    Thanks for confirming ;)I usually am… :yes:

    confirmed :)that was fast lol, great work :yes:

  3. I was wondering. If Opera is using 100% of the CPU's Core, is it possible for Modern Scroll to still work smoothly? Usually if Opera is maxed out (and that happens a lot), all things slow to a crawl for a few seconds.

  4. christoph142 said:

    Depends.modern scroll will use as much CPU power during scrolling as it can possibly get to smooth things.So there are two cases:If Opera is already maxed out, there's nothing left to work with and it's gonna be jerky (like everything else in Opera).If Opera isn't, modern scroll will probably max it out but that will make it as smooth as possible. ๐Ÿ’ก

  5. HuRRaCaNe said:

    The continuous updating of the scrollbar position (as you mentioned in the tooltip) really messes up the performance of Opera's smooth scrolling. The thing is, I want smooth scrolling, but I also want a scrollbar that is continuously updated. Can you not implement a time limit in between redraws? The scrollbar technically doesn't have to update as fast as possible. Only just enough times per second so that it looks like it's updating constantly.

  6. christoph142 said:

    That explanation only applies if you disabled the "custom functions". Otherwise, there is not a single calculation involved during scrolling anymore. Instead you see a "fake" update of the scrollbar, which is precalculated before the animation starts!The impact on performance is minimal and it should be hardly noticeable.If it is "messed up", it's either implicated by your expectations or your PC is really weak. In this case I'm sorry, but I'm an extension developer, not a magician :wizard: ๐Ÿ˜† If you disabled the "custom functions" and use Opera's default instead, you have to live with its limitations…Rest assured, that I'm constantly trying to improve performance, though!btw: it doesn't matter at all if you enable "smooth scrolling" in Opera or not if you are using the custom scrolling functions, because that setting isn't used by modern scroll.

  7. Please, anyone try to reproduce this and tell hereLink to what happens here: http://my.opera.com/christoph142/blog/2012/12/17/modern-scroll-meets-aviation#comment101253212Problem with facebook. Only when you have enabled custom scrolling with mouse… I don't wanna be alone with that problem…

  8. bug here: http://www.frombar.tv/ when you choose a game to watch, the popups have opera's scrollbars, just like the bug with flyordie.com I reported in the previous post ๐Ÿ™‚ keep up the great work :yes:

    Oh I'm sorry, I misunderstood you when you reported this issue the first time and didn't see the video until now. I thought you meant this:Thank you so much for your effort and for bringing that up again! I now fixed it in the final build :yes:Originally posted by netmain:

    the popups have opera's scrollbars

    This is exactly the same issue, which occurs to me on avm.de as well… ;)But I can't do anything about it. You have to report that to Opera!:sherlock:The best would be, if you updated the bug report that I already filed a few weeks ago (DSK-379320):up:

    Thought I'd share some screenshots of the 'background bars' from the overlay scrollbars in Sublime Text 2. They feature a subtle inner shadow style, and the colour of the bars change with the colour scheme (obviously something that's not possible with web content).I'm using my custom settings so excuse the word-wrapped code and gutter-free interface if that's your thing :p I've also cropped the chrome of the window to show only the GUI.Looking forward to the 2.1 update in the extensions catalog :coffee:. Is there any conflict between installing the github version over the Opera extensions version if you implement automatic updates of Modern Scroll?

  12. christoph142 said:

    Well, in some cases people ended up with two installations working (or better hindering each other) in parallel. But those are rare phenomena.However, you do not get updates automatically out of the extension catalog with the github version.

    I found that upgrading to 2.1 from the Opera catalog, while having the github 2.0 version running, made saving custom settings not possible, even after uninstalling v2.0. The 'info' tooltips also don't seem to appear on hover.Restarted Opera, but saving and tooltips still not working. Not a huge issue as MS still functions well but I just thought I'd let you know.Another quirk I noticed is that pressing the Enter/Return key when typing in a name for the configuration creates a new line which can't be backspaced up again. Unsure if this affects the name when saving as I can't test it currently. I was trying the Enter key to see if I could save a configuration that way.

    Confirmed on win8
