Today I'll share my fifth extension with you :up: …
It is by far the best piece of code I've been writing to date. It's structured, maintainable and highly adjustable. I'm still in the learning process of completely understanding JS, JSON, the DOM,… but I'm making progress. So I'm pretty sure, that it's gonna be a huge success (unlike Smart Clipboard ^^) and that you'll love it as much as I do :love:
What is it?
modern scroll is an up-to-date alternative to Opera's standard scrollbars (which should be disabled to avoid senseless double bars!)
What's awesome about modern scroll?
+ scrolling is sometimes faster than with Opera's standard bars!
+ its scroll bars don't take up any space so the whole screen width can be used to display what a browser is made for: websites
+ elements or whole pages don't shift by some pixels when content changes and bars become (un)necessary
+ scroll bars are usable in fullscreen mode as well
+ scroll bars automatically hide when they are not needed
+ unique "superbar" which makes it possible to scroll horizontally and vertically at the same time
+ optional buttons for scrolling to the top and bottom of the page
+ behavior and appearance is fully customizable
This extension was originally planned as an update to slim scrollbar by damage92. But since it doesn't have a single line of code in common with the original extension we decided to publish it as a new one. Slim scrollbar will of course continue to exist if you prefer the other implementation or if you are using Opera below 12.10 where modern scroll isn't available. Due to damage92's rare spare time it's not being actively developed at the moment, though.
So keep the feedback coming and as always: I need a hand with the localizations! 😉
Have fun with it
