    first of all.... no.... impractical... if you need a horizontal scroller, it sounds like you might just want to GET A BIGGER MONITOR... it's rare to see a website that can't be seen on a 17" or even 15" with a decent resolution (1024x768).. most websites are built around those stats (and that's what mine are built around, coincidently). Besides, other than the few random sites that would actually need such a thing, it would be pointless, not cost-efficient for a company to waste engineering and materials on.
    Dude, I was just THINKING about it. I didn't tell anyone to DO it.

    Documents like spreadsheets and databases frequently use horizontal scrolling.
    You could increase the resolution on your monitor, but some people don't like the miniature look.
