    Hmm,

    Alls well that goes well with the new Froyo leak.

    However there is something that is annoying me with the default keyboard.

    Now there is a "Voice" search button on the bottom left of the Froyo keyboard, where there used to be a simple "Down" button that would hide the keyboard. I don't know if pressing the back key is something I can get used to for all of those login forms.

    Is there a way to bring back that "Down" button?

    I agree. It sucks. Which keyboards out there have something like that to hide the keyboard? I've always used stock.

    HTC IME mod keyboard for Froyo/Nexus one has this. It's the same as the HTC keyboard, but has a lot more options.

    You hit the back button now to close the keyboard. I actually like this improvement. What I don't like is I have to long-press the mic button to get the mic. If I just tap it, it asks me to select a language.
