Browsing to a long page in the standard browser on my Galaxy S phone, I just realised how hard it is to go back to the top of the page ( after having scrolled to the end ).

Is there a way ( some gesture or something ) to simulate the 'Home' and 'End' keys one can use when using a PC browser programs ? E.g. to quickly go to the top or the end of the page ?

You could zoom all the way out and zoom back in at the top ... not ideal I know. – Matthew Read Mar 31 '11 at 16:10

No, but this can easily be done using gestures in Dolphin Browser HD.

Have to try the Dolphin browser again than ... did so a couple of months ago when I first got my mobile, but wasn't that impressed with it. Maybe it was because of the lag-problem with my Samsung (at the time - that's much better now I upgraded to Froyo 2.2.1). Can't remember why I uninstalled Dolphin it. But I will give it a try again ... thx – Edelcom Mar 31 '11 at 9:09
I abandoned it after the first time I tried it too, but after I tried it again and got used to it, I can't browse without it. – Matt Mar 31 '11 at 11:29
great answer, I was looking for this too. – Matt May 1 '11 at 1:41
