    How to hover over a link?

    Hope I posted in the right forum. This is more like a question for all touch devices. How do I hover over a link on my phone, so that it will show a whole list of things to choose in that option like I can do with a mouse? There are certain websites that I cannot access on my phone because of this problem, and it really limits my ability to use the internet. Is there an app to download, a certain way to touch the screen, or just simply impossible to do? It'd help me a lot. Thank you.

    If you're talking about right clicking, then the closest thing to that is long holding on the phone.

    Thank you for your reply, but that's not what I meant. Please take a look at the snapshot I just attached for example. I'm quite surprised I'm the only one who has this problem

    Hmm. I am not sure. Might want to make sure you have Adobe Flash Player installed. Its in the market. Hope that helps

    I got a Droid 2, so Adobe Flash Player already came with the phone.

    Looks like smartphones can't replace PC's just yet

    None of the browsers I've seen have a cursor, which limits scripts or css that use hover effects or anything of that type, I know a lot of web addresses don't have a mobile site, but if they do Id use it, google is just makin sure we still have to buy computers imo

    Not possible AFAIK....

    After a bit of searching I found the site you used as an example. Using Dolphin Browser HD the items with sub-menues have little arrows next to them. Just tap and you'll see the sub-menue.

    A quick check shows that this works on the stock browser as well.
