Rodent-side assistance

HamsterBrow is a fully-featured web browser with advanced hamster-powered scrolling capabilities available on your command. 

An expertly trained hamster patiently waits for you, eagerly bounding into its wheel when summoned to assist with your web browsing needs.

Can’t swipe / won’t swipe

Can’t swipe your screen due to sticky fingers? Cold outside and wearing gloves? Holding onto public transport for dear life? Or perhaps just feeling lazy?

No problem! Super-smooth hamster-assisted tilt or swipe scrolling to the rescue!

Hamster-assisted tilt mode

Tilt backwards or forwards to signal your hamster to scroll the page.

Your hamster will pause while the screen is touched so that you always remain in complete control.

Great for skimming through webpages and documents while resting your fingers.

Hamster-assisted swipe mode

Swipe up or down to signal your hamster to scroll the page.

Touch the screen to immediately stop your hamster from running.

Great for hands-free reading or for taking notes.

Scroll control panel

Engage the scroll control panel in swipe mode for button activated scrolling. 

Take full control of the scrolling direction, speed and paging by activating the on-screen buttons.

Great for more finely-tuned scrolling and for interaction using iOS accessibility controls.
