Reverse Horizontal Scrolling in Mac OS X
Reverse scrolling, better known as ‘natural scrolling’ for OS X Lion users, is when the content on screen follows your finger movements, just like iOS. This is activated by default for vertical scrolling, but what about horizontal?
Oddly enough, scrolling left and right maintains the old style scrolling behavior, moving the content away from your fingers instead, but with a free utility called Scroll Reverser we can change this.
We’ve discussed Scroll Reverser in the past as a way to get natural scrolling in Mac OS X 10.6 but the app has since been updated to include more specific scroll customizations, including options to set custom scrolling behavior independently for trackpad, mouse, and a tablet screen, in addition to vertical scrolling and the aforementioned horizontal scrolling.
The app works in Mac OS X 10.5, 10.6, and OS X 10.7, and later, and is a free download.
