Jerky wants to be banished scrolling from Edge browser and Google Chrome By Microsoft

As spotted by Windows Latest, Microsoft has deployed the tweak to the earliest preview builds of Edge: Canary and Dev. The move shifts composited scrollbar scrolling to the ‘impl’ thread, meaning that “even when the main thread is busy, users can continue to interact with and scroll using scrollbars.” (The compositor is split into two halves – the main thread, and the impl thread).

Microsoft is continuing to work hard on its revamped Edge browser, and has just implemented a change that will make for smoother scrolling when viewing websites and using the scrollbar.

And the further good news is that while this change is still in testing, it has also arrived in preview for the Chrome browser (as Edge is based on Chromium, the same engine as Chrome, Google’s browser will benefit from some of the changes Microsoft is making – like this one, with any luck).
