If you don't think we avid readers won't shell out just to be parolled from crudely trying to scroll our page down by one pixel-perfect screen with clumsy finger swiping -- a regrettable holdover from pre-tablet days, before screens found their sweet spot with the 10" tablet architecture -- then you don't know avid readers! The first developer who figures this out is in the bukoo, it's the achilles heel of mobile computing.
Navigation is everything and this one menu-bar button(s) -- not the sexiest, just the most fundamental
-- will be core to any tablet owner who reads articles & blogs. Remember when eInk was first introduced? It wasn't sexy, it was something much more valuable to Kindle owners: comfortable.
Have you considered that something other than a web browser may be what you're looking for? I mean, obviously you want to browse web sites, right? But you're not interacting with Web 2.0, e.g. Facebook, you're reading things. So, maybe you want a reader app?
What about something like Pocket
? Formerly known as Read it Later, you share web pages with it, and then read them later in its program, which used to cost a buck or two, but is now free. There's also Readability
, also free. Do either of these support paging? I don't know. Pocket sounds like something I'd use twice a year. I got it for free when it was a paid app, and never installed it. But it -- both of these -- sound like what you're looking for. I skimmed the features, and I'm not sure they have paging, but maybe they're worth your time to check out.
P.S.: If one of those does what you want, you can donate that $10 you were offering either to the dev of the app, or XDA.
