Quasiregularity of Hamiltonian chaos is approached using the concept of the type of a chaotic orbit, i.e., the sequence of resonances visited by the orbit. A simple method is introduced for determining the type in the case of kicked-rotor Hamiltonians. First applications of this method are given in the calculation and study of quantities characterizing ''vague tori'' within resonances, namely, survival probabilities and average dwelling times. Results concerning a newly defined disorder parameter, characterizing quasiregularity, are briefly reported.
