    What is the best way to scroll web pages in the droid incredible? I use my finger to scroll (fast or slow).. and I keep accidentally clicking on links on the web page. I know I can use the optical track.. but not very fond of it for scrolling.
    Anyone?

    BUT.....I always hit the back arrow to exit, but it just takes me one page back. That I havnt perfected and I HATE IT! :mad:

    One day! :cool:

    I have no problem using the screen to scroll. Try cutting back on the caffeine so you're less twitchy and less likely to click instead of slide? ;)

    Dolphin HD browser has the option to use the volume buttons to scroll up and down. That seemed to work pretty well but I prefer just using the screen.

    It's Complicated
    Dribbled coffee down my chin when I read that.

    Using my finger to scroll has always worked for me, just be sure that you use a consistent pressure (not much is required) and be fluid in your motion.

    That's what I use and if your having a problem with hitting the links and you want to scroll to top/bottom quickly, this is your best option in my opinion

    Dolphin browser has gestures that, among other things, allow you to go to top or bottom of the page. Tap gesture icon and do a 'V' to the bottom or '^' to the top.
