Thanks for the update. I went back and edited any posts where I quoted your list, so that the browser package was not mentioned. Thank you for compiling this list. It's the most complete I've seen yet.

I understand and I was not criticizing you for listing those two apps -- "Easy Wi-Fi" and "Think Free Office". It's just I know people get enthusiastic and what *can* be removed should not be confused with what *should* be removed. I was just adding some context that not everything on the list is bloatware.
