android webview stay in app

I have a webview in my android app, but when someone navigates around the site, it opens in a new window, i want it to stay inside the webview.. is there a way to do this easily? Here is the code in my activity:

super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
setContentView(R.layout.shop);
WebView webview;
webview = (WebView) findViewById(R.id.webview);
webview.getSettings().setJavaScriptEnabled(true);
webview.loadUrl("http://www.google.co.uk");

Answer

You'll have to create a WebViewClient:

public class myWebViewClient extends WebViewClient {
    @Override
    public boolean shouldOverrideUrlLoading(WebView view, String url) {
        view.loadUrl(url);
        return true;
    }
}

And then set it to your WebView like this:

webview.setWebViewClient(new myWebViewClient());
