    Hi all,

    In Mobile Safari on my iPhone4 I tend to use the scroll to top gesture a lot.
    But the gesture for that was swipe from the top of the page down, which of course is the gesture for opening the notification centre now.
    Does anyone know of another way (preferably convenient) to scroll to top in web pages on iOS5?
    Because I'm missing it already, and all my searches didn't help :S

    Tnx.

    same here with beta 5, if i tap the top, it scrolls to top. if i pull down from top, notification center opens.

    The gesture has always been tap the top to scroll up

    Is there a way to go to bottom of a web page quickly without scrolling?

    You're right!
    Tap and swipe both work.
    I always thought it was swiping from the top to go to the top of the page!

    Thanks all!

    Yes there is, however it's not an ingrain component of iOS. There is a javascript bookmarklet that you can create that will perform the action. You'll have to forgive me for not looking it up, but if you Google "iOS scroll top bookmark" I promise you'll find it!
