    I just tried installing the Milestone browser (from ROM dump) to try to get the pinch zoom on Droid, fail. If someone could properly mod it though......

    Heres hoping that Opera Mobile 10 will have support for multi-touch.

    I switched to the dolphin browser few days ago just for the multitouch, plus it has custom gestures and tabbed windows, plus can change theme. Is there a better brower put there?

    I read that verizon and google opt out of advertising multitouch and default browser multitouch actions like pinch & zoom, to save any law suites from apple and at&t. But having third party software that unleashes certain multitouch functions gives verizon google an awesome phone with a fav functionality with avoidance of lawsuite. Makes sense, just will take a while before its wide spread to general public

    I'd really like being able to have multi-touch on the navigation system.

    Wonder if we can modify the APK or something for that.

    Just wanted to add.. The BEST pinch and zoom i've seen on the Droid is with PhoneMyPc, an app to control your computer's desktop remotely...

    Ridiculously smooth!

    If you go to the market and search dolphin, download the dolphin browser. Its has pinch to zoom and you can download youtube videos with it

    pinch And zoom

    I though I remember reading about it somewhere. Dolphin's great. I think it's a little faster than the pre-loaded browser as well.
