One feature that I love on the iPhone’s version of Safari is tapping the top status bar to quickly scroll a web page back to the top. Great little timesaver. My question is: what hasn’t Apple done this with the desktop version of Safari? Perhaps a double-click of the current tab? Double-clicking the title bar minimizes the window, so that action is out. How about a contextual menu item, “Scroll to top”? If the new multitouch trackpad on the MacBook Air is extended to the rest of the MacBook family, then perhaps a custom gesture could be used. Although it would need to be something that could be accomplished ideally from the trackpad, a mouse or even the keyboard.

Update: Doh. Pressing the Home key does this. It’d still be cooler to have a mouse action or a gesture to perform the scroll-to-top function.
