| | Re: WoW!!! What is up with the Track pad and the Browser?
torberry, work on navigating web pages almost entirely with the touch screen. Double tap where you want to zoom and read, double tap again to zoom back out, etc. Don't use the trackpad to click links and buttons, nor to scroll. Touch and drag to scroll, tap on links to open, touch and hold to open menu,.etc.
I agree it is to much trouble trying to navigate with the trackpad, and I encountered same things you mentioned. I think I've actually clicked links when my thumb was hovering over the trackpad and hadn't touched it.
Use the trackpad only when you have to and condition your brain to use the touch screen. That's what I'm doing, at any rate, and it seems to be the intent of the design and design-trade-offs.
