Querying the standard browser

 Is it possible to interface with the standard browser?

I would like to know what urls are open in all browser windows/tabs,
maybe the history for each window/tab and finally the position(what
text is visible, scrollbar percent etc.) of each window.

Is this possible?

I've looked at the tutorials for webview, but it only seems to be able
to display a new url. If I could iterate all open windows/tabs as
webviews I think I could get the information out that I'm looking for.

1. Service message for App installation

With J2ME devices you can construct a binary SMS, called a service
message, which has the location of a JAD encoded in its payload. When
sent to a handset, the OS recognises this and doesn't attempt to store
it as an ordinary SMS, instead just prompts the user to "Install
XYZ?". This then starts the JAD/JAR handshaking process, resulting in
the app being installed. In other words, there is a standard for
pushing apps via OTA.
It seems with Android the closest you get is to send a plaintext SMS
with a URL of the APK.
Is this the only way to push apps?
And is there a difference between market and non-market apps when
doing this?

2. How to determine what input methods are available on device


Does anyone know if there is some way on Android to determine what set
of languages the user has set up for text entry?  E.g. could I call a
function like


that would return a list of strings like "en", "ja" etc which would
indicate that the device was set up for English and Japanese keyboard
input or something similar?

Many thanks in advance
