Default How to refresh page?

Ok, I knew how to refresh a webpage by long press but that does not seem to work on the evo. Anyone got it to work?

Does pressing the menu button bring up a menu that has the refresh option on stock android browser? It does on Dolphin HD

You just need to press menu and the refresh icon.

Edit: Had to grab my phone and double check, I was wrong about that, sorry.

No it doesn't. That menu does not have refresh, although it should.

howie is exactly right, it is the little two arrows that make a circle to the right of the url at the top of every web page. It is kind of hidden up there unless you scroll up to it.
