    There are a couple of options within the browser I didn't find until after searching for it, so I thought I would share it with the rest of the community in order to help out.
    -Everyone should clear the browser cache and previous history in order to save internal phone memory. To do this go to BROWSER press the MENU button and press MORE. There should be a list of things in there but what you should be interested in is the last item which is SETTINGS. From there in privacy settings there will be options to clear both cache and history.
    - Another little tip I wanted to share was viewing webpages in landscape mode without opening your keyboard. To do this simply press the MENU button from within the BROWSER and go down to FLIP ORIENTATION. You should realize tho by doing this you browser will continue to be in landscape the next time it's used. In order to return it to it's normal portrait mode just follow these steps once again.
    -There are a number of other things you can mess around with or find with the MENU button within the browser so just take a look at it yourself even if you don't want to do any of these tips.

    Hmmm not sure try restarting, if that doesn't work try taking out the battery and sim and putting it back in after 30 seconds.

    How about page up/down, and home/end keys? Constantly dragging my finger across the screen annoys the piss out of me.

    I find the keyboard shortcuts really handy when you have the keyboard out. Here are some of the ones I found.

    Code (Text):
    1.  
    2. Menu+Space  Homepage
    3. Menu+W      Close current window
    4. Menu+T      Open window selection
    5. Menu+J      Back
    6. Menu+K      Forward
    7. Menu+B      Bookmarks
    8. Menu+L      Enter URL
    9.  
    Very handy when you have the keyboard out and speeds up navigation.

    You forgot Menu+R to refresh the page.

    Anyone figure out the cmd key for sharing a page easily? I am stumped by that. On my Sidekick it was Menu+E. Not the case here.

    The way I do it is while on the page, hit menu button then you get a textbox to enter a new URL in, but it already has your current URL so just press and hold on it and Copy.

    Now it's in your clipboard and you can type a message and paste it or something.

    Probably not the ideal way you are wanting though.

    @Graham - You can hit menu, more, share which is fast...I was just looking for a cmd key option.
