    I want to find the browsing history on my Samsung Galaxy 2 4G, not delete it. Those times when I could find it was akin to waving a decapitated corps of a chicken over it three times while reciting the Kalevala. Is there some secret handshake I need to give my Samsung before it will divulge its secrets to me?

    None of the above removes the browser history people.
    Yet this post would lead people to believe it does work. The back button for the browser will show all the sites you have visited. If you are going to provide support be clear to the people asking…it would appear that it works, but in fact it does not!

    I feel really stupid asking this, but HOW do you clear the cache cookies and history in the Galaxys2? I’m assuming by browser you mean the internet icon? If so I see no options, just a google page. I am still very new to the phone and trying to figure out something that should be simple is getting absolutely infuriating.

    I just got a new evo through esurian. On my old phone, I used to be able to clear data in the settings for the market. On this new phone it is not giving me the option to do that. The buttons are there, but they are shaded. Any ideas???

    Follow-up on my above post:

    Download the app: History eraser (it’s free) and the interface is simple and your browser will clear. In fact you can choose what to clear – it will clear most anything.

    The question is, how do you clear the download history in Android devices running 2.2? When i was on 2.1, there was the ability to clear your download history but in 2.2 they seem to have removed this function.

    • taz

      July 15, 2011 at 11:23 am

      @ Ash,

      Same problem with 2.3. There’s no clear download history option anywhere!

      • Neal Pradeep

        July 15, 2011 at 12:24 pm

        Download option is there in the article..kindly look out for the same.

      You can move your downloaded stuff (in Thinkfree Office) to another, or new folder. Everything you move will disappear from Download History.
