Native-like Web Scrolling on iOS

I’ve watched lots of attempts to mimic the iOS native scrolling physics in a webview with static elements, but they never quite feel right. I have no doubt that Apple is trying to solve this problem themselves, but in the meantime, keep an eye on Scrollability by Joe Hewitt of Firebug and Facebook fame. The library has a bit of a ways to go, but given Joe’s committment to mobile web apps since he left Facebook, I think this will succeed.
