One Off Thought - Back to Top

I don't think I have ever actually used the "back to top" link on a web page.  Has anyone ever actually used one of those?  I generally ignore them because I have a firmly placed habit of scrolling up when I want to go to the top, not looking around for a link.

  I think these are a vestige of the old wild west web days when people called them "anchor tags" and tried to link up everything on their pages.  And yes, I realize they are still technically "anchor tags", but nobody calls them that anymore.  Even developers will call it a link while typing out the "<a href='...'></a>" anchor tag.
