    Free for me. And you. And every other person in the world should they choose so.

    It may be true but it doesn't add anything to the discussion so I decide to troll back. You could say his sarcastic comment to so many things on Linux.

    I just don't tolerate anyone not appreciating a free and amazing OS like GNU/Linux. That's all. Not trying to troll.

    By default you do not get true smooth scrolling on touchpads like you would find on Windows or Mac. Or even Chromium on Linux. It can be enabled by putting "export MOZ_USE_XINPUT2=1" in your ".bash_profile" and then turning off the false "smooth scrolling" option, but that is not exactly a user-friendly way of correcting the problem.

    Well it's true
    Partial support existed in 2017-2019. Dolphin supported it, but the browser didn't
    GTK also partially supported it

    On Windows the support is not perfect either though. I had to bypass the Boot Camp driver to get smooth scrolling with the touchpad.

    I had to upgrade to kernel 5.13 as some 5.10 revision completely broke the mousewheel for my Logitech mouse. I can't fathom why this is a constant source of problems in literally every component involved

    ...in Chromium browsers. I hate it too. Luckily, Firefox scrolls just fine.

    I love those quality-of-life improvements. They really make a difference.
