I want to have words with any UI designer who has decided scroll bars need to be only 5 pixels wide. Tired of having to have 360 no-scope accuracy to grab a scroll bar with the mouse.

@CarlCravens The only explanation I have found is that apparently no one needs scoll bars except as position indicators, as everyone in the world either has a touch screen or multitouch touch pad for their scrolling needs 🙄

@galaxis I use the mouse wheel a lot, but sometimes the content is so long you just want to grab the bar.

And! Having the grabbable handle of the scroll bar (the "position indicator") nigh-invisible, a 3% difference in grey, popping in at a 10% difference in grey only when the cursor finds it. I can't count the number of times I've had to just _give up looking._
