This is the ideal scroll bars. You may not like it, but this is what peak performance looks like.
@bgcarlisle Unironically, Platinum is the best, most usable UI we've ever had.

It looks almost the same, but right/left-click scroll down/up, the amount is calculated by the position you click on (the lower the more will be scrolled). Middle-click drag works like usual. Scrolling btw also works with up/down keys.
@bgcarlisle the only design I saw that mayyybe improved on this layout was one where the “up” and “left” scroll arrows were accessible on “their” side of the bar as well. But that’s debatable.
