Just a little annoyance, something I can't get used to. I don't think there's a solution, I just want to vent:

I've become very used to my Powerbook's trackpad, and use two-finger scrolling all the time to navigate around large windows. If an image is hanging off the screen, or I see a scrollable IFRAME in a web page, then those two fingers automatically come down.

Google Maps (and other mapping sites have recently started doing the same thing) uses the "scroll" action to zoom in and out, and click-and-drag to move around the map. So every time I visit Google Maps, I see that little map and I want to know what's just off the screen to the right there... and the next thing I know I'm looking at a world map. Grrrr.
