 Hello all,  first of all, I have been using this group extensivily
over the past few months, and the information and interaction here is
amazing.  I am in the process of learning the Android environment and
you all have been a great help.....Thank you!!

Does anyone know if there is a Broadcast Intent for Browser Url
entries, or link clicks?  I am trying to find a way to duplicate the
Browser history log real time and appending to a local .txt file.  I
have searched and searched and it doesn't seem to exist at this time.

     So if that's the case, is the function for writing the native
history log just a function of the Browser activity?  If yes, can
UrlInterceptHandler be used to lift the url data and convert to a
string for .txt append without having to pass all the data back to the
browser?  The documentation for UrlInterceptHandler seems a bit
sketchy.  I found a code example for Gears at the following link,

 http://android.git.kernel.org/?p=platform/frameworks/base.git ;a=blob;f=core/java/android/webkit/gears/UrlInterceptHandlerGears.java;h=95fc30f3f744b8323893a019bf4b32017fb09194;hb=54b6cfa9a9e5b861a9930af873580d6dc20f773c

But this application appears to compile all data from a Cached url,
pull data, then pass it back to the browser to be executed.  Not sure
if this is the best method for achieving my goal.

I would love to hear your thoughts.
