    I use dolphin browser and they have a button just for this. When your lower in the page and start scrolling up a little button appears at the bottom right that you can tap to fly to the top.

    You can hold the capacitive menu button.

    You can use this to either bring up the search bar (in context of the app eg in the play store, emails, maps etc) or to do a global search

    Thanks! I knew there must have been a shortcut!

    But now I have another question... lol Once I hold the menu key the address bar shows up... but how do you make it go away again? Because it looks like as long as I'm on that webpage... the address bar stays there until I load the next website.

    You can enable the quick controls in the browser settings under labs. That enables you to press the edge of the screen to bring up different options. Go to tabs, etc.

    Check out another browser, like dolphin or Chrome. Stock browsers usually always suck. I've been using Dolphin for a couple years now but once I get my S3 with ICS I'm switching to Chrome because I absolutely love the sync feature.

    Isn't there an option in the phone settings that allows you to tap the top of the device twice to go to the top of any page?

    I wish the "tap to top" gesture worked in the browser and other programs/apps.

    Either press the capacitive back button or tap the screen on the webpage
