    Just got an HTC Incredible. I'm not sure if this just applies to Incredibles or all Droids. Love the phone but can't seem to solve one problem. I'm a Google Chrome user so I'm used to typing search terms in to a browser address bar. On the Incredible's browser, when you erase a web address from the address bar and start typing in a search term, it automatically prepends it with http:// . Is there any way to not have it automatically do that? Seems redundant since you don't need it to reach a website any more.

    Thanks,
    MK

    This is the stock browser I assume? I just tried it on my Vibrant and it worked as you would expect it to...no http:// was auto inserted. Have you looked in options? I checked and found nothing relating to that.
