    Default Two things no web browser to my knowledge has ever got right

    1. Keeping your place in pages that grow dynamically when the vertical slider approaches the bottom. Invariably the page suddenly goes haywire and one's place is completely lost. No browser I've ever used deals with this in anything like a satisfactory way, or generally at all.

    2. A vertical slider that can be reliably "grasped" by holding down the cursor. Stray off it by a hundredth of an inch on some pages and the grasp is lost. This is more and more of a problem the wider and higher resolution screens become, because the slider becomes ever narrower.

    It sounds like you are surfing for a lot of porn then trying to use a slider to zoom in?

    Try a magic mouse, so you scroll with your finger on the top of the mouse, not by moving side bars.

    Switch to RiscOS, it does both those for all windows (not just browsers)
