I want the option to make the mouse wheel scroll horizontally

Submitted by Franziska Bartsch

Let’s be honest, the web is largely vertical. That sucks. Sometimes you want to do something a bit different and you design something to scroll horizontally in your page and seems fine until you try to scroll the thing with a mouse and the only way is to awkwardly drag the scrollbar. Then you write some JavaScript and feel dirty inside ;-)

What if we could define the scroll direction for an element? Maybe something like this:

div {
scroll-orientation: horizontal;
