Rotate Dolphin Browser + home button

Is it not possible to rotate the Dolphin Browser? I find it easier to read web pages in landscape.
Also, does it not have a 'home' button?

I tried Opera, but I could not find any way to rotate it either. Is there maybe another (good) browser where it is possible to read in landscape mode?

No, wait, I managed to rotate the Dolphin by checking 'auto-rotate screen' in settings!

But the question is still, is there a home button?

No home button. You hit the Vox's back button to go back, you tap the + sign in the upper right corner to open a new tab which would have shortcuts to your favorite pages in up to 10 boxes if you have saved them.

My opera (opera mobile) auto rotates. I don't think I had to change any settings to get it to do that.

FYI, there are system wide rotation settings in android...maybe yours is not set?

Thanks answers, guys.

I manage to figure out how to auto-rotate, shame about the home button. Or, lack of maybe I should say. But I'll just do as Cdesja5 and open a new tab instead.

This forum is great! Quick answers, and so many people who know so much!
