The Global search engine giant Google is now moving forward to improve its scrolling performance in its Chrome browser by introducing support for Pointer Events, a standard that supports both mouse and touch navigation at the same time.
The Pointer Events API combines all of the touch, mouse, and stylus interactions with a browser into a single set of programmable events which is available since IE 10.
Google is set on refining the scrolling options on Chrome and will make it better with the help of IE's technology.
Majority of the world's population using Android devices use Google Chrome as their default browser. The browser is also popular amongst desktop users. Here are a few tricks that'll make browsing a lot more fun and interesting for you.
