When it comes to web browsing on the iOS, there's nothing much that you can fault Safari with. The iOS's native browser does its job and does it well. But is it just me or does scrolling in Mobile Safari quite a bit sluggish? Scrolling down on pages can be quite cumbersome especially if the web page is very long. Now if you are like me who wants to increase the speed of page scrolling in Safari, then you will certainly love this jailbreak tweak that we are about to present to you.
The jailbreak tweak that I am referring to is called Webscrollian and it is one of the latest tweak by famed developer Chpwn. Grant Paul (@chpwn) is no stranger to the jailbreak community due to his other popular Springboard tweaks such as Infinidock, Infiniboard, Infinifolders and Gridlock. Anyway, as mentioned before Webscrollian is a great way for you to speed up the scrolling of Mobile Safari. Here's a video from iDownloadBlog that properly demonstrates the effect of this particular jailbreak tweak:
As you can see with Webscrollian installed, scrolling down or up in Mobile Safari becomes as smooth as butter which should definitely improve your web browsing experience. Webscrollian is available in Cydia for free under the BigBoss Repo.
But of course, since this is a Cydia tweak, you will need to have a jailbroken iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. If you want some help on how to jailbreak your device then refer to these following guides. If you are in iOS 4.3.3 then you can utilize these following jailbreak tools: Redsn0w, Sn0wbreeze, PwnageTool and JailbreakMe (very easy method). If you are however on the latest firmware, iOS 4.3.5 then you can use Redsn0w for tethered jailbreak. If you are under the iOS 5 betas, then you have the option of using Redsn0w or sn0wbreeze.
Webscrollian is yet another testament to the greatness and creativity of the jailbreak community. If you love surfing the web using your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, then Webscrollian is a jailbeak tweak that you shouldn't pass up.
