Wow, so after the the recent KitKat 4.4.2 update, the stock android web browser on my LG G2 has become a MASSIVE DATA HOG. No longer can you simply clear out the cache to shrink the crazy amount of data it stores, you now have to 'Clear Data' which completely wipes out ALL YOUR BOOKMARKS and some preferences. So a day's worth of web browsing can easily build a data cache of 150mb or more! Is there going to be a fix for this?
Well, as you approach say the 100mb + range of data then it does cause sluggish behavior... this also happened with HTC phones a couple years ago. So when you hit 'Clear data' it removes your bookmarks as well. Before the KitKat update, all you had to do was 'Clear cache'. Now all the cache info is somehow being saved with data or something. Oh, and that 20mb figure you see in the screen shot is from just an hour of modest web browsing. It's like is saves everything!
Oh, so how do you set the stock Android browser settings for private browsing? I thought only Chrome and Firefox allowed that.
Can you post a screen shot of what you're talking about? I don't think the stock web browser on my LG G2 can do that.
yeah, it's pretty straight forward to do it in the Chrome browser... its too bad that the KitKat update changed how the stock browser stores data now. : (
