    I am running Android 2.2 on my Evo (no rooting etc) and am using Opera as my default browser.

    Lets say that I followed a link from an RSS feed via Google Reader to this page: www.domain.com/news/some-cool-story.html and the webmaster hasn't provided a link to the main page (www.domain.com).

    Currently I have to click on the URL, go to the end and manually backspace away the /news/... part. That's problematic and a pain.

    What is the easiest way to jump to www.domain.com without all of those manual steps? Are there any apps or browser add-ons for that? Any tips or tricks?

    Thanks....
    Doug

    Is it no good to long press in the address bar, select, "select text", highlight wat you want n hit backspace once?

    Maybe you can get select text to work reliably but I can't..
