Zip to the top of a web pageYou just finished scrolling down a lengthy New York Times story on the iPhone, and you want to go back to the beginning to see the photo again—but you’re dreading the prospect of having to flick, flick, and flick all the way back to the top of the page.

Well, try this: Just double-tap the status bar at the very top of the iPhone display, right where the reception bars, the clock, and the battery life indicator sit.

Zip! The iPhone’s mobile Safari browser will send the page flying back to the beginning, in no time flat.

Bonus tip

A single-tap on the status bar in Safari will expand the browser’s address bar, allowing you to edit the URL or paste in a new one.
