I am using chrome and I find it annoying when I scroll through tabs unintentionally using the scroll wheel. How can I disable it? I have tried to find it but to no avail


Unfortunately, as of early September 2018, there is no way to disable this really frustrating anti-feature without modifying the source code and recompiling Chromium.

A feature request for an option to disable this absurd behavior was submitted in August 2014 and has languished for more than four years.

A detailed solution involving modifications to the Chromium source code (basically rolling back the patch that never should have been merged in the first place) is available on SuperUser.
