Page speed has become an important consideration for the web. Google’s 2021 algorithm update makes speed a more important consideration than before for SEO. This also reflects users’ higher expectations for site speed performance since 53% of users will abandon a page that takes more than 3 seconds to load.

Scrolling has always been done vertically. This option was ideal for using standard computer scrolling with a mouse. With the expansion of technology, many designers are starting to use horizontal scrolling.
Horizontal scrolling provides comfortable showing information on small screens. This type of scrolling is a perfect solution for many web elements.
