When the HTC Flyer fixes landed, they regressed overscroll resistance. A patch to reenable it is forthcoming.
Created attachment 580300 [details] [diff] [review] Proposed patch. Proposed patch attached. This patch also makes overscroll resistance work for pinch-to-zoom. This helps prevent users from zooming the page out to ridiculously small sizes.

A comment to the effect that you're scaling it towards 1.0 would also be good.
