    Hey guys. I got my iBook in the mail today, and started using it for web browsing. Its great, working alot faster than I expected, considering how alot of people talk about about power pc's.

    Well anyways, I do alot of scrolling on webpages, and for me, its annoying to go to the scroll arrows every time. I remember somebody on this forum mentioning a download where it changes the sides of the trackpad to a scrolling area.

    Does anybody know what this is called, or does anybody have any other way to scroll easier with an iBook G3 trackpad?

    Thanks:apple:

    There's no easy way to scroll on an iBook G3. Maybe the arrow keys?

    Sidetrack is a great app, but you cant buy it anymore, so after a month it turns into nagware.

    This is what I get every time I wake up my Powerbook. I would buy it if I could, but it isn't supported anymore.Do you have the link where you downloaded yours?

    no, I don't because I downloaded it a while back, and I couldn't ever find the page again. I have the Disk Image that I originally downloaded, though, if you want that. I am not sure why it still works (I never hacked it or anything)

    Other than sidetrack, I don't know of another app!
