    I love my iPad but I have noticed a 'few' websites don't quite load properly "missing scroll bars in java based windows, or not being able to run webforms" as they do in Safari on OSX. I'm not talking about flash based sites but sites they use java and or php. The sites I'm referring to are work related so I can't share them but I'm wondering if others have experienced this in a similar fashion. Do you think we'll see the browsing experience improve?

    Try using two fingers to scroll through scrollbar-less windows :cool:

    Shoesy! THAT WORKED! Thanks :)

    Yeah, I love atomic for the tabs. The webforms thing isn't a big issue anyways. But the 2 finger scroll is perfect!

    Thanks again :)

    No worries - it was a bit of a revelation when I first heard of it too!

    Me too. There are other little gems like this. Double tapping Home brings you to the first page of your home screens, for instance. I eventually found 'the manual.' It's in the iBook store.

    Don't forget, press home button and sleep button at same time to take a screen shot. Hand for map shots for those with WiFi but plan a trip while connected on Google maps. Just take a screen shot of every leg. Then you can scroll through the images wile on the road.
