    I can, but sometimes dont want to. Even my old blackberry had a choice to go straight to home. How do we advance so far and then forget/scrap the basics? I like android alot, however, i would have stayed blackberry if they had a dual core device. Android is like the really muscular stupid dude we all know. He is a beast. But really really stupid. No finesse or grace just muscles everywhere. I am thouroghly annoyed.

    Wow.

    Somehow I feel like the effort of clicking on the http bar and typing the first letters of your homepage and then clicking on the anticipated popup is just as quick as hitting menu > homepage button. I'm not sure what to tell you. Have you tried out different browsers? Firefox? Dolphin? Maybe they have a hot button.

    I'm going to chime in with another vote for Dolphin. I really liked Opera, but I love Dolphin ... Both have been better than the browser that came with the phone....
    Enjoy!

    I think that certain apps affect things like gps and other systems on my phone. I dont really have any proof, only my pwn theories.

    Top left corner is a picture of a little house, that's the home button.

    Have you actually set a homepage in dolphin? Pressing that house takes you to your homepage, at least mine does.

    Bookmark your homepage, and then whenever you want to go to it from another web page, just scroll the page down all the way and tap the star in the upper right-hand corner to access your list of bookmarks, and then tap your homepage bookmark.

    thanks Chuck, i am aware of some of the tricks you can do to get around not having the home button. I compare it to people complaining about how the smartphones these days have extra steps (or even 1 extra step) for making a simple telephone call. I am happy to have found a browser with the homepage button, ahhhh the simple things in life. I think it is really great how many options we have for web browsers. Android does have a zillion options for everything and i can appreciate that. Perhaps i was a little harsh on android, comparing them to a big stupid muscular dude.

    You can always make it a bookmark ... like your first bookmark.

    I agree, even though there are work arounds to get to your home page, it is pretty dumb not to include a home button. Just seems like one of the basic features of a browser.

    Anyway, I have tried most of the 3rd party browsers and stumbled across Maxthon Browser. This has now become my browser of choice...

    Dolphin HD is the best browser. Bar. None.

    iI am back to the samsung browser. I really liked dolphin browser, however it is not refined enough and there are several tiny glitches that drive me crazy. I am gonna have to live without a home button.
