It makes complete sense once the scroll bars are hidden by default: You are now primarily scrolling the window contents, not moving the indicator on the scroll bar. Personally, it made immediate sense to me and just took a couple of weeks for the scrollbar-moving direction of scroll wheels to feel very weird and unintuitive on other OS’s. Luckily, there are (usually non-standard) tweaks for most OS’s to adjust the HID device scroll behaviour to be inverted and it would be great on Haiku as well. ...

I do have mixed feelings about so called natural or reversed scrolling. It makes complete sense once the scroll bars are hidden by default: You are now primarily scrolling the window contents, not moving the indicator on the scroll bar.

[As a personal opinion, I'm not too impressed with a lot of the trendy UI stuff. Ubuntu has a lot of the fades, and so on, and is often frustratingly unusable. In particular the scrollbars are abysmal!] Do you have the same problems with OSX's UI? If yes please explain why. P.S. again u can enable the standard scrollbars in Ubuntu. ...

To be honest those wallpapers don't change anything for me. I'd be more interested in smaller updates refining widgets or Can agree, I honestly don't think that it's ok to have a same UI for a decade and still consider only small refinements :/ sorry Anyway, keep the mockups coming. They definitely help the developers ...

I'm only for minimalism when it makes sense. By minimalism I mean no 3D bevels, extra(I mean extra) gradiends, drop shadows all those skeumorphic things. overly anti-aliased text ...

Yes, I thought about experimenting with that for vertical stacking - horizontal stacking (attaching windows by an edge) without a keyboard modifier or right-drag would be horribly distracting. Oh sorry I meant the tab stacking, like u drag one tab over another and it becomes semi transparent indicating that u can release and stack em. Currently there's a hotkey for that but I think it's quite annoying, Also would be nice to have something like stack all tabs somewhere. So ...

Hey loon, some awesome stuff you've been working on there mate. I've been thinking about the tabs, because I personally think that it's a Haiku's UX Killer feature and has a lotta potential. The only problem is that browser can't really use that, and the reason for that are Favicons(you can't get rid of those nor the close button, u can place them in in the middle right before the title but that looks ugly and cluttered) But on the the bright side tabs will work just fine with pretty much in ...
