jQuery slimScroll

slimScroll is a small (3.7KB) jQuery plugin that transforms any div into a scrollable area with a nice scrollbar – similar to the one Facebook and Google started using in their products recently. slimScroll doesn’t occupy any visual space as it only appears on a user initiated mouse-over. User can drag the scrollbar or use mouse-wheel to change the scroll value.



jScrollPane is a cross-browser jQuery plugin by Kelvin Luck which converts a browser’s default scrollbars (on elements with a relevant overflow property) into an HTML structure which can be easily skinned with CSS.


Vertical scrollbar using jQuery UI slider

Vertical scrollbar using jQuery UI Slider – with optional mousewheel integration. Support for multiple sliders.


iScroll 5

iScroll was born in 2008 to fill the lack of native scrolling in the mobile webkit (at the time iPhone only) browser. Time has passed, mobile browsers are getting better and a javascript scroller is becoming less relevant. That’s the reason why iScroll is not just a scroller for mobile anymore but a cross browser solution to interact with DOM elements. It now supports not only touch events but also pointers, key presses, remote controls and of course the good old mouse.
