Toggle scrollbar-click behavior System
dunno if somebody else has pointed this one out already:

in the general controls panel one can specify how clicks in the scrollbar are handled: old-style mac os-way (scroll one page) or next-style (scroll to that position).

whatever you choose: holding the option-key (alt) while clicking toggles the behavior. :)

comes in handy on long web-pages...

clicking on a scroll-arrow while holding the option-key (alt), makes the contents scroll up/down one page.
moving the scroll-*thumb* while holding alt, lets you scroll the window-contents VERY smoothly: 1 pixel-wise, as opposed to the 4 to 5 pixel it normally "jumps".
