    Really now.. I think this phone does need a scrollbar for those long pages. Just scrolling through this forum on the mobile site can take almost 20 thumbswipes (and that's in portrait mode, i can only imagine landscape ) for one page, and my thumb is getting really upset about it.
    To make it 'blend' with the 'beauty' of this webOS thingy, the scrollbar could be made to be visible ONLY when you put your finger on the right-side edge of the screen, and for added eye candy, make it translucent when it is visible.

    Exactly. I'm patchless, tweakless and homebrewless. I won't do it out of 'principal'. We shouldn't have to do all that to make this phone functional.
    But you already know where i stand on all that, Shada.
    And thanx again for being a big help on my other thread
    It wouldn't be the same, without you and my 'mistress' lol ha ha ha.

    I would love scroll bars.

    Even if the scrolling just showed a checkerboard it would be sweet to have.

    Scrollbars are not that great. I had a nokia 5800xm and it had scrollbar / touchscreen combo. Very hard to grab. I nice quick swipe scrolls pretty far...

    Edit- I see what you are saying though, the browser does scroll pretty slowly. In other parts of the phone a flick will get you a lot farther.

    +1000. Welcome to my 'want scrollbars' club. I submitted the request to Palm, so I am sure they got right on it.

    Dang. You must have a lot of passwords memorized.

    But have you tried using your index finger, in landscape mode? Just half a swipe does wonders.

    For the record, the use of scrollbars is barbaric and uncivilized.

    PS - dbd not using homebrew out of principal made me chuckle.

    You wouldn't believe how many usernames and passwords i keep in my head. It gives me a headache sometimes. I have different passwords for everything, in case some guy in a black trenchcoat with a black ski mask, sitting at a computer in a dark corner of a dark basement figures one of my passwords out.

    Hey, Xyg.. Haven't seen you for a while. I guess i'm getting better, with my effort to impress you if I made you chuckle.
