Widen + Improve Scroll Bar in Chrome
Provide a template so the scroll bar within each column is a little bit wider and easier to use if you have physical challenges. My hands have a tremor so it can take me twice as long to scroll even having adjusted my computer's sensitivity. Changing the number of columns doesn't help. I'd imagine it might help with low vision, too, but I simply need wider scroll bars so I can read my feeds more easily. Thank you.
The scroll bars of the web application in Chrome are difficult to use. They are narrow (another comment concerns this) which causes some useability issues. The contrast is terrible especially when hovering over the scroll bar. It is impossible to see where the scroll position is. This is especially pronounced in the Magnum theme. I know they look pretty, but they need to be improved on. I much prefer the standard scroll bars I get when I use HootSuite in Firefox.
Thank you for your feedback on this! We’ll look into this for future releases. Have you tried using the up and down arrow keys to scroll through columns?

No physical impairments, but still find the scroll bar too narrow. I don't want to spend that much time getting it in just the right spot.

I have this same issue. I'm visually impaired and though I've enlarged the screen the scroll bars are annoyingly narrow. And they only appear if I scroll over them, and that's tough too. Thanks for reading.
This narrow scrool bar is giving me ergonomic challenges as well, to say the least. It is the number one thing to fix in my book. It creates 'mouse arm' and it actually a huge problem as a daily user!

yes, that is helpful. but the best use of Hootsuite is being able to move back and forth across columns to find what I need from various lists ... so its only a solution for simply reading one feed
