Out of curiosity, has anyone thought of a solid way to test website prototypes with users? I've been using the ViewController module, and I modified it so that the links become the active link mouse cursor so I can quickly build prototypes. But I've been having trouble with users wanting to press the back button on the native browser to go back. Not quite sure how to approach that problem.
