For a compact metric space X let G = H(X) denote the group of self homeomorphisms with the topology of uniform convergence. The group G acts on itself by conjugation and we say that X satisfies the topological Rohlin property if this action has dense orbits. We show that the Hilbert cube, the Cantor set and, with a slight modification, also even dimensional spheres, satisfy this property. We also show that zero entropy is generic for homeomorphisms of the Cantor set, whereas it is infinite entropy which is generic for homeomorphisms of cubes of dimension d ≥ 2 and the Hilbert cube.
