    Hi

    I love my new Desire! It has prompted six people in my office to purchase it, but what I have found to be annoying is that I have lost the generic HTC browser. This happened when I installed Dolphin.

    I now have Opera 5 Mini Beta and that Orange Browser labelled "Internet" but not the stock one. I want it back as its great at rendering pages etc..

    Any ideas? :thinking:

    Can I ask where the generic HTC browser was to start with? I have an Orange branded phone with their browser but can't find any other browser on it at all - where was the HTC one located?

    Thanks

    It was just in the program menu called "internet" but wasn't all an orange colour so I knew it was stock browser. It has now vanished.

    I tried both Dolphin (as it had good reviews) and Opera Mini (as I had it on my N978GB) - however neither rendored web pages for a smaller screen like the stock browser. Please can I get it back without Hard Resetting my handset! :eek:

    Well I have an "Internet" app in the main list but it's the same Orange-branded one as on the home screen. If you do end up hard resetting can you confirm whether you get your non-Orange branded one back as I've never had this to my knowledge.

    I had the same problem after installing dolphin so I removed it. Generic browser came back! Works ok with xscope tho.

    Now I'm really confused. I have no other browsers installed but, in the applications list, only have the Orange Internet icon, nothing else. My mate's is exactly the same.

    I gues your orange 'browser' is just an orange skin applied over the standard one and default orange homepage.

    Looks that way - my aforementioned mate came from an unbranded HTC Magic and he says the browser is effectively identical so I presume it's the standard one just with an Orange icon.

    My normal orange browser (the only one on my handset) doesn't render the text so it fits on the screen like the stock browser. :(

    Do you mean re-flowing the text on the page to fit the resolution of the device?
