    Get the URL to show at the top of the browser by pulling the screen down. LongClick (touch and hold) on the URL and wait for the options to appear.

    Share copies the URL and the page title and puts in your choice of GMail, Email, Message, Facebook, Twitter.

    or Copy page URL just copies the URL into you clipboard.

    To paste, you just LongClick in any text field.

    how do you copy/paste or otherwise refer a market link to a friend?
    the web address seems to be invisible if using the "Market" app in android handset.

    If you have it installed on your phone you can use the App Sharing app that is pre-installed on the phone. You launch App Sharing, it gives you a list of your apps you choose one and it asks how you want to send it. It then puts a link to the market for that app in your message/post.

    I haven't worked out how to do it if you don't have it installed though.
