Grab and Drag: scroll in Firefox like an iPhone wielder

grab and drag in firefox
Grab and Drag is a Firefox extension that can turn your mouse icon into a little hand, enabling you to scroll up, down, and side-to-side much like you would with the little hand in Adobe Reader.

In the end, it makes Firefox scroll like the iPhone browser, even allowing for one-time flicks that can send the page conveniently scrolling with momentum in any direction. Best of all, Grab and Drag is free, so if you're curious, give it a go.

Overall, we're pretty pleased with it, but it's not perfect. Grab and Drag really messes with Blogsmith, our blogging platform, so getting the first half of this post together was really funky until we shut it off. We're sure the program would mess with other advanced web sites too, but it can be conveniently turned off via the hand icon in the toolbar if necessary.
