    I can't figure out how to do this:

    How do you select all the text in a text box to delete it?

    Say I want to type in a new URL in the web browser, or delete most of the characters in a text box. Is there a way to do this, or do I need to type over every single character?

    For all it's flaws, damn it's cool

    I've found that by holding down the backspace key it will delete the whole entry...at least in the web browser bar. Not sure if this will happen anywhere else.

    When typing in the web browser bar, tap the X to the right of it and it'll wipe out the entire bar. Much easier than holding down the backspace key until it's all gone.
