Chrome used to offer a flag that let you enable smooth scrolling, but Google appears to have discontinued it. You can now use the Chromium Wheel Smooth Scrolling add-on to achieve this.


Firefox users can use the Yet another Smooth Scrolling extension. It makes the mouse scrolling experience smoother and also supports keyboard scrolling. It even lets you customize your smooth scrolling behavior, in terms of step size, smoothness and acceleration sensitivity.


Opera also, like Chrome, offered a flag that let you enable smooth scrolling. But I could not find it now – I guess they too must have discontinued it. Classic Scroll add-on will offer you a smooth scrolling experience. The Modern Scroll add-on will let you customize your scrolling experience.
