    I love sense but also am trying out adw launcher. Is there any other good bookmark widgets out there. That is the one widget I can not live without. Everyone one I have tried has been pretty terrible. Any suggestions for the incredible?

    Kind of off topic but your opinions on ADW launcher. I'm debating downloading it or launcher pro

    I had adw and Launcher....Launcher Pro Beta for me. ADW seems more "restrictive" to me...not sure why lol. It seems so, set in stone maybe? Where as Launcher Pro seems more customizable.

    Is their any good Bookmark Widgets besides the HTC one? I like the HTC one but can't figure out how to delete bookmarks other than adding them.

    None of the scrolling widgets seem to have a good replacement, sadly :(

    Visual bookmarks is the closest ive found. Its ok but isnt as big or smooth as the htc sense bookmarks.

    I was all set to take the plunge and get ADW, but then I found a neat little home replacement that WORKS with Sense UI (It's sort of a home within a home screen plugin).

    It's called "Powerstrip"

    or via Appbrain

    Basically it will let you duplicate/emulate a similar draw like that of ADW which everyone seems to want. It's not free, but .99 is kinda cheap to try it out. It takes a bit getting used to and the biggest 'odd' thing is that your widgets require two clicks to activate.. one to move the widget above the bar.. the 2nd to activate it. Took me a while to figure that out. It also has a 2 or 3 bar shortcut section as well.

    Once you set it up however, one click of the Home button opens the drawer.. double click the home to use the standard "go Home" function, and it has no problem with HTC Sense on my Evo. So now I get all the fun widgets, + a configurable drawer that auto-hides :)

    If that's all you're looking for from ADW then you can keep your sense bookmark widget :)

    I went to ADW.launcher and missed the bookmark app too. The I found I can long press the homescreen, select short cut and bookmarks is an option. 1 bookmark = 1 widget space. Did the same thing with often called contacts using Contact Widget. So now on one screen I use the top half for contacts and the bottom half for bookmarks
