Default Change home page on Dolphin browser?

Anyone using the most current Dolphin Browser? I can't find anywhere to set my own home page... Am I missing something?

Thanks.

I have not tried. The dev of that app incorporated adds into his landing page as a way to create revenue for the browser without having ot charge for it.

I say, if you like it enough to make it your primary browser, leave it and help support the dev so he will keep up the good work.

Just my .02

I may have found a way on my Droid.

Go to settings inside the browser (menu button then arrow for more options) then scroll down to system settings, here you should see the option to set the home page. Hope that works!!!

You may want to contact the developer about that.

lol no kidding.

Being that I finally got to root my Hero, (woo hoo), I can actually provide screen shots with the step by step I did above.

1-Open Dolphin Browser
(either by the application drawer, or from a icon on your screen.)

2-Click the Menu button

3-Dolphin opens up, now click on the down arrow at the lower right side of the screen.

4-Select the Settings icon

5-Scroll down to System Settings

6-Scroll down to Set Home Page

7-Enter the home page link.

TS, unrelated to this thread, but what clock widget is that on your home screen, and is it available to NON rooted Hero users? I don't see it as an option under "Clock", on HTC widgets Thx!

added: I see a similar one, but it has a white dial vs dark,

Thanks Lordley,

That was great and easy to follow for a first timer to smartphones however, once I entered the home page URL and clicked enter - nothing happened. I clicked the enter key cos there was no 'save' field....so it reverts back when I leave the dolphin browser.
