Scrolling down while webpage loading and nothing happens.

    So when I go to a website on my browser, sometimes the page will load 95% (and I can see all the content), so I will start scrolling. However, presumably because there are a few page elements not fully loaded, when I scroll down, nothing happens.

    So I end up swiping my fingers down multiple times until, finally, it starts to scroll.

    Would be smarter if the Mac let me swipe once, then scroll down automatically once the page was ready.

    Any fixes for this?

    I use Chrome, btw.

    How does the browser predict you wanto go to the bottom?

    How does the browser knows what speed you want to scroll down?

    How does the browser knows you are not reading page 1, therefore it should not automatically scroll until u finish reading?

    What I mean is this:

    Let's say you go to They have a header/banner at the top of the page, so I want to scroll down a few lines to get to the first post.

    If the page has already loaded, then I swipe my fingers an inch or so, and it does that.

    If the page is only 95% loaded, I do the same swipe and nothing happens.

    The Mac should be smart enough to let me swipe once, then activate that swipe automatically once the page loads, rather than have me swiping fruitlessly until the page finally loads.

    The browser doesn't have to "know what speed I want to scroll down" or anything else. It should do the exact same thing as it would do if the page was fully loaded: scroll down a few lines when the user does a two finger swipe.
