    What is "Internet Data"?

    Is it ok to delete it via the applications menu? If so, what "data" will I lose?

    Cheers.

    Apologies. I didn't mean it was actually in the applications menu.

    If you go to settings > applications > manage applications > and scroll through the list of all the applications you can select internet.

    You can then choose to clear the data and the cache.

    I was wondering what the data option is, as there is a couple of MB being eaten up by it.

    Yes thats what I meant.

    I admit I haven't got a HTC sense rom, but all my internet related data is in browser cache and data. I do not have "Internet data". Could it be related to another application? Or maybe its just a HTC thing.

    You'll lose bookmarks and any settings that you may have changed. Apart from that I'm not sure.

    I think it could be a HTC/stock thing, mate. It's not related to any other application as far as I'm aware, so I think furious duck has cleared it up.

    Thanks, mate. I'll be leaving that alone then! :D

    On my HTC Desire the "Data" used for the "Internet" app had grown to 6MB and clearing the cache/history/etc. did nothing to reduce it.

    So I used an app to back up my bookmarks, then deleted the 6MB of Internet Data, restored my bookmarks, and all seems well.
