Default Switch home screens without swiping

I'm not sure if this is a Sense thing or a Honeycomb thing but I found it by accident. In landscape mode tap the edge of the screen (where icons aren't allowed) to go to the next screen in that direction. I hold me EVO View in landscape orientation so this is a welcome feature.

I believe that's a Sense thing left over from Gingerbread. From what I remember before updating to Honeycomb you could see the edge of homescreens on either side. Now you can't see them unless you start to swipe the screen a bit. It's handy to be able to just touch the edge of the homescreen to change.

Yes, very nice feature and I hope HTC keeps it in future Sense implementations.
