Normally this kind of message would be sent as a private message. But since hn333 has private messages and visitor messages turned off, we have no option but a public message.

In the web browser settings you want to select "Clear history"

It works!!! All your books and periodicals remain. It's a quick and dirty way to clean up the Carousel when needed.

Now if we can get some customization options for it, that would be great. We should be able to select what content we want to show up there. I don't want my apps and web browsing history there. The favorites shelf is good enough for day-to-day app access and movies/tv shows. And we have browser bookmarks.
Here is a slightly quicker way to clear web pages from the Carousel. When in the stock browser you can press Web Menu --> History --> Clear All button, then click the Home button. Then even the current web page is removed.

This doesn't save much time, but at least you don't have to look for the Clear History option in the Settings menu.

Ahhhhhh. Thank you! Still wish I could clear other things from the Carousel, but this is a big help.

But no way to delete the books I recently bought from Amazon. Such as the racy freebies?

Nope I wish there was. Hubby was having fun looking at my carousel covers last night from my books archive.

What if you share the device with your kids... what if you read erotica ... what if you lost it and you were checking Bank of America or Wells Fargo site ...

I think it's a problem.

Good post SCION, Karma for that!
