Advertisement Cool active image on Leopard homepage by Martin MC Brown Aug 8, 2006 - 10:33 PM CDT 12 Comments Tweet Share Post If you visit the Leopard page and have a scroll mouse, try using the scroll wheel while hovering over the Leopard image at the top of the main page.

Namebrand August 25th, 2006 Or just hit the space bar to play the whole (short) movie. baz August 17th, 2006 I actually find this to be highly annoying – when i try to scroll to the bottom of the page and inadvertantly end up screwing with a quicktime movie instead, i get mighty peeved very quickly. Its certainly not the intuitive experience i expect from an apple creation (the webpage , not quicktime per-se) Marc August 11th, 2006 Chris: You can watch any Quicktime movie backwards and forwards. Chris Coleman August 10th, 2006 What should be happening. When I try to scroll with the wheel on Firefox at work, it well, scrolls the page. Piko August 9th, 2006 Normal!! All quicktime movies respond to the scroll wheel in this way… LAME!!! :P Piko weisheng August 9th, 2006 Yep, this can be done in all Quicktime movies. Jaakko August 9th, 2006 You don’t need a scroll for that, just click on the movie and press left and right arrow keys respectively. David Appleyard August 9th, 2006 Cool indeed! And yes, a QuickTime thing :) Martin MC Brown August 9th, 2006 OK, it seems that this is just a simple effect of them using a QuickTime movie to give a ‘swish’ on that element you load the page. To be honest, I had never noticed that effect on movies embedded in web pages before. The scroll-mouse interaction is part of the Quicktime/Movie playback. So far it has worked for me in Safari and OmniWeb. It is, though, still cool :) Moofius August 9th, 2006 I can’t get it to work. (Opera 9, win) Comments are closed.
