Default Advanced Browser Settings

If you open the default browser and type the address "about:debug" then press enter it will unlock numerous settings that are hidden. Once you do this it will appear that nothing has happened. Goto Menu>More>Settings and look at all the candy you just found.

Also on the Incredible there is an extra menu option that allows you to control and delete the hidden bookmarks feature.

The default browser saves snapshots of the webpages you visit. These are not erased when you reset the phone and there were a few news sites that claimed it was a security vulnerability in that you could not erase your history without manually using a file manager to delete the thumbnails.

Cool Where do I enter "about:debug"

When I open my default browser, it takes me straight to google. The only place I can enter information is in the google search box. Where do I enter "about:debug"?
