Save time with Scroll to Top Button

Return to the top of the page quickly with this clever Chrome extension.

If you've ever used the popular microblogging site Tumblr, you're familiar with the handy little button that appears in the upper-right corner of the screen after you've scrolled down a bit, making it easy to return to the top of the page after reading a seemingly endless stream of posts. If you'd like to add that functionality to all Web pages, trying Scroll to Top Button. This simple Chrome extension does exactly what the name suggests, letting users quickly jump back to the top of a page after a lengthy period of scrolling down.

Scroll to Top Button installed without issues, and went into action immediately. We tried it on other social media sites, news sites, and a variety of other places that tend to have long pages. As we scrolled down, the extension displayed a discreet, translucent button in the upper-right corner of the page, and clicking it quickly returned us to the top. If you'd like a bit more flexibility, though, Scroll to Top Button has plenty of options that let you customize its behavior. The extension can be set to allow you to flip between the top and bottom, display dual arrows, or use only a keyboard shortcut. You can also set the speed at which the extension scrolls up and down. One menu item lets you enable or disable marketing, though it comes enabled by default and we didn't notice any advertising anywhere.

Overall, we think that Scroll to Top Button is a great addition to Chrome. You probably don't waste that much time scrolling manually, but if something can be made quicker and easier, why not?
