summary: Horizontal scrollbar
class: wish: This is a request for an enhancement.
difficulty: tricky: Needs many tuits.
priority: low: We aren't sure whether to fix this or not.

Some people would like a horizonal scrollbar, because they want to be able to look at things wider than the screen. This wouldn't be analagous to the vertical scrollbar, since that allows viewing of the (read-only) scrollback, whereas a horizontal scrollbar would adjust which part of a larger terminal was visible.

A simple workaround for users of Unix systems is to install less and use less -S to view their files and command output.

Audit trail for this wish.
