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.

“I worked with Hilary for a time and during that period I found her to be extremely helpful and articulate. Her work was of highest standard and I was also able to observe how she interacted with her clients. While providing a top class service she maintained friendly and helpful services with them, listened to what they wanted and made appropriate suggestions. Hilary also assisted me with my work and provides services to the local community at large. I have no hesitation in recommending Hilary for any work.”
