CSS Scrollbars

CSS Scrollbars standardizes the obsolete scrollbar color properties introduced in 2000 by Windows IE 5.5.

Basic example

In this example, we have chosen to use a thin scrollbar with a green track and purple thumb.

.scroller {
  width: 300px;
  height: 100px;
  overflow-y: scroll;
  scrollbar-color: rebeccapurple green;
  scrollbar-width: thin;


<div class="scroller">
  Veggies es bonus vobis, proinde vos postulo essum magis kohlrabi welsh onion
  daikon amaranth tatsoi tomatillo melon azuki bean garlic. Gumbo beet greens
  corn soko endive gumbo gourd. Parsley shallot courgette tatsoi pea sprouts
  fava bean collard greens dandelion okra wakame tomato. Dandelion cucumber
  earthnut pea peanut soko zucchini.




Accessibility concerns

When you customize scrollbars, consider they have enough contrast and that their hit area is large enough for people who use touch input.
