Video: Everyone has used their phone to settle disputes over trivia. You whip it out, punch in a few keywords and there's your proof that Geoffrey Rush won an Oscar for Shine. The makers of Cake, a new mobile browser, think they can make this process better.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.


There's no shortage of great web browsers for Android, and which one you use is largely up to personal preference. If we had to pick one however, we still think Dolphin Browser is your best bet for speed, features, gestures and add-ons.


iOS: Safari on iOS doesn't support extensions, which is a bummer if you want to quickly send a page to a read-it-later service or kick a link over to Evernote. Fortunately, technology blog Digital Inspiration has a huge collection of the most useful bookmarklets that can emulate the work of extensions.


Android: The team behind Dolphin, our favourite browser for Android, has put a lot of focus on making the mobile browsing experience as fast as possible. Dolphin Jetpack, a new add-on engine for the Dolphin Browser, is the latest result of their efforts. According to the developers, it makes Dolphin up to 10 times faster than the stock Android browser and twice as fast as Chrome.
