    I stumbled on a Safari feature that's useful at least for me if you are down towards the bottom of the page and need to zoom back to the top and don't want to finger scroll up. If you touch the area above the Bookmark icon it zooms right back to the top. Nice touch ! :cool:

    Yeah its been their for a while. It will work in most apps to, not just safari.

    I like it when I find new little things etc. It was only the other day (I think off here) I found out you can keep your finger on the back button in safari and it brings up the History :)

    OK cool, that's why I didn't want to take credit for the tip, hate being late to the party. :)

    I'm sure there are loads of stuff people don't know about. Most little features you just stumble upon :)

    I found that a couple yrs ago and use it daily now. I love it when you fine a new feature you didn't know about. It's like a little iOS Easter egg

    I kind of wish they had a feature to quick scroll to the bottom of a page...would be useful for forums.

    This is one of the best features. Whoever said they have been using it for years....I think it was just released in IOS 5

    I've used it for years, well before iOS 5.

    Awesome find! I think only a small percentage of users know about it!

    Another recent tip I found that probably existed all along is if you press and hold the "+" icon for a new tab, instead of a new tab, you can quickly open your recently closed tabs.

    Tapping the status bar to return to the top of the screen was there well before iOS 5.
