It’s a little under a week since OS X Lion suddenly leaped onto our Macs and sunk its teeth into Snow Leopard. Thankfully the transition wasn’t as messy as say, oh, I dunno,…. a real Lion attacking a Snow Leopard.
Lion’s arrival brought it with nearly 250 enhancements. One of those enhancements is the controversial reverse scroll. Reverse scrolling has spun the world on its head, literally. The world we now live in is a topsy turby one where scrolling up brings you up (kinda) and down brings you down (also kinda).
Wait… is that right? Should I say scrolling up brings you down, and down brings you… aaarrgh! Either way, things are different now that Lion is in charge.
What do you make of Apple trying to switch the mouse experience in OS X? Vote below and have your say.
Ed – looks like the poll isn’t properly working in Safari and Chrome. If you click on an answer and click Vote – your vote will be cast.
If you’re not happy with the reverse scroll in Lion; it’s easy to switch back. Simply visit your System Preferences and enter either your Mouse or Trackpad settings and untick the setting.
