    I thought ICS was going to be instintive, or something like that. Call me crazy but that's hard to find.

    I use the full screen deal in the lab options but it's still two steps. No biggie, if it's annoying, I'll switch to dolphin. That's the beauty of android. If you're not a fan, change it.

    I'm still flabbergasted at the fact that you have to take 2 steps to get to your bookmarks in the browser. There's got to be a bookmark shortcut that you can have at the top of the browser, right?

    Wish I could find a single step solution because the way its laid out is not very good in my opinion.

    Need to check out the lab options and see what all that can do .

    I dont really use bookmarks on a daily basis. I only use them to save pages I might forget or to make shortcut icons for my homescreens to certain pages, like my online banking sign in, for example. For me two steps doesnt really matter.

    Im not liking the two step access to bookmarks either. Id happilly sacrifice a little of the address bar to have an extra button up there.

    If you go into settings -> labs and enable quick control, you can more quickly get into your bookmarks. It a bit better IMO. You kind of need to fool with it to get the movement correct, but it does make it quicker to get there.

    I agree that this is not as seamless as it should be, a step down from the previous method.

    Another loss for me is that you can just drag down the page and see the address bar with the reload icon. I often want to reload a page and you have to go through a few hops to get to that function.

    Put the bookmarks on your "desktop" all in one folder. That would take out the steps of opening browser, hitting the windows button, then selecting bookmarks, then selecting the bookmark. A little more direct with shortcuts/bookmarks all in a folder on the home screen.

    I'd really like to see a Speed Dial page in the browser that can be setup as the home page, but putting your bookmarks in one folder on a home page works well for now.

    There is also the bookmarks widget, which is scrollable, if you don't mind using up a bit of screen real estate.

    Bookmarks can also be accessed by long-pressing the back button while in the browser

    This. I was actually surprised that it took this long for it to be posted. In other news, my data usage shot up 5x because of 4G.

    I wish the quick access shortcuts (enabled through Labs) included a bookmarks shortcut. But long pressing the back button works well enough for now.
