    Anyone have ideas as to how to make bookmark shortcuts on the home screen for ICS? Only thing I see under widgets is the "ribbon" shortcut but that is for the default browser....I am running Dolphin?

    Thx.....

    Just tried it on 2 devices, one running 4.0.4 (phone) and the tablet. It works on the phone but not the tablet. Strange, not sure why.

    Well, thanks for the response and checking it out. Not sure how "jacksmyname" got it to work on his tablet....?

    Oh well, guess no shortcuts for the browser on my home screen for now...dunno!

    I followed sikOO's instructions and it worked fine.
    I don't have seperate bookmarks on my screen, so trying it was the first time.
    I use APW widgets. One is for bookmarks, and it's pretty good.
    It's kind of like a box with small screenshots of the websites, and can be scrolled.
    It's also resizable.

    BTW: Please call me Jack. That's what my friends call me, and I think of this forum
    as a place with new friends.:)
