Ingenious Popup ScrollBar Concept

Relating back to our posts on the Dream Browser, we found a great demo of a much improved technique for scrolling windows at Thorwil’s Blog.

The concept of scrolling using scroll bars in a GUI has not altered for over a decade, and an improvement like this makes a lot of sense. It may not aesthetically be the most attractive solution right now, but as time goes by it’s highly likely this could end up in desktop software and operating systems.

It’s going to be interesting seeing how this concept develops and whether it will make it into the wider world of mainstream software.
