    I am sure I must be missing something, but my Galaxy S2 is now my fourth Android phone, and I've still not found how to quickly get to my homepage in the browser. Eg...I have google.co.uk as my homepage. I search something, click a link, the another and another. Now I'm finished and want to get back to Google....there must be a home button or something?

    Menu button -> ... More -> Home :)

    EDIT: I hope, that it is with the Galaxy the same as with my HTC

    Nope. Menu -> gives me options to add a bookmark, add a shortcut to home, find, page info, share page, downloads, settings and print. No ability to just go 'home'.

    Only way I can do it is to open a new page. But then my old page is still there in the background.

    So I think, with the Galaxy, there isn't an option at the browser's setting for 'Set home page'? :(

    I have dolphin browers installed on mine and there is a gesture option, if you touch the gesture button then make a G sign on the screen it takes you to Google.

    My homepage is also google. I just press menu, bookmarks and my first bookmark is google. Would be nice to have a dedicated home button though.
