Improve Page Scrolling in Chrome with Chromium Wheel Smooth Scroller

When you scroll a web page in Google Chrome web browser using your mouse wheel, the page scrolling is not that smooth unless you are using a software provided by your mouse manufacturer. For example, Logitech mice come with Logitech SetPoint that also installs extensions for various web browsers and makes scrolling of web pages smoother.

However, if your mouse manufacturer does not provide any software or you do not want to use that software, then you can use Chromium Wheel Smooth Scroller extension in Chrome browser. This extension brings many features to improve the page scrolling in Chrome. You can toggle on or off this extension by clicking on its icon in the Chrome toolbar.
