    Why does scrolling in Safari suck? How long has it been like this?

    If you're not sure open up Chrome and compare. Safari is.... sticky? It's terrible.

    Your description of how scrolling is pretty vague. I have no problems with scrolling on my 2013 11" MacBook Air. It's absolutely smooth.

    Edit: I see this is an iOS 9 thread. Still I don't notice any scrolling issues on my 6S+.

    Scrolling on my MacBook Pro, iPhone 5 and 5s is very smooth.

    What is the issue with scrolling on Safari? Are you referring to the speed on an iphone vs. the speed of scrolling on an ipad? If so, it's been like that for a while now, at least starting in IOS 8.

    Sounds like the following threads should address it all:

    Thanks officer. Very helpful.

    I'll be more specific for those interested in conversation. Scrolling in Safari is smooth. It's not stuttering or anything like that.

    My issue is the way it slows and stops. It's very abrupt compared to Chrome, where you scroll and it slowly glides to a stop. Just seems like a much more refined experience, IMO.

    In before "Just use Chrome then!!". Safari is better in every single way that matters to me.

    I guess providing relevant information is somehow bad now? And here I thought information was being sought, I guess not.

    No problem here on the latest beta, I was on 9.0 Jailbroken for a few months and had this problem and various other bugs that caused me to update.

    I believe the OP is talking about the weight (inertia/momentum) of the scrolling.

    Sorry. Maybe I was a bit harsh. I was looking for a discussion rather than old posts.

    See my quote below.

    This. Thank you.

    Well, quite a few of them aren't exactly old and provide a fair bit amount of information that might or might not come up in the discussion here, thus the linking to provide existing thoughts about it all.
