Google Back when I reviewed the Nexus 7, I mentioned that I was disappointed with Chrome for Android. It often felt slow, would hang, and typing in the address bar and input fields on webpages would lag. Scrolling wasn't always optimal, and sometimes, it would simply freeze up altogether. We're several months down the line now - has the situation improved for me?

Firefox's crappy scrolling

Is it me or is Firefox scrolling on not mobile optimized web site a total failure? I mean, when I scroll vertically on a regular website, as my movement is not perfectly vertical (damn you, stupid human user), it scrolls vertically and horizontally, for a mainly vertical movement. It's so damn annoying when you read text to have to correct manually a thing as simple as scrolling that I always revert to android core browser or chrome.
I can forgive sluggishness, but failing vertical scrolling, for real, how could I cope with that?
BTW, I have had the exact same issue with Opera and firefox, on my 3 android phones and on my 2 android tablets. Only the android browser and Chrome do not fail to scroll in a perfect vertical way
