There is no up or down button on the touch key board or hardware on the kindle touch. Is there a way, in the experimental browser, to go up and down in a text box within a browswer. Such as, if I am sending an email or editing a blog post which is longer than the screen, can I scroll down the box. I can only seem to scroll down the page, not the area where I insert text. I cannot see a scroll bar on the side of the box like in a normal browser. Even if I did how would I use it with the touch?

The current browser's handling of text boxes is really bad. If I make the mistake of scrolling up, never again will I see the bottom of my text box. I realize that web browsing isn't this device's forte; still, there are enough good options for Android browsers that this one just holds up as well as crap on toast.

Kindle touch isn't an android device, so android apps won't do it any good.
