scrollability: Native scrolling for the mobile web

Perhaps even more than advanced features like GPS, camera access, contacts, and App stores, the lack of viewport-aware position:fixed is what drives many apps to be developed as a native experience.

Joe Hewitt who brought us Firebug and the Facebook iPhone app has released Scrollability, a single script with no external dependencies that allows developers to achieve near-native feeling scrolling, just by adding a few CSS classes to their markup. In just a few hours of its release, the project has over 250 watchers on GitHub.

Joe includes a simple demo for iOS devices that demonstrates super smooth scrolling as well as fixed header and footer elements.
