    This is the fastest way that I know of right now to get a web page displaying on your PC in a browser to your phone. You will need the following applications; Either Google Chrome and QR-tag extension generator(for Chrome), or Firefox and QR-tag extension generator(for Firefox) , and this one for your phone Barcode Scanner v3.3 Application for Android you don't have to use this app there are many others out there(doesn't have to be an Incredible phone either).

    It should be pretty easy to figure this out now that you see the apps involved but I will explain. First is the obvious, you need to get all apps installed and running on both pieces of hardware. Second when you are on the web page you would like to take with you you simply click on the QR-Code app in your toolbar of Chrome and it will display a QR-code then open your QR-Code reader on your phone and line up the QR-code in its sights. Then simply select web browser and your there.

    You will notice on androilib's website they use QR-code's as well. Simply line up your reader and select web browser and it will take you to the app in the Market on your phone.

    Thought I would share this as I have nothing to do on this windy Sunday afternoon in Southern California. I would normally be surfing.

    Opera browsers sync links across platforms. Make it a favorite on the pc and it shows up on mobile versions ota. FYI

    Once we get Froyo this will work but for now its a no go.

    To comment on Opera. I for one don't like the layout of Opera and two you don't have to create a link so there is no clutter that you have to clean up after you pull the page up on your phone with the QR-code method. But I'm not trying to tell you how to do anything just trying to help others that don't use Opera I guess.

    Anybody can send a link to their phone but not many can take a picture of their screen and have it show up on their phone.

    Do you have a web cam? You can do the opposite if you do.

    Thats odd. Have you tried uninstalling and giving it another try? User unknown......that sounds like the browser isn't being recognized, could be another extension like an ad-blocker masking the browser identity.

    I use a program called "evernote". Just copy and paste in a note and open it on any device I want.

    Works well for transferring pics and other stuff also...
