    I just sent an email to the devs at Dolphin with a suggestion regarding the browser. It's really something that ALL touch-centric browsers need to implement but I use Dolphin, so that's where I sent it.

    As you well know, so much of the web these days uses your ability to hover the mouse pointer over certain areas of the screen to do all manner of things from showing menus to deleting a facebook post. Without a mouse, that ability is gone. I wonder how hard it would be to implement a "hover mode" where you could touch and hold (or some similar action) a screen element and rather than instantly following the link, it would show you the result of hovering the mouse. Would that be more of an Android OS thing or would it make more sense to do it in the browser? It seems to me that it would be a nice feature at various other places in the OS but it would really be helpful in browsers...

    What do you think?
