Smooth Scrolling Comes to Google Chrome in Chrome 19
By on February 19th, 2012

has seen tremendous growth since it was released 2 years ago. It has competed with browsers like and Internet Explorer by adding new features which have drawn users towards it. However, one of the most requested feature that has been missing in Google Chrome has been smooth scrolling.

Smooth Scrolling allows users to browse webpages in a single flow without continuous jumps in the display. The lack of this feature made scrolling in Chrome a bad experience if not worse. However, the wait for Smooth Scrolling might be over in a few months because Google has now included the Smooth Scrolling feature in the development version of Google Chrome (v19.0.1041.0 dev-m).

With the introduction of this feature, scrolling in Chrome has become less jumpy and maintains a single flow when you are scrolling from top to bottom or vice versa. The feature might be rolled out with the stable version of Google Chrome in near future, so you might have to wait a month or two before you can start using it.

If you are using the dev version, you will have to enable the Smooth Scroll feature in about:flags before you can use it. Head over to about:flags and enable "Smooth Scrolling". This feature is available for Windows, Linux and Chrome OS only so Mac OS X users won’t be able to use it yet.
