User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:6.0a1) Gecko/20110426 Firefox/6.0a1
Build Identifier: 

Rather than using the method of taking the page, removing it and then adding it back at the bottom. The page should instead scroll continuously allowing the user to stop the page at a point and also looking aesthetically better than blinking out and back in.

Reproducible: Always
I think we want some scrolling, so the user knows what's happening, but we don't want to scroll completely down the page. On long pages that kinda defeats the purpose of quickly getting to the bottom (or top).

IMO, we should show a little scrolling, then jump to the bottom (or top).

The jump as it currently stands looks messy. I believe that we could start the scroll slowly and then simulate a jump by rapidly speeding up until it reaches the bottom.
Mark, we can always force the pan to happen in 500ms max or something, so that this happens quickly regardless of the page size.

Unless we can draw fast enough to actually show something as the page pans (which we can't yet), I'm not sure if this is valuable though. Would it be useful for users just to just see the scrollbar animate from their current position to the top/bottom?

showing the scrollbars moving would be a nice indicator

Due to your comments I will mark this bug as NEW. Another thing that might bother the users is that when using the two finger scrolling one can see for about 1s only checkerboards. . .
