    I agree with RosarioM... It's NOT that big of a deal. Regardless of which method is better, we're talking about zooming here. I really don't think any of our lives will drastically improve when "pinch to zoom" is a browser feature on the droid. Someone even went so far as to call it a "selling point" on the iPhone. six and one half dozen people.

    multi touch

    Any one try xscope? It claims to be a browser that supports multi touch (pinch zoom) functions, however it is $2.99. Curious if it really works.

    Just tried it, works.

    But it's a really sluggish browser, and the way pinch and zoom is in it is a bit sluggish too in my books too, zooms out way too far out. It zooms too much and it doesn't fix that until you go to move.

    Don't think it's worth the $3, seems like a beta really.

    The only way I'll switch browsers is if the mobile mozilla browser that is coming out soon supports muilti-touch.

    Wow I do like the action on the Dolphin Browser. Although its a bit too sensitive, and I'm not a fan of the continual zooming after I let go of the screen. But I like it more than stock browser

    Well it is a Apple thing since Apple holds patents on the pinch thing. Palm used it because there survival was at stake and they would deal with the lawsuit later if they got one from Apple. Google, Motorola and Verizon are much bigger targets.

    Does this replace the standard browser or is it a separate application? Does it remember logins and passwords?

    yawn. There is no indication that there is an existing patent on this. None.

    Once you set it as your default browser it will replace your stock browser.

    two other apps have it... the phonemypc app does and the same company has a gallery viewer called imagine multi-touch that does. So there you go. Plus, the Softwareforme.com guy (people who make those two apps) says he knows a company which is preparing a pinch ad zoom browser... and then I just heard that the Dolphin browser just announced pinch and zoom. It'll happen soon across the board.

    Wow!

    It's terrific! I'm very happy that this is out - true pinch and zoom.

    Multi-Touch here we come.

    This forum is great.:icon_ banana:
