    1. With this extension, you can customize smooth scrolling behavior. The extension is worth to use, if you are frustrated at: Step size for scrolling by the cursor keys is so short. A built-in smooth scrolling is somewhat less sensitive and laggy.

      Allows you to scroll any window or control by right clicking (RButton) and dragging the mouse. It works very similarly to the "Hand Tool" in Adobe products, such as Adobe PDF Reader.
