Smooth Scroll is a must for all iTouch and iPhone fans – it attempts to replicate the ‘smooth’ movement of a webpage when scrolling down it (similar to the way yo ucan interact with these devices when browsing the internet).
It is difficult to describe the function of the Smooth Scroll Chrome extension without seeing it in action, and it’s also hard to say what its real utility is (other than making your browser a little bit more ‘smooth’!). It has a lot of different options available to experiment with, including Frames per Second, pulse algorithm settings and experimental keyboard support – so have some fun!
After installation, when you smooth scroll (for example on a tablet) you can really notice the difference in terms of a less jerky performance, but otherwise it’s slightly difficult to recognize. One small issue which has not been added is the ‘scroll wheel’ on the mouse is not affected by the smooth scrolling ability, so you’ll still find yourself jerking around if you use the mouse.
It is, whatever its faults, another good experimental plugin and it is another project which is showing everyone the future of extensions is bright! Check out the developer’s website today and download the .crx file!
