Turning the World-Wide-Web Upside Down

OK, I admit this is a silly joke (WWW upside down is MMM, yawn) and that it has very little to do with my post, but I like to add some humour into my blog. Not happy? Whatever.

Recently I upgraded my MacBook Pro to Lion, and amongst other things, Apple turned the default scroll direction completely upside down. Dragging up on the touchpad (or mouse) moves the page contents up, just as it does on an iPad. Previously the scroll direction followed the scroll bar, which moves in an opposite direction to the content. Since I’m a heavy user of a tablet, I found it quite nice and kept the setting. However, now I’m completely screwed at work, because I’m always scrolling pages in the wrong direction now. Bah!
