    Yeah, maybe I phrased it somewhat harsh/wrongly. I don't have data on it other than my own experience whenever I stumble upon it, my parents (the best subjects for user testing! ;-) ), discussions with fellow peers and twitter-reactions.

    So. No. No study or official user testing.

    I don't think this was subtly done. It told a story that was powerful but it was the story that was interesting, not the way it was told.

    The webpage changed how a basic input device works. It confuses the user. I'm sure of it.

    Also, I'm curious about accessibility issues with solutions like this.

    In my humble opinion this website would be better, and still tell the same story, if they just ignored the "snapping" scroll-hijacking and just use a regular scroll.
