- Rated 1 out of 5by Aimhere, 3 years agoDoesn't really have much effect on scrolling. Modern web browsers already SMOOTHLY scroll between those three-line increments, not "choppy" at all as Logitech claims.
What this extension DOES do is mess with the scroll wheel functionality on many websites. For example, on a weather site, the wheel can't be used to zoom in or out on the weather map while this extension is active.
- Rated 1 out of 5by Aro, 3 years agoLogitech recommends to install just after mouse installation. Unfortunately it messes up with scroll events so it causes problems on pages relying on them (e.g. Adobe Cloud web apps). Also I don't see any difference with or without add-on so no point in installing it.
- Rated 1 out of 5by BWX, 4 years agoThe only thing it does is add a nasty delay.. and does not smooth anything any more than without it.
- Rated 1 out of 5by treesap, 4 years agoIt's not for me. Effectively kills usability in exchange for aesthetics.
In essence, this extension just makes scrolls "slower." Rather than the page immediately moving to where the mouse wheel directs it, it moves there more slowly and, indeed, smoothly. It has a degree of reverse-acceleration, i.e. The first 80% of the scrolled section goes by quickly, while the last 20% moves slowly. This has the effect of making it difficult to immediately see where the page has been scrolled to, thus one cannot get the instant feedback necessary to determine whether more scrolling is necessary in order to view the part of the page desired.
Scrolling is designed to enhance usability. This extension sacrifices usability in exchange for making the action more visually pleasing.
(Side note: I fail to see why one needs to have the SetPoint software installed (and thus use a Logitech mouse) in order to use this extension. This extension is overall just marketing wank--simply another bulletpoint to add to the "features" section when selling the hardware.

- Rated 1 out of 5by Firefox user 14286762, 4 years agoExtension absurdement intrusif : est-ce légal ? LISEZ les droits demandés : accès à TOUTES vos données effectuées sur Internet, même vos mots de passe ! Je vous conseille de faire comme moi : signalez ce module à Firefox.
- Rated 1 out of 5by clach04, 4 years agoDoes not appear to do anything/work. No difference under Windows with SetPoint Software Version: 6.69.126 (2019-04-25). Uninstalled, no idea why it needs the permissions it requests.
- Rated 1 out of 5by Firefox user 12745073, 4 years agoI could not find why it is required to give all those permissions: Access your data for all websites & Access browser tabs. Also it's not really updated anymore...
