Description from extension meta

Allow you to use two finger scroll on your Mac trackpad in Google Maps.

Image from store ScrollMaps
Description from store Install ScrollMaps and you can use two-finger scroll in Google Maps™. Now works in the redesigned Google Maps™ too. It's designed for Mac trackpads but because of the simple mechanism, it should work on all trackpads, or even a Magic Mouse. To zoom in the maps, use the pinch gesture, Alt-scroll (Windows), or Cmd-scroll (Mac). Inertial Scrolling works on the Mac, and other operating systems that supports it natively. There are additional options in the options page, together with a small embedded map to try out different configurations. Happy mapping! --- If there is a bug or anything you want to fix in this extension / in Google Maps™, please create an issue at https://github.com/mauricelam/ScrollMaps To activate ScrollMaps on a site outside of the google.com domain, click on the ScrollMaps extension icon to the right of the URL bar. Auto-activate ScrollMaps on all sites you visit, you can click on the icon again and select "Auto-activate on all sites". --- What's new in 3.0.0: - Optional permissions: You can now install ScrollMaps without giving permission to all sites you visit to ScrollMaps. Sites using Google Maps API will need your permission to run, by clicking on the ScrollMaps extension icon to the right of the URL bar.

  • (2019-11-12) Daniele Ceglia: Works perfectly and sometimes even on Windows laptops.
  • (2018-09-23) Сергей Иванов: Очень классное расширение! Спасибо
  • (2017-08-17) Yoseob Yoon: I love this and Google Maps should have done this long time ago. One thing I find annoying with this extension is that if I want to move to the left, it wants to go back (because the gesture coincides with the "go back"). One solution is simply copy and paste the current url into a new tab so that there is no page that I can go back, but this should be fixed.
  • (2017-05-17) でえパパ: グーグルマップのトラックパッドのイライラ解消。二本指での移動がchromebookでもできました。
  • (2017-03-25) Janus Ng: It should be the way Google Maps work on Mac!
  • (2017-03-25) Guido H: Works great on Mac.
  • (2017-02-28) Kenny Umenthum: Has every little option that you would never want to configure, but doesn't have the option to let you scroll without holding command. Scrolling should be default, and then hold command button for the navigation. The smooth navigation feature is useless for anyone that enables three finger click-to-drag.
  • (2017-02-27) Malte Andersen: It keeps crashing without showing any warning or popup.
  • (2017-02-25) Tim Carlson: Why aren't these the Google Maps default gestures?! Thank you for creating this, using Google Maps for planning bike routes is so much easier now.
  • (2016-10-30) AGL L: Genial y casi imprescindible en Mac con su trackpead. En windows no va igual de bien
  • (2016-09-21) Pysis: Google Maps (at least) is so much better!!
  • (2016-08-16) Pharuehus Sinngam: Work in Google Map. But Not Work in Google My Map.
  • (2016-08-08) Alexander Quintanilla: How wonderful! Doesn't work 100% of the time, but it's VERY useful when it's working the way it should. This is basically how Google Maps should be like natively. So silly we need an extension to make it behave in an intuitive way.
  • (2016-06-15) With this enabled, PDFs cannot be opened within Chrome
  • (2016-05-31) Daniel Saltz: This is a great idea, and the map scrolling worked great for me. However, when this extension was enabled, I became unable to open PDFs on chrome. I don't really see the connection, but I troubleshooted and I'm pretty sure its this extension that's causing the problem. Fix needed!
  • (2015-10-12) Giancarlo: It does not work for me! When i try to move on the map with 2 fingers, it zooms!
  • (2015-07-21) Kareem Mobarek: I used to love it, but lately the zoom feature hasn't worked properly. Needs an urgent fix!
  • (2015-06-24) Doesn't work for me.
  • (2015-06-21) Pomožni Račun: doesnt work at all. running yosemite os on google chrome.
  • (2015-05-26) Changxing Wang: WHAT A GREAT JOB !! Google Maps is too sensitive to my magic mouse , it zooms in out every time I don't really want to.
  • (2015-05-18) Unfortunately this now breaks the new pinch to zoom behavior of Google Maps, so I'm not sure it's worth it. Hopefully Google will simply support this "scroll to drag" too, autonomously.
  • (2015-04-03) ********* Day: Works with embedded maps, but not with the new Google Maps that was rolled out recently. Needs an update.
  • (2015-03-25) Nicole Johnson: THANK YOU! I've been broken-hearted since google maps hijacked my scroll. Liberated! I am liberated! For those who are upset that after installing this extension, scroll-zoom stops working: That's the whole point. This extension turns off two-finger zoom, and replaces it with two-finger map panning. Please stop leaving bad reviews. I can two-finger map pan in all directions, and Cmd-scroll works great for zoom on my macbook air.
  • (2015-03-24) Victor Lazaro: Yes, it activates the 2 finger scrolling as it should be with Mac trackpads, but it breaks the pinch to zoom. Now I don't know which I want more...
  • (2015-03-04) Oskar Austegard: It does what it says, but is too aggressive in its application, attempting to inject js on each and every page, most often failing and throwing errors in the console. A more targeted extension would be welcomed.

  • (2017-11-29, v:2.5) William Rivlin: Can't scroll right
    Whenever I try to scroll to the right on a map, the "back" gesture is activated.
  • (2017-10-19, v:2.4) Aaron Beaudoin: Prevents login to Atlassian (Bitbucket)
    I get "Refused to execute JavaScript URL because it violates the following Content Security Policy directive: "script-src 'unsafe-eval' 'nonce-jGL1qf6EPn1pUu0hbSjliNq1rzI=' 'unsafe-inline' https: http: 'strict-dynamic'". Note that 'unsafe-inline' is ignored if either a hash or nonce value is present in the source list." when trying log in to Atlassian (Bitbucket). And the login process freezes entirely unless I disable this extension.

  • (2016-07-13, v:2.1) David Monson: Option to disable for API
    It would be great if there were an option to disable the functionality offered in this extension on websites other than Google Maps. The reason being, 3rd-party implementations of Google Maps are typically contained within a small container, rather than fullscreen within the viewport. If scrolling a through website with an API instance of Maps, and the mouse covers the map, the scrolling will immediately halt. IMO, this is poor UX.
  • (2016-07-12, v:2.1) Stephen Ferrari: I get an exception when debugging
    When I have the debug console open to debug by Javascript, I get the exception that the parameter to removeChild is not a node on the line below. I suspect it is coming up often, but with a breakpoint set on uncaught exceptions, most people don't notice it. document.documentElement.removeChild(document.getElementById('..scrollmaps_inject'));
  • (2016-04-26, v:2.0) Mike Roberts: Surprisingly, ScrollMaps extension prevents some PDFs (but not others) from displaying properly
    The following PDF does not display correctly on Mac OSX Chrome when the ScrollMaps extension is enabled: http://stanford-gfx.github.io/Horus/paper/AnInteractiveToolForDesigningQuadrotorCameraShots_supplementary.pdf When I disable the extension, this PDF displays correctly. When I enable this extension, the PDF stops displaying correctly. When the extension is enabled, I see a blank white screen instead of the PDF. Interestingly, other PDF files do display correctly with this extension.
