Not a bad article, but for the love of god can you please disable smoothscroll, or whatever you're using, to screw around with how your site scrolls?

It's totally annoying and makes me not want to visit your site.

Lol, sure. And thanks for the suggestion.

It would be helpful if you could explain why smooth scroll is annoying. I've never heard anyone say that, about any site.

I've never heard anyone say that, about any site.

Really? Wow. I used to be a web developer and everyone I worked with would not go back to a site that used smoothscroll.

Basically - it's unneeded. It adds zero to the experience and is actually quite annoying.

It scrolls way to fast and works unlike 99% of all sites on the internet.

I know how my devices scroll, and I don't even think about it, unless I hit a site that scrolls to fast, it's jarring.

Why use it?

That seems exceptionally nit-picky, but I'll take your advice.

And to try to answer your question, I doubt the average internet user (my target market) notices a scroll difference. Moreover, they might appreciate being able to get to the content they want faster. Ultimately, though, I have a million other things on my to-do list. So yeah, I missed catering to one group of nitpickers.

Sorry if I sounded like a jerk, it's just always been a pet peeve of mine : )
