Chrome Now Uses Scroll Anchoring To Prevent Those Annoying Page Jumps

Google has updated its Chrome browser to fix the annoying page jumps that occur when pages are loading. While developers want pages to load the actual content of a page before additional ads and images appear, “the problem is that if you’ve already scrolled down, your page resets when some off-screen ad loads and you’re suddenly looking at a completely different part of the page,” reports TechCrunch. From the report: The latest versions of Chrome (56+) do their best to prevent these jumps with the help of a feature called scroll anchoring. Google tested scroll anchoring in the Chrome beta versions for the last year and now it’s on by default. Google says the feature currently prevents almost three jumps per page view — and, over time, that number will likely increase.
