    Users can simply open any of the URLs from email as well as the default browser and then they will have to set ‘Use by Default for this action’ while choosing Skyfire.

    If there is any other program that has already been set as the default browser, then users can undo this by;
    • Tapping on the ‘Home’ button
    • Then choose the option denoted as ‘Settings’
    • Now select the option titled as ‘Applications’
    • Then choose the option denoted as ‘Manage Applications’
    • Now choose the application
    • Tap on the ‘Clear Defaults’ action
    This is how users can set Skyfire as the default browser in android.

    Cool Re: How to set Skyfire as the default browser in android?

    Hi

    To make a browser as default..try the following..


    Go to your phone settings, Applications, manage applications


    scroll to the current default browser and click "clear defaults".


    The next time you do anything that wakes up a browser it should ask you which one would u choose..


    Select the "Use as default"


    Let me know whether that worked


    Thanks

    You can Access the browser page by many different procedures, best way to set any App as a default for particular type of file is as follows, Go to settings--> Applications --> Manage Applications --> Clear All the Defaults, this will eventually clear all the default Apps configured. Now when open a File will pop up an option to choose the default App for that particular type of file, using this you can set Skyfire as default Browser.

    Re: How to set Skyfire as the default browser in android?

    If you don't have any of your browser as default then you can easily do it by opening a link from there it will ask as if to open with what application then select the Skyfire and also remember to check the use by default box. If you already have any of the browser as default then navigate to settings->application->manage application and find the default browser set by you and tap on it then select clear defaults and the next time you use your phone's browser it will as for "perform action using" then select the "sky fire"
    as the default one.
    Hope it is useful.

    Re: How to set Skyfire as the default browser in android?

    To chose any alternate app as default, you'll have to first clear the 'Defaults' of the currently default app.



    To remove a app as Default, do the following--->

    1. Open Settings.

    2. Select Applications.

    3. Press Manage Applications.

    4. Select All Tab.

    5. Chose the Default Android Browser.

    6. Press Clear Defaults.



    Next, Choose the default app--->

    1. Press the Web Browser icon.

    2. Press the tick mark on Use as default.

    3. Select the Sky Fire app.

    this will make Sky Fire the default app for web browsing.

    First of all you need to clear all the previous defaults set for browsers in the Android device..
    to clear the Browser defaults..
    Go to Settings >> Applications >> Manage Applications >> Choose the application >> Clear Defaults..
    This will clear all the previous defaults for Browser..
    now when you open the link through Skyfire..
    it will ask you if you want to make it default application for Browsing the internet..

    this is how you can set Skyfire as default app..
