Default new ascend user can't clear all of browser history

When I go type in an internet address I see alot of previous addreses that I thought I cleared out using reset and clear history in sub menu. But the still remain. How do I remove them so when i go to search or load a new website I don't see the blast 10 or so entries?

also I've been reading a little and see rooted androids(My Ascend) and unrooted androids, what is the difference?

Rooting allows u to clear pre installed apps to improve phone and could ultimately lead to a better experience through customizing and over clocking
As far as clearing your history, I'm not sure clear cache,bookmarks, and everything u can.

I believe you are asking about the GOOGLE search history.If so,on the GOOGLE home page,select SETTINGS,then select your preferred choices & don't forget to push the SAVE button @ the bottom of the page.
I hope this works for you,but,I have found that I have to re-set my options on the GOOGLE settings from time to time as they always seem to default to something other than what I want to have the options set at.

If anyone else has experienced this and/or has any suggestions/answers to resolving this,we'd like to hear from you.

I "saved" my settings (on the google settings page) and right after I exited the browser I went back in and the settings went back to what they were before I saved my changes. 8-)

Settings>Applications>Manage Applications>Clear cache for the browser apps

Be warned it will clear everything saved in the browser i.e. saved logins, favorites, etc.

So it'll clear my favorite websites, as in I'll have to go to those sites again and re-save them again?

No, it won't delete your bookmarks.

The mods are going to delete this. They don't like that site being mentioned.
