Hide the scrollbar in webkit


Web tricks

Today I decided to improve the looks of Grooveshark, as I run it in a Chrome app window, and I wanted it to sort of melt into the rest of the window decorations. I thought maybe removing the scrollbar from the left sidebar would look good, but how? overflow:hidden hides the scrollbar, but also disables scrolling.

Luckily we have Google, and I found out you can style scrollbars in Chrome with

#element::-webkit-scrollbar { /* css here */ }

So the solution was fairly simple:

#element::-webkit-scrollbar { width: 0 !important }

Scrolling still works, and it looks much better. That said, be careful if using this for others to see. It’s likely that you’ll confuse your visitors when they see no scrollbars!
