Mac OS X Lion was all about making the OS X operating system similar to iOS. One of the things that Apple built into scrolling in Lion, aside from the obvious reverse scrolling effect, was a bounce effect that took place whenever you reached the end of a scroll. This “feature” is available in many apps, including the popular browser Google Chrome, and makes it seem that the user is still scrolling beyond the end of a page, then “bounces” back to the end of the page. This feature may annoy a few Lion users out there, and really has no use whatsoever, so why don’t we get rid of it. How? With a quick and simple Terminal trick.
To disable the scrolling bouncing effect, type the following command into Terminal:
defaults write -g NSScrollViewRubberbanding -int 0
If you would like to re-enable the scrolling bounce effect, just type this instead:
defaults delete -g NSScrollViewRubberbanding
Each time you change this setting, you’ll have to quit and relaunch any apps that you would like to see changes in. And that’s it!
