There's got to be a way to change the homepage right? I can't find an options for it any where.
go into the browser hit menu then slide the pop up menu up and you should see settings in the right hand corner. It took me a minute to realize that the pop up menu slid up. Hope that helps.
Also try dolphin browser, i recommend it.
and soon we should be seeing pocketfox (firefox for android).
While having the Awesome Bar on the phone would be great, I've really come to love Opera's browser. Plus Opera is the only one with a great infrastructure behind their browser to speed things up. I wonder if it would support multi-touch?
Thanks. I knew there was something I missed. I never would have noticed the sliding bar on that menu.
menu>scroll..>settings>scroll....>set homepage>your choice>>back button
i agree, the dolphin browser is highly recommended over the default, i just downloaded it and was amazed at the performance, i think it is better than the default, i even set it as the default.
How do you set as default?
Thanks for the tip on dolphin. I think it just became my default browser. I tried opera the other day but wasn't impressed.
Well thats opera mini, opera mobile(the full touch version found on winmo and s60) is coming soon. I asked about setting default browser but dolphin asked by default. Though I wonder if once opera or firefox is out, would it be possible to set those as default.
And then there is the issue that even with dolphin as default, it doesnt change what the Web button does. Oh well.
when you use the web button on the home page it will open the first thing in the the original browser and once you go to a different page, say the golf channel dolphn kicks in.
a weird quirk, when i get time i will try to find a fix or workaround on the intertubez
Search the market for "Opera"
There will be an App called "Make Opera Default Browser"
Download and install. Don't launch the App.
Click a link in an email or SMS it should ask for default browser select Make Opera Default and save setting.
Works fine for me.
How do you delete bookmarks on the stock B2 browser. I can't figure this out. What am I missing?
If you go to the bookmarks and long press a bookmark, a menu will come up. Scroll all the way down for delete bookmark.
