comment Is confirmation on checkout still relevant?

scrollbar move reversely - is that the same as the preference in OSX to change the scrolling direction (basically scroll wheels and touch pad gestures want to go different ways) One major point of the scroll bas is you can control by dragging - it is what was designed for)
