Scroll bars are one of the best things in web design but there are some webpages that you wish had automated scrolling. ScrollyFox is a Firefox add-on that makes it possible. Instead of continuously clicking the scroll button, just click on the ScrollyFox icon next to your status bar and the page will scroll up or down automatically.

Click on the icon again whenever you want to stop. If you think the automated scrolling is too fast or too slow for you, right click on the icon to adjust the scrolling rate. Once ScrollyFox reaches the end of a page, it will start scrolling in the opposite direction, however, this can easily be easily turned off in preferences.

The only thing that would make ScrollyFox even better is a keyboard shortcut.

    Or you could just click the mouse wheel like I've already been doing for ages. You can even adjust the speed like ScrollyFox does by moving the mouse up/down.

    Anyways, this could come in handy for people using an oldtimer mouse without a scroll wheel, I guess.
