    Anyone notice that the browser is missing scroll bars from frames?

    I tried looking up train times on www.njtransit.com and the times were cut off bc of the frame.

    I'll post a pic when I get home... I can't seem to find a working file uploader from the pre.

    Thanks.

    Edit: This is what I mean:



    See, the text is cut off in a frame in the web page. I can't scroll!

    I don't really mind about the entire page scrollbar. My complaint is about a frame. There's no way to see the data.

    there is no need for scrollbar.. just tap - press and hold your finger to the screen of the webpage and it will move in any direction you want.

    or you may pretend that your finger is already the "mouse pointer.." lol

    the page really does move to any direction as long as your pressing, holding and moving your finger on a website.

    You can also use the gesture area to scroll through pages when you're browsing in landscape.

    Guys, he is talking about FRAMES on pages, like iFrames and regular frames. The content of the frames does not scroll like whole pages/the rest of the pages do. I have experienced this with iFrames - you cannot scroll to see the rest of the content beyond what you see when the page first loads. I haven't tried any sites with regular frames yet.

    tap the screen twice and the whole page resizes to fit the screen

    Sorry, that is not what is being talked about. We're talking about frames/iFrames - pages within other pages - that don't scroll in the current Pre browser. Only the outer page/parent frame scrolls. It isn't about resizing anything.

    It isn't about what phone does what, it is about adding basic functionality to the Web browser.

    If you rotate the phone horizontally you can use the gesture area to scroll up and down

    I like the scroll bar so I can know where I am on a page. Like when reading a news article, the bar lets you know where you are in the article. And even in forums it gives you an idea where you are, middle, or towards the bottom of the page or

    A mobile browser that does this well is Skyfire. I wish there was a Web OS version of Opera or Skyfire.
