    I'd gone to IE9 on my EP121 because the touch worked so much better on it. But I tried Chrome again today after many weeks, and it seems to be much improved. Which is great, 'cause I do strongly prefer Chrome over IE. Anyone else notice this?

    It always worked Pretty good for me!
    there is one annoying thing about CHROME when using flicks gestures: if i use flicks to copy or pAste or to back/ forward they seem to work twice. i mean like if i did the gesture two times instead of just once.

    I like Chrome, too, however the pinch and finger gestures that Firefox 6 has are sick. Touch has always been good in FF, but FF 6 beta is showing some special promise.

    assign flick functions manually, for example, instead of using default "back" use alt + forward arrow Instead

    tippopper is or nice option as well

    I installed FF Beta 6, but there is no pinch-zoom. How do you enable it? Thanks!

    Oh, it's just for Macs? I thought I saw it being used on the EP121?

    Why are you guys going for chrome? To me, that browser sucks when it comes to touch.

    It isn't just for macs, just the author of that document only believes that macs exist.
    It is OS independent.
    I think that CF77 did a better explanation somewhere, but the eHow is good enough

    Did you try it w/the touch plugin??

    IMO is far more smoother than IE9 o even FF6. I normally have the chrome touch plugin in "FULL mode" and whenever i want to select some text i tap the icon (that deactivates the FULL touch) and select what i want.

    I use the speeddial2 plugin too.

    The only thing that is lacking is the ability to popup the little keyboard when you tap to write (it only works in the address bar).

    I hope it gets better in future versions!

    PS: as coldpenguin explained, the "ehowto" guide is labeled for mac users but it's the same for the EP121.
