On long web pages, especially when using a high resolution (4K+) external monitor, scrolling takes a long, long time. Feels like you’re dragging the page through molasses.
I found a quick fix for this, buried in Accessibility preferences:
- Open System Preferences > Accessibility
- Scroll down to Pointer Control
- Hit Trackpad Options… and move the Scrolling speed slider to Fast.
Why this isn’t in Trackpad preferences, I don’t know. It used to be, back in 2011. I guess Apple decided the Trackpad preferences were getting too overloaded and hid them deep in Accessibility settings.
