(updated) Fix mouse wheel scrolling in macOS Sierra (10.12)

Upgrading from “Mac OS” 10.11 to “macOS” 10.12 didn’t bring a lot of visible changes, but it did bring an interface change.

My mouse’s scrollwheel seemed to not work right. Slow movements were ignored, and quicker movements caused web pages to jump too fast.

I did a Google search and found out that I wasn’t alone. macOS Sierra changed how scroll wheels function. Why? I don’t know.

“USB Overdrive” was a recommended fix. However, after using it for a few days, I started having more and more problems with other things. Drag and drop would sometimes stop working, middle-clicking would stop working, and VMware Fusion would crash even more than usual. In all cases, disabling USB Overdrive cleared the issue up. I’ve tried contacting the developer about this, but have received no response, and they continue to have the “works with 10.12” blurb on their website.

I found that the Chromium Wheel Smooth Scroller extension for Chrome improved scrolling a lot. Slight movements are no longer ignored.
I currently have its top four settings set to 20, 0, 1, 1.

Motorola is a terrible company

I am so done with Motorola. They announced today that they are abandoning a bunch of 2014 and 2015 devices already.

My Moto G LTE was only released last year, and instead of giving details on the big Android 6.0 update that is supposed to fix its SD card issues, Motorola instead says that the device will not be getting ANY updates.

The 2nd-gen Moto E, released WAY back in the year 2015 has already been abandoned.

Android Police has an article on it.

Here is Motorola’s official announcement:
