Can you make it so that instead of scrolling down to the next page, that I would scroll left or right to the next page. This would in a way emulate touch screen flicking with a hand giving a nicer book reading experience . Here is a sketch

instead of going continuously down, which is tiresome .Sideways like I'm suggesting will make it more fluid booklike and this will make document reading alot easier
I think there should be a plugin switch up/down left/right continuous type . how hard can it be to code .
It's not about two pages on screen . It's about page transition not down but sideways . It's an option the user ,I believe, will like to have . It shouldn't be something hard or long to code since practically it's only a modification setting . Ubuntu is about giving choice . Tell me please what operating system has the choice of scrolling sideways as a real book ! None . Ubuntu can be the first one .
Touchscreen devices are the future of mobile computing. As such who wouldn't want to have a tablet like ipad or HPslate or Notiion Ink, etc and run Ubuntu on them! We need this slide feature to add book reading as a great passtime on ubuntu.
