Every time I click on a link in the webview, it takes me out of the webview and into a separate browser window. How do I get all the links to open in the webview?

You need to implement setWebViewClient(....) like so.

webView.setWebViewClient(new WebViewClient() {



public boolean shouldOverrideUrlLoading(WebView view, String url) {


        return true;
