The Aero Scrollbar in Teachers' Chrome

hey guys,

Just interested to know how to get the scrollbar in my Chrome looks like the one which displayed on Teachers' Chrome in the video.

I have noticed that the aero scrollbar appears while scrolling through the page, and it disappears when cursor stay on the viewport. It is so nice!!

I am searching for it but could not find any chrome extension which achieve the same effect.

Marco, are you on a PC or a Mac? This is a feature introduced in Mac OS X Lion, I'm not sure of a way to duplicate it to Windows though.

Hi Greg,

I am using Max OS X version 10.6.8 and wonder if there is a way to achieve the same effect? thanks.

I don't know of anyway to get this on 10.6.8. I do believe you would have to upgrade to 10.7 or right up to 10.8 to get this effect. It's a system wide effect for Lion and Mountain Lion.
