Apart from specific question pages, I find myself frequently using a handful of links on the Stack Exchange sites:
- User Profile
- Hot questions (all Stack Overflow)
But these links are not always easy to get to when using a tablet. You have to scroll to the top of the page, and if you've scrolled too deep this can be a mini-chore. Even worse, some of these links are buried, requiring the user to go through an intermediary page.
Is there some way for the experience to be improved for tablet users? Is it possible to make these links accessible, even when you are scrolled deep into the page? This might even improve the interface for those with a keyboard and mouse since it would save them from spinning the scroll wheel or hitting the home button every time.
This post is simply to expose the problem, but I leave the solution open to the community.
