When using Safari from iPhone/iPad I can scroll back to the top of the page in one touch by touching the upper bar of the device. Is there any similar trick for scrolling to the bottom of the page? Is there any way of scrolling down fast?

There is no keypress or gesture to do this unfortunately.

But here is a quick way to achieve a similar thing.

  1. Create a new bookmark in safari (of any web page)
  2. Edit this bookmark (press edit in bookmark screen)
  3. Rename the bookmark to End
  4. In the address field cut and paste this text

    javascript:scroll(0,document.getElementsByTagName( 'body')%5B0%5D.scrollHeight);

Once you save this bookmark, you will be able to hit the bookmark button, select End and it will take you to the bottom of the web page. I know it's not as simple as the current scroll to top feature (this solution requires two taps), but its really the only option at the moment.

There is a bookmarks bar like on the Mac in newer versions of iOS for iPad, so that would be one tap. – waiwai933 Apr 21 '11 at 6:34
@waiwai933 good point :) – RobZolkos Apr 21 '11 at 7:14
Why or why is there no way to "quick-scroll" ? – Pacerier Jan 30 '12 at 12:28

If you are willing to jailbreak, the application Action Menu has a Scroll feature which can scroll both to the top and bottom.
