Pre-cache adjacent chart sections to allow scrolling without waiting.

Scrolling is too slow. I have to zoom in to see airways and then wait as a scroll. Tools like Google Maps and Skyvector do a much better job of anticipating the scrolling and cache the adjacent areas of the chart.

From a purely technical aspect, yes, this is possible.

However, there are non-technical reasons we are unable to do this. Several years ago, a patent was awarded that specifically deals with how aviation charts are displayed on a desktop computer screen. Part of that patent deals with rendering the chart image larger than the screen size of the browser.
