolphin Browser, have decided to go local. The company has partnered with multiple search providers to offer a more localised experience to its users.

The result of this partnership reached Google Play earlier today in the form of an app update for Dolphin Browser, which now brings a more localised and customisable version to its users in each country.

“If you are in Russia, the default search will be Yandex, not Google.  If you are in China, the default search would be Baidu,” said Edith Yeung, VP of Business Development of Dolphin.

The team is also offering its users a private alternative for searching in the form of DuckDuckGo, which is available alongside Google if a user wants to switch.

The web browser has also been translated in 21 languages, so it isn’t just the search engines that is the sole localisation offering. In terms of the customisations, users can now choose from various themes and colours to turn the looks of the browser to their liking.
