With the stock browser when using a web page has a feature that requires dragging, how do you drag without moving the page?

For example, cropping an image on the Gravatar site requires dragging the boundaries, but whenever I try to, I end up moving the page... but not dragging.

UPDATE: I did notice on a third-party page with Google Maps embedded that the map did drag correctly. However, the above example still holds.

  • I don't know the answer either way but it may be helpful if you specify which browser you are using as there probably are browser specific aspects to this behavior. – Matt Sep 23 '10 at 23:23

With sites like Gravatar or Twitter's image cropping, I've found that the two finger "pinch" gesture works.

  • On my LG Optimus V, that just zooms. Not useful (to me). And I get the same behavior in Skyfire as the default browser. – RolandTumble May 26 '11 at 22:31

Double tap to enable drag?
