Testing Dolphin Browser HD V6.0 beta on your HTC EVO may have resulted in sharing your email address

Dolphin hd Recently on G&E, David wrote an article about different web browsers for the HTC EVO 4G. He compared the top browsers and went on to mention Dolphin Browser HD. He said it was his "daily browser" and spoke highly of the stable V5.1 available in the market now.

Since then, Dolphin Browser HD opened up a beta for its latest V6.0. And unfortunately, an error by one of the company's employees resulted in an email being sent to beta participants that allowed some recipients to see the email addresses of thousands of other beta testers.

Some websites were intitally reporting that "interesting keys" were also included, but Dolphin has assured everybody that the keys had "nothing to do with users account information."

Dolphin goes on to take the blame for their mistake: "It was never our intention to reveal this information and for that we are genuinely sorry." Although the only information revealed were some email addresses and Dolphin ensures something like this won't happen again, for those wanting to keep their email addresses private, the damage has already been done.

It should also be noted that if you're part of the beta and did not receive this email that you could still potentially have your email floating around at this point.

Dolphin Browser HD is a solid product and the developers seem sincerely apologetic. What do you think about the leak? Will this make you change your daily browser? Or will you cut them some slack and call it an honest mistake?
