What is Scroll Test?
Scroll Test is a quick and easy test for how fast you can scroll with the mouse wheel. The Scroll Test will give you the exact number of pixels scrolled in every second.
This is a very simple test that anyone can do. The results of the Scroll Test can be affected by a variety of factors, such as the type of mouse you are using, the surface you are scrolling on, and your own physical dexterity. Nevertheless, it provides a good indication of your scroll speed and can be useful for comparing your results with others.
Alternatively you can use our Click Per Second test to find out how many times you can click in a given time. Clicking faster will result in a higher score.
