    If i had a laptop it would be 2 fingers but i dont so it is the arrow keys/ arrow things for me. If i need to get to the bottom/top of the page thought, it is apple + arrow.

    The two-fingered trackpad trick works dreams for me. I like it when I'm on a webpage that's wider than the window too...

    Mighty Mouse for me!

    And possibly a wireless one soon - bloody Apple and talking me into buying things I don't really need ;)

    I use one fingered trackpad scrolling.

    I have the sidetrack driver installed on my old G3 ibook. Works like a charm.

    Two-fingered scrolling is amazing. I was a bit skeptical when I first got my Powerbook, but now I don't know how I ever lived without it on my old iBook!

    I prefer using my iMac so I use my logitech mx518's scroll wheel. But sometimes, I'll use the "page up," "page down," "home," and "end" keys.

    On my iBook-- two finger scrolling on the track pad.

    There's a hack for the iBook. I downloaded it and loved it. The built-in on the PB is great, too.

    Two fingered trackpad scrolling even though when I go to use another laptop I'll get really angry and frustrated because it doesn't have that particular feature.

    Two fingered scrolling definitely.

    I sometimes use Cmnd + down, but can't use Comnd + Up.

    For those that are bound to ask why, Command + Up is my Quicksilver hotkey. It just felt a little bit more natural than the ctrl + space that it was set on before.

    Mighty Mouse, when the scroll ball is working. Otherwise I use the arrows or pull the scroll bar.

    With the scroll wheel or two-fingered scrolling. Sometimes with the keyboard.

    When forced to scroll with the scroll bar, I have "Jump to Here" enabled by default, so I can click anywhere in the scroll bar and have the pill come to me.
