    Not sure if this has been talked about a bunch but I have noticed that the scrolling is very jerky in Chrome but in Safari its smooth. Btw both are updated to the current version. Could anyone else chime in if they have seen this problem or are currently experiencing this. Thanks.

    Smooth scrolling isn't implemented in Chrome, hence the crappy scrolling. Probably won't be done for quite a while since it's not something you'd consider one of the most important features. :(

    Funnily enough, I do consider it a major feature - since I got my Magic Mouse, smooth and momentum scrolling has became indispensable to me.

    NM actually about the bookmarks. Thanks for the help on the other question thought. :)

    Smooth scrolling does make it nice on the eyes.

    I would switch to Chrome if it had smooth scrolling, but i just can't until it's implemented.

    The dev. version of chrome scrolls pretty darn smooth. I can't even notice a difference between that and safari.

    I tried Chrome/Chromium many times but always changed back to Safari because of that.

    I know this thread is a little old but have you guys tried the SmoothScroll extension in Chrome?
