I dunno. Widget-driven scrolling is pretty old fasioned, with new touchpad and scrollwheel tech.
Hiding the scrollbar until use or hover. This makes sense on a touchscreen, but otherwise, why do it? Why remove all that useful information that's available on first glance?
Infinite scroll (i.e. automatically loading new content at the bottom of the page). Simple horrible. In essence, if you use this you are teaching users not to trust the scrollbar anymore.
So nobody really uses scrollbars to scroll, but rather to simply judge the length of a document? Sounds like a problem just waiting for a solution.
