I see more and more themes doing this and I just don’t understand why. I mean there are some really good examples where authors trigger beautiful and snappy animations on scroll but that thing where with just one scroll you move to a lower section of the page must stop (imho). It’s obvious that most authors just test on one screen size and on a different screen size one scroll stops in the middle of nowhere. What do you think?
I’m with you on this, can’t stand it
I agree – even with the animations. Trying to quickly scroll down a page but instead I have to wait because of slow moving scroll animations.
If someone wants a smooth scroll, there are plenty of browser plugins out there to do so.

It really bothers me when i see a page where the scroll has been hijacked! I almost instantly close the page, unless i really need to read the content. I consider it pointless in all these multipurpose themes. There are however certain situations where it is fine to change the scroll behavior.
Please do not add it on every damn page.
