@rasagy Yup, the aim was not to get rid of scroll bars altogether. We were okay with vertical scroll after a certain point.

@rasagy Ah, yes, intentional again. Maybe you find it odd as you are resizing the browser. In most practical scenarios we want the padding.

@rasagy If you mean the current width/height when the scrollbar(s) appear, then yes, we didn’t want to go any smaller than that.
