Opera Reader System Test Does Away With Scroll Bar For 'Pages' [pcpro.co.uk]

Opera has unveiled a new Reader system that ditches scrolling on websites in favour of flippable pages.

The Norwegian browser maker is looking to remove the side scroll bar for documents or articles in favour of "pages" of a set-size, similar
It's achieved with as little as a few lines of CSS, using the "overflow" tag or a new version of the "float" function; there are more complicated coding methods for developers looking for greater control.

Displaying set pages rather than scrolling has been done before, notably in web apps developed by The New York Times, but it used JavaScript rather than CSS.

Idle query: Do they have reason to believe that the user wants this feature?

Yes, if you're tablet-based scrolling is more difficult than flipping a 'page.'
