There Must Be Fifty Ways To Scroll Your Window

Recently, I had to test an animation in a Web browser that occurred when the user scrolled down the Web page, so I had to figure out as many ways to scroll the viewable area of the page to ensure the animation worked with each.

With apologies to Paul Simon, there must be fifty ways to scroll your window. Here are a few:

Press the down arrow, Barrow.
Press the arrow up, Hup.
Page up and page down, clown.
And move the view around.

You can push Home, Gome.
Roll the mouse wheel, Lucille.
Press the End key, Lee.
And it moves magic’ly.

Mobile tap and drag, Dag.
Tap and give it a flick, Rick.

Tap on the SPACE, Ace.
Make sure it’s in its place.

Click the mouse wheel and get the scroll icon, Ryan.
Keep hitting Tab, Gab.
Slide the vertical bar, Dar.
Maybe we’re carrying the joke on too far.

At any rate, keep in mind these dozen ways to scroll the view if you’ve got JavaScript animation to account for.

Also, thanks to @mrpjones and @kinofrost on Twitter; they get co-songwriting credits and will get to share the royalties when this baby charts.
