Touch – Sliding webpages

One of the irks of Viona’s Dell Inspiron Duo (after destroying the disgustingly crippled Windows and upgrading the box to Ubuntu; with a few tweaks) is that scrolling a webpage doesnt work like on a touch phone. Clicking your mouse in a page and dragging doesnt slide the page down, so doing so on your screen doesnt do that either

And the Unity scroll bars are just insanely small and NOT touch friendly (pretty but quite the fail when making your OS touch friendly)

Click anywhere & drag!

& nice even on a regular PC πŸ™‚
This doesnt mean “they” shouldnt make some touch Compiz plugin or whatever but its a Good start πŸ™‚
