Simple Yet Robust Scrollbar Plugin - jQuery sScrollBar

A simple and highly customizable scrollbar jQuery plugin designed to provide an easy-to-implement upgrade over the native browser scrollbar. Supports both horizontal and vertical scrollbars.

Its responsive sizing automatically adjusts the scrollbars to fit containers that change size. This makes the plugin useful for scrollable elements that resize with responsive layouts. 

The customizable appearance options allow matching the scrollbars' style to your site's design. You can set custom colors, opacity levels, borders, and other attributes. 

Simple Scrollbar works well on text-heavy pages like blogs, guides, docs, and long articles where native scrollbars lack usability.
