The alternate cross platform browser folks from Dolphin have today announced and released Link Bubble. OK, they didn’t, but they might as well have, as Dolphin Float is essentially just Link Bubble by Chris Lacey. This is good and bad for Chris, good as it partially validates his innovative idea, and bad as it means he has competition. what is probably worse for Chris is that Dolphin Float is free, whereas Link Bubble is only free with limited features.
The concept is simple, rather than leaving whatever app you are in to open links, they are instead loaded in the background and the app places a little ‘bubble’ on your screen. When you want to view the link(s) contents you simply press the bubble to open the already loaded web page.
