I must admit, on a large screen moving all the way from top to bottom
of the scrollbar is a royal pain.  I wouldn't mind having easier
targets.  I remember if you clicked and held the center button/scroll
wheel on Windows you could drag the page around a bit as well, to keep
from having to go to the scrollbar.  Can't figure out how to do that
on Ubuntu, but then I'd rather not sacrifice middle-click-to-paste
