Scroll Smoothly in Google Chrome with Mouse Wheel or Arrow Keys

May 2, 2010 | Filed under Browser, Google


Scrolling through pages when browsing any web site is something that a web surfer does all the time. The user can either use the scroll wheel that is on the mouse, or the arrow keys on the keyboard and finally the page up, page down, end and home keys to scroll the page. If you didn’t notice, all of the web browsers that includes Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Opera, Safari and etc doesn’t scroll smoothly by jumping through a paragraph of a few lines when you scroll once using the scroll wheel on the mouse.

Although this might not seemed to be a problem, it would be nice to have a smooth scrolling so that the pages scrolls smoother. For Google Chrome users, they can use SmoothScroll extension which automatically smooth the scrolling.

After installing SmoothScroll, there is no icon at the address bar but you can access the Options from the Extension menu. It is possible to set the frames per second, animation time in milliseconds, stride size per scroll in pixel, pulse scale, pulse normalize, and even activate the keyboard support with its own scrolling values.
