Anyone else hate the new Google Chrome Scroll bar?

I sure do, I can't actually see it, The scrolling bar part is a single shade of white off from the background and me being blind as a young human with very good Eyesight cannot see it.

 

Is there any possible way to make this not the way it is?

I hate the fact they keep f*cking about with chrome and yes it's hard to make out on some pages.

 

I doubt there is a way to change it as nobody seems to have hacked chrome for the original (better features) yet

Yeah, I freaking hate it. I thought I was the only one who can't see it. For example I can't see it completly right now.

I can see it quite well on my monitor but that might be the case because I'm using a CRT monitor and those usually have a better contrast ratio. The only off thing about it is that it looks like the colors should be reversed.

 

I don't really use Chrome anyway, except for checking email. I'm so used to Firefox that I don't even care if it is somewhat inferior in terms of performance. Plus it has some features that Chrome doesn't have.

 

Edit: So yeah, your monitor might suck. Try decreasing gamma correction, either from your monitor's menu or from your video card settings.

I see it just fine on my monitor as well (and I have a LCD).

However I barely use the scroll bar any more, I just scroll with the mouse wheel.

I didn't mean to imply that LCDs in general suck. I only mentioned that I had a CRT because you can distinguish between colors better on those than on a lot of LCDs. If you can't tell the difference between those colors too well it's probably either because the contrast ratio is weak (which is a hardware limitation of your monitor) or your brightness\gamma correction settings are set too high. I always set gamma correction on my LCD to 0.7 or 0.8 from the video card settings because it otherwise looks too bright and it hurts my eyes.

 

Speaking of not using the scroll bar, you can also use auto scrolling if the mouse wheel scroll is too slow. To use this you need to press the mouse wheel button once on the page you want to scroll and then move the mouse up and down. You can stop auto scrolling by pressing the mouse wheel button again.
