Reflections

This website is a great representation of another lesson myself and many other developers may learn at one point or another: don’t mess with the browser’s native scrolling, regardless of how ‘cool’ it looks or feels. The result is usually a ‘re-invented wheel’ custom solution that’s prone to bugs and terrible usability, especially on touch-based devices. I can tell you from personal experience that they aren’t very fun to maintain either.

Your account manager may think a website looks dazzling if it behaves like a PowerPoint presentation, but you’ll be saving yourself (and everyone else) a lot of headaches by avoiding any kind of site like this.
