I've installed Dolphin which I love, but the search box on the homepage always defaults to the regular browser. I'd prefer it just go into Dolphin right can I do this?

I had the same issue, it also meant that other apps such as Twitter, Facebook etc would launch the stock Browser app instead of Dolphin. – therefromhere Nov 19 '11 at 20:10

In settings, goto applications > internet > clear defaults. Next time you perform a search it should ask you which you would like to use and simply select dolphin.

Internet doesn't show up, I tried Browser, but defaults is grayed out – Wil Sep 13 '10 at 20:10
It should give you the option to clear defaults under Browser. If its greyed out try doing the same for Google Search. – Matt Oct 14 '10 at 5:48
