Anyway, thanks for the references. Very interesting and it leads to further questioning.

Another thing to keep in mind: on iOS (and Android as far as I know), it's not possible to interact with the scroll bars, they're only visual indicator of the current position on the page and the total page height. I just realized that because most people are right-handed, they have their fingers over the scroll bar while scrolling... losing these visual clues.

I also think it's more a question of where the user expects the scrollbar to be. As it's always on the right, then it should stay here. But I'm curious to see what the actual reaction of a user would be, so I'm going to have some user tests and gather feedback.
