Scroll iPhone web pages up and down via double-tap iOS devices
I looked through the manual, but didn't see this documented. We all know that you can scroll a web page on the iPhone by dragging, and you can zoom in/out by double-tapping. What I discovered is that if you first double-tap on a column (like those found on many news pages or standard web pages), the screen will zoom in to fit the whole column (that part, most people probably already know). From that point, though, you can double-tap in the lower ¼ of the screen to scroll down a nice amount for reading. Double-tapping in the upper ¼ of the screen will scroll up.

I find that when reading some pages, it's easier to scroll in this manner, because if I try to drag-scroll, I inevitably end up dragging the column left or right, and messing up my margins. This does take a little bit of experimentation to get right, but it's definitely faster once you've gotten the hang of it.
