A few months ago I was asked if I could enhance modern scroll so you can drag-throw pages around in Opera just like on your mobile devices.
The exact same request reached me last week again.
That's why I want to give you a heads up on this topic now :up: …
There already is an awesome extension in Opera's catalog called Touch::Scroller by Akira which does exactly that.
It's coded really nice and clean and all I could do would be to copy its code into modern scroll.
But there's no need to do that since both extensions play very well together side by side.
I now got in contact with Akira and instead of putting effort into copying it, I'll contribute to the original extension :yes:
My first enhancement (besides some smaller optimizations) was to add the possibility to choose a key to temporarily switch from Touch into Mouse mode (and the other way round!).
So, by default, pressing Ctrl gives you the opportunity to select text while you're in touch mode and lets you drag-scroll the page respectively if you're in mouse mode :up:
You can get the newest version of Touch::Scroller right from the catalog now :cheers:
new: adjustable hotkey to switch modes
- press and hold for a temporary switch
- press twice to toggle modes permanently
upd: performance optimizations
