    When you are in the default browser that comes with the EVO and you want to go back 10 pages - Don't just click the button 10 times - Click and hold the button and your history will show up with Today's visited pages shown. Scroll to the page you want and Viola! you are back where you want to be.

    Also you can click menu to get an option for clearing your history.

    Great tip! Also, if you long press search the voice search feature is invoked.

    zombdroid, that is another great secondary key function, but it is actually system wide where as this one is just specific to the browser.

    Yep, and holding down the HOME button gives you a popup of your recently used apps.

    I guess the bottom line is when ever you are in any app or in the main Sense OS, Just hold something down (a button, picture, phone number, link, etc) and you will get a whole bunch of options you never knew you had!
