 Hello,

I see that there is no provision for navigating back on Android Browser. I
see that it does have a forward button. To go back, I am forced to use the
back button on the device but the problem with that it does not retain the
state of the page. I am curious if this is a feature or a bug ? If feature,
what is the rationale to do so? I have seen this behvaiour on Nexus One and
Motorola Devour.

Browser Back Button

 It bugs me.  Few activities override the back button this much.  I
feel like the official exit button in Android is hit the back button 7
times quickly, and I think the browser's behavior encourages this.

I understand that Android reduces the need for an exit button, but
IMHO there are many use cases where it's needed.  Largely for buggy
apps.  I frequently have to order Pandora on my Moto Droid to quit, so
I can restart it and get it to work.  Otherwise it just sits there
with a black screen.

I'd prefer it if the default browser had an explicit back item in the
menu, and if the back key closed the whole browser activity (caching
state).

My 2 cents,
-MK

 You can "close" the browser and retain state by just pressing the Home
key

 Modern PC browsers often let you go backwards and forwards while
retaining a lot of the page state.  This is awesome for the case you
fill out a giant online form, (like this one I'm filling out on
groups.google.com), but for some reason a bug occurs during the
submit.  That way when you go back you still have your form data.

On the other hand, for all I know that could be a trick particular
websites do using javascript.

2. Custom Account Preferences using AccountManager / AccountAuthenticators

HI All,

I've currently been able to make my own authenticator services which
are picked up by the account manager.  I can create, delete, modify,
etc via the AccountManager class.

The 'AbstractAccountAuthenticator' class documentation here:
http://developer.android.com/reference/android/accounts/AbstractAccountAuthenticator.html
describes setting up an preference xml file to do custom account based
preferences.

I am able to make custom account preference via this method which show
up on the 'AccountSyncSettings' activity for each managed account.  My
preferences have persistent state which imply they are saved somewhere
but I don't know where. Also I don't know how to access those
preferences from other applications/activity.  I've scoured the file
system on my nexusone and cannot see my particular key/value pairs
anywhere.

This "SampleSyncAdapter" sample code from google does not use custom
account preferences but I have seen other apps on the marketplace take
advantage of this successfully.  So I feel it's possible

Does anyone know where / how to access this info?
