scroll bar

I've just tried to put a scroll bar on my website I used the overflow: scroll; method and it worked but looked really ugly.

How to I achieve the scroll that treehouse have in this video:


go to the last 2 mins of the video where he tells you about scrolls. I really like the look of the scroll bar he has in this video and I was wondering how I get that look on my website.

Hi Troy,

The scroll bar seen in the video is the OS X UI scroll bar and isn't custom to that specific site, on Windows and Linux based operating systems it's far chunkier and less attractive but there are solutions out there that use JavaScript to give your site a consistent look across all operating systems.

Below is a link to a Google search which has a ton of helpful articles, plugins and example of how you can achieve an OS X look and feel.
