    Certain websites I visit require a lot on scrolling down to get to where I what I want to look at.
    Shortly after I rec'd my ipad2 and while on phone with Apple Tech Support, I asked,
    "Is there way to get back to the top of the page without having to swipe 5-6 times?
    I was told, NO.
    While on a BBQ Forum, (BBQ-Brethren) I was told that if I tap on the very top, up by the time, it would take me all the way to the top of the page. IT WORKS! :)

    Yep. It's a handy trick. The feature is newish. I don't remember if it was introduced with iOS 6 or 7, so it's possible it did not exist when you asked the tech guy.

    I'm almost certain that was introduced with iOS6. Very useful.
