    This seems like the kind of skeuomorphism that could have helped when people were first getting acquainted with computers. It looks like a literal scroll. You can tell where you are based on the proportions of the rolls on either side.

    I think this is really backwards. PThe thing about skeuomorphs is that they're a great stepping stone to interfaces that no longer need them, but people are already well versed in scroll bars. This is like if someone said "we really need buttons to look like actual buttons, rounded rectangles don't speak the language of humans!" Well, yes, they do, because the language of humans has evolved to include these new buttons as well as scroll bars.

    Like many people have said, this is a solution without a problem.
