1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    I use Google as my default search in my web browser. It appears that every single search I do on my PC in Google gets downloaded to my Droid as search history. I stay logged in on the Droid continually. Is there anyway to bulk clear that history on the Droid? Every time I close Firefox my search history gets cleared. That doesn't seem to be the case for the Droid browser, where the search history just keeps piling up. I can manually clear it, entry by entry. But that is a nuisance. A single clear operation would be handy. Settings | Clear history doesn't do it.

    So, you're the one. I knew someone somewhere was still using the native browser. I just didn't know who. :)

    Sorry, some times the kid in me just takes charge!!

    Seriously, I have no direct answer to your question. Other than to try using one of the vastly superior browsers for android. I use xScope on the Droid and Dophin HD on the Nook Color tab (rooted running 950 mhz). I find both easier and much quicker to use.

    Good luck and again, sorry for being a smart..... !!!

    Had no idea there was anything other the browser that came on the phone. I'll check other browsers.

    There's a Firefox (my browser of choice on the PC) and an Opera version too. I've never used either of them because I like the xScope too much. But as I said I use Dolphin HD on the NC and it works great too.

    Good luck and enjoy.

    Figured it out. Deeply buried in the Googleplex is a web history listing. Even though FF is set to clear browser search history it doesn't do it on the website. A good day. I learned something.
