    Pretty simple tip to enable desktop sites in the stock browser without having to do the old about:debug trick.

    Open browser and click settings and then check request desktop site.

    Don't forget now that on 4.0 you can download Google Chrome and use that as your browser. I love it for my Xoom!

    Theres a data manager for those not on unlimited plans, or just curious about usage. Click Settings> Data Usage.

    This gives you an approximate idea of how much data you've used during a monthly cycle. The starting date of the month can be changed to match your billing cycle. A limit can be set, and when reached will automatically turn your data off to prevent overages.

    in Gb you could set a double tap on the home key to do a specific task. Is this available in ICS? If so this would be a good tip to know as I can't find it. :D

    That is still available. Click Settings> Accessibility, and scroll to the bottom for double tap home launch.

    This was available in GB, but is good to go through to improve voice command accuracy. Open voice commands and select the gear. There's an adaptation process where you recite a series commands so it will better understand you. There's also a shortcuts section where you can enable/disable what actions voice commands is able to initiate. That would be useful if an unintended app or action is constantly prompted by a common command.

    It got eliminated. Go to apps and look at running apps. Gives same basic information and controls.

    The only thing I have found (or I should say HAVEN'T found) is a way to do bookmarks on a screen as a shortcut. I like the intellicast.com website for animated weather radar for my area. I used to be able to do a shortcut in Dolphin Browser that I could just tap and it would open the web page with my radar. Dolphin has a "bookmarks widget" but it takes up way too much room on a screen, I would prefer the one icon. It's no longer in widgets, and I use Desktop Visualizer too, but it's not an option in there either. Anyone have any suggestions?
