    Is there a way to grab the scrollbar when trying to get farther down a long website? Even quick finger flicks don't go fast enough for really big sites.

    Dolphin HD has a gesture that takes you to the bottom of the page. Very convenient for this forum since pages are 50 posts long by default.

    If you use a browser like xScope, you can set it to use the volume rocker to scroll. If you just hold it down it will scroll very fast. XScope is the fastest browser but lacks a few features like copy and paste.

    What about the default browser?

    The stock browser lacks features. That's why I use Dolphin HD. But some people want speed, so they use xScope. Unless there's a feature on the stock browser that you can't get elsewhere, I would try out other browsers. They can all be set up as the default browser.

    BTW, Dolphin HD has copy/paste (which I use all the time to copy url's and links into email and Facebook) and can use the volume rocker to scroll up and down. I turned it off because I would rather use the volume rocker to control the volume of my music player and Flash videos while I'm browsing.

    Thanks. I guess I need to look into other browsers.
