Scroll webpages in Camino via the mouse Web Browsers
I just randomly discovered that you can hold down Command and Option, then click and drag to move the webpage up and down in Camino.

Scroll webpages in Camino via the mouse
Authored by: neuralstatic on Jun 02, '04 01:21:32PM

i don't use camino anymore, since firefox came out... i'm not sure if it's the same, or if i'm missing something

but for any browser, it works even if i don't hold down option and command. it's as if you're scrolling through to make a selection end point.

No, it's a feature of Camino. Holding Cmd and Opt changes the cursor to a hand, and then you can drag the page around in any direction. I tried Firefox, but couldn't stand it's lack of Mac OS X interface (meaning, I like to be able to Cmd-M to minimize windows). That and I couldn't middle click to open tabs.

Just FYI: Internet Explorer has the some feature, it was one of the features I really missed from IE (among auto-completion in form fields, which is still a missing feature in Camino).

In Internet Explorer there is a similar feature achieved by holding down the Command key and then click and hold the mouse. The cursor changes to a Hand at which point you can drag the content of the window up and down and side to side. The scroll bars don't move until you release the mouse button.
I love this feature and I wish it was available in Safari.

That's neat. Doubt I'll use it, but it's a nice feature for those without a scroll mouse.

Incidentally, for those that gave up on Camino due to the display problems under Panther, it's time for another look--10.3.4 fixes the floating text bug, and the new beta of 0.8 fixes the white blotch with some background images (or some Japanese text) bug.

After nearly giving up on Camino and jumping ship completely to Safari, it's back in business and running better than ever. Now if they'd just add auto complete!

Saft and Safari

You can do the same thing in Safari if you install Saft.
