Don’t mess with browsers capabilities

I’ve read this article on why we shouldn’t mess with the defaults of browsers and it made me think of this article I’ve read last week. It was only at the very end of the article, that I realized it was written by as well. I never heard the term “external consistency” before, which (cut short) refers to things (like scrollbars or scroll-behavour) that users know and therefore shouldn’t be changed, if you want the experience to be consistent.
