I have installed Dolphin and like it, and I've made it my default browser, which is great. However, it is not only the system default, but it even opens links I click on in the Android provided browser (sometimes I both open). On your computer, when you click links in your non-default browser it doesn't send the links to the default one, and it shouldn't on this OS, either. Any ideas how to keep Dolphin as my system default browser, but not have it open links I click on in the Android web browser?
So I just got the HTC Evo yesterday and I've just been playing around with it. I just downloaded the free version of HD Dolphin because I wanted to try it. The thing is I can't figure out how to use it or set it as my browser. I can't even find it on my applications, but it says that it's installed when I go to the Market. And I tried to go to Settings Applications. But then I couldn't find anything on changing the default settings.
I have an specific requirement to change default home page of Android Browser which is by deafult "google.com" Can any give an idea how to change it like when I click on browser it should come like "yahoo.com".
I downloaded opera mini and have it and the stock browser on my phone. When I got it, it asked what I wanted to use as default for internet. Well my bookmarks mainly and I chose the stock. Now, I'm in Nigeria and the internet isn't great on my phone, but I'm getting a 100Mb allowance today. I want to revert to Opera as my default cause it uses less Mb and I am here for a month so want to stay within my quota. Is there any way to do this?
I know the google search bar at the top in ics is not just a google search, since you can adjust searchable items to include other apps, contacts, etc. But I primarily use it as a go to search engine from my home screen.
I have been using dolphin hd browser and while it is the default browser for opening links in gmail, etc, the search bar results always default to the stock browser when you click on them.
I looked through the forum and didn't find a clear answer on this. Is it possible to change the default browser for the google search widget? I use Opera and Operabridge won't do the trick. Every time the search will result on the regular browser.
I'm quite new to Android so please excuse if this is the wrong forum, but I have searched up and down and also this list, but is there no way to externally link from my website into the market to show my app within a desktop browser and not on the device? I mean similar to the iTunes links where you can view the application details right in any browser.
I am developing an app in which I am making a browser type app. Now as user try to open an URL in default browser, an intent resolver is come and ask user complete action using default browser or custom browser. This part of my app is completed. Now I want to ask if I choose to open the link in my custom browser how could I access that URL link. Means as I choose my browser I got blank web view, I am unable to get that URL Link, which I have to open in my web view.
How can we make our browser as default in android. I want to implement that when you open up the internet browser it gives you two options: regular browser and Mybrowser (third party browser which is made by me). If you select the regular browser it says that the phone cannot access the internet unless it is on the Mybrowser. Can we implement this feature? If yes than how?
won't stay default *launcher. After one of the recent Launcherpro updates I'm having this issue where the window pops up asking which launcher I want to use when hitting the home button. It's not remember to default to launcherpro even when clicking the default box. It seems to reset after holding the home button to bring up the recent apps window. Every time now without fail. Can you test it out to see how widespread this bug is? Please list your phone and rom.
I've got my work account set up in google, but I don't want it on my phone - so I only check email through the browser. However I like to have the stock browser still be my profile. So what I've done is set up Dolphin to have my work's profile. What I'd like to do is set up a short cut to a bookmark in Dolphin to open in dolphin. Anytime I've set up a shortcut to the URL on the screen it opens up in the stock browser - any way to make a specific shortcut to open a URL in an application of my choosing? I don't know enough of Linux/Android to try and edit some changes. My phone is a Magic (MyTouch3g for you americans) and is running 1.5 with SenseUI and is non-rooted.
I've set Dolphin to be my default browser that way when I open links from emails and such it'll use Dolphin. But at times I want to use the Stock Browser, I'll just open up "Internet" but when I get there and click on a link from within the Stock Browser, it'll open it up and move me to Dolphin. I pretty much want to say "Hey, if I open up the Stock Browser, I want to use it but otherwise use Dolphin for everything else".
Can anyone tell me what the default setting is for the homepage of the nexus one's browser (presumable the browser of any other non-carrier-messed-with handset too)? I changed it and now can't remember what it was to set it back again. It used to show a lite version of google.com.

My mother is having this random problem where her web browser closes, sends her back to the Google search page. It seems to only happen when she has some tabs open. Note that it does not force close it just crashes. She is very disappointed and would like to know the solution. My evo sometimes send me to the home screen but does not close.
I'm trying to make test-program that opens a website by pushing a button. I have made a listener and everything, my problem is just that, the url-opening-script makes an error and tells me "Uri cannot be resolved".
Here's the script I use to open up an webpage:
I have the import android.app.Activity;, import android.content.Intent; and import android.content.ContentUris; (maybe the last one isn't needed) so I can't find out what's wrong...
I hope someone knows what I've done wrong, or forgot to import...
Is it possible to mount an external USB thumb drive to access its data from a file browser on the phone? I tried plugging one of my USB drives into a USB-to-microUSB adapter and plugging that into the phone, but it didn't mount anywhere.
I have application in landscape orientation, I set it as <android:screen Orientation="landscape"> in Android Manifest.xml. But when my app starts another activity - default internet browser - it starts in portrait orientation.
I have a simple problem, i have loaded an external url in my webview. Now wat i need is that wen the user clicks on the links on the page loaded, it has to work like a normal browser and open the link in the same webview... but its opening the androids default browser and loading the page there?
I prefer the style of build-in browser. It looks more neat to me. However, it sometimes has trouble bringing up flash player even on youtube. It also won't open the log in page when I am connected to college wireless. Moreover, it would struggle to open some websites like Oregon Coast- Travel Lane County(If you change the date and click search, nothing will happen.)Well, skyfire can solve all these problems. It always open any kind of videos for me as long as it's flash. When I connect to wireless that requires log-in on website, skyfire would pop up the site as soon as I open skyfire. The most important part is that it can open all the websites I need.I really love the feeling of built in browser but how come it sucks that badly? I installed skyfire since 6/4, and I barely use it since I really prefer the default browser. But now I really hope google or HTC can fix and improve the performance of the browser.
I am familiar with Froyo 2.2 and the ability to set certain apps as "default" apps for certain functions, however, I am having a problem (or perhaps that is just the way it is???) with choosing a default browser. I am also familiar with clearing the default choices in the Application Manager.
So, in an email or through another app, I click on a link and get a popup to use either the default "Internet" browser or the "Dolphin" app that I have installed. I CHECK the checkbox to "use this as default" and then go off to my link.
Then say I go to another email with another link, I get the SAME POPUP to choose between the default browser or Dolphin.
I have done some research and tried, from within Dolphin itself, to set Dolphin as THE DEFAULT browser, however choosing that setting within Dolphin does NOT work either! I still get the popup whenever I follow a link.
QUESTION: is there a way to set my default browser choice for ALL MY WEBS LINKS?? It appears that whenever I click on a previously un-visited link in an email or an app, I get the popup asking me what browser to use.
I would like to set Dolphin to launch for ANY AND ALL LINKS I might click on in any app on my phone....is that possible?
In the Dolphin Browser, I clicked on a YouTube link and a "Complete Action Using" dialog box thing popped up. It gave the option of viewing the video in a browser or in the native YouTube app. There was also a "Make this action default" checkbox at the bottom. I accidentally checked that box and chose the browser, not the YouTube app. Is there a way to revise this default action?
