Use your Mouse or Stylus to grab and pan web pages

User Guide: - Refresh tab after installing to activate the extension. - Default For Windows: Press and drag Right Mouse to pan. - Default For Ubuntu: Press and drag Middle Mouse to pan. - Default For Mac: Press and Hold Ctrl and move pointer to pan. - For Stylus users, it's recommended to setup one of the buttons on your stylus to be Ctrl Key and use that button to activate panning. - See Options page for more details. (After installation, Right Click on this extension's icon, then click Options). - To quickly turn extension On/Off, pin the extension icon, then clicking on the icon will switch it on/off. - This extension works best with mouses, stylus drawing tablets, laptop touchpad (only in case it doesn't provide convenient panning by gesture). Change Log: 1.9.0 - 21/04/2021 - Fix initialization bug on Mac. - Remove cursor styling. - Update option text. 1.5.0 - 18/04/2021 - Update option UI. - Update default behaviour for different operating systems. - Remove unnecessary permission request and republished. 1.4.0 - 18/10/2017 - Fix issue with Chrome 61+. - Fix extension's auto reload mechanism when extension update. *Since emitting custom Wheel Event no longer has any effect on scrolling, the extension now falls back to update element.scrollTop & scrollLeft directly, which might cause layout issues with certain websites while scrolling. *As you might have noticed, this extension also no longer works with chrome's pdf reader. After an update some time ago, Chrome's pdf readers has started to run within a hidden internal extension window and there seems to be no way for other extension to manipulate scroll position of that window. Features - Natural Sliding and Frictions. - Option page to change and preview settings. - Settings syncs across tabs. - Turn On and Off easily by clicking on Extension Icon. Hand Tool for Google Chrome makes scrolling any webpage similar to: - Pdf Readers - Photoshop Hand Tool - Google Map Panning Hand - Scrolling a smart phone... - Grab-and-Drag extension on Firefox
