    My browser got a bit out of whack (for some reason the default Google search page stopped displaying the search field). Also the 'data' was taking up almost 10MB and I'm running low on application disk space (dammit they have to find a way to let us store apps on our sdcards)

    Anyway.. I did a "clear data" thing on the browser, thinking this would only clear temporary internet files, but it reset everything (wiped out my favorites and saved passwords :(

    I hope one day this can work differently. Until then, anyone know how to clear temp internet files manually?

    Doing "clear data" in the settings of the browser application info screen is one sure way of clearing up memory on the G1 but it also does clear the browser's bookmarks, history and cookies.

    However, there is a workaround such that you can retain your bookmarks even if you do "clear data" and this is by creating bookmark shortcuts. If you have a lot of bookmarks, you can organize them by creating folders and moving the bookmarks to folders.
