    I am not sure if this is actually known to most out there already. If so I apologize, but I wasn't aware until I stumbled onto it accidentally.

    On a webpage when you zoom into a text area to make the font larger, if you then double-tap at the zoomed in level, the browser will automatically reflow the text to fit the page width. This seems to work at all zoom levels and works well!

    Again, sorry if this was known, but I was a bit peeved at having to scroll left-right to read zoomed in text before I learned this.

    If you hit the down arrow on the tab you will get the navigation bar.

    That is a nice tip too. Just realized what you meant now about that little arrow. Very nice, I hate scrolling all the way back up to the top from a long page just to get to the back/forward/bookmark navigation items. Nice.

    You can use the XOOM's "back" button on the bottom left as a BACK button in the browser as well.
