By default, the stock Android Browser always starts-up with a blank page. If you hate typing the webpage address every time you want to visit a site, you can take advantage of the blank screen area at start-up and populate it with frequently visited sites. Continue reading to find out how.
If you are familiar with the start-up screen of mobile browsers like Opera, you will feel right at home after configuring the start-up screen to display your favorite sites. The only down side is that you are not allowed to remove a site from the list.
1. Open the app drawer, and launch the Browser app from there.
2. Once the browser is loaded, tap the menu key on your phone to open its menu. Choose Settings from the menu.
3. In the Settings screen, choose the General option, which is located at the top.
4. Tap on the Set homepage option to configure it.
5. In the new Set homepage window, instead of choosing the Blank page option, choose Most visited sites.
6. The window will dismiss automatically after your setting is changed.
7. Come back to the main app interface. You will notice that frequently visited websites are now listed by a 3 x 4 grid with thumbnails.
