Latest version of Chrome for Android

Seems to be caused by the use of ‘overflow-y:hidden;’ css attribute on body, remove this from responsive code using 100% widths to control the width of the page..

See a thread discussing the new behaviour here: https://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=444581

W3C Spec for overflow

This tweak to Google Chrome for Android seems to be directed by the W3C spec for overflow and it’s use. Overflow-x or overflow-y seem to be becoming redundant, whether overflow is x or y it seems they will be treated as one entity, most likely being deprecated at some point.

Overflow on a body tag will take the viewport size and apply it. This might not be expected behaviour for some front end devs.
