Bravo: How do I return to the browser home screen?

2011-01-18, 15:19 PM

I have set my Bravo's browser home screen to m.yahoo.com.  After browsing through a few pages and bookmarks, I would like to return to my home screen.  Is there a button I can press to do that?

I've already set a bookmark for m.yahoo.com, and I know I can go to My Bookmarks to get back to my home page, but every browser I've ever seen has a Home button.  Am I missing something obvious about the browser?

I agree - I have been unable to find an easy way to get to the home page.  I also am looking for an easy way to close/exit the internet browser service. I have a limited data plan and want to be sure that after I have found my internet information, I can close out and feel confident that I am no longer using data.

The only solution I have found so far is to either hold the home key until the task manager comes up or add it as an icon on the home screen.  I then use the task manager to 'stop' the web browswer app. 

Anyone else have a better answer?  Is there an app for this?

Inside the web browser hit "menu" button, then windows, then close all open windows and it will return you to the home "window"

chromeguy2011 is right, other than bookmarks that is the easiest way but if you have to do that you might as well just go to bookmarks. You can also add bookmarks to your homescreen but it opens a new window every time you tap on it and wil eventually just bog down your phone.

You really need to get used to closing all of the windows that you have open.  It is the same as having tabs open but you just can't visually see how many windows you have open with hitting "menu" then "windows".  Kind of a strange way of doing it but it doesn't take up your limited screen real estate the way that they have it designed.

pdayton,

You might want to try the Dolphin browser available in the Market. It has the Home button functionality you are looking for. It is also a tabbed browser, so it is much easier to move between open pages and close ones you no longer need.

One other option is menu->new window. The new window will launch with your default home page.

It is not ideal, but is how the browser works - maybe a future android update will change this behavior.
