jQuery ClassyScroll can be used not only as replacement of native browser scrollbars, but you can use it even to create slideshows with external controls.
Among other features ClassyScroll can auto adjust scrollbars on window resize and recognize touch events on Android and iOS devices, so it’s perfect for responsive sites that have to dynamically adapt to different environments and devices.
slimScroll is a small jQuery plugin that transforms any div into a scrollable area with a nice scrollbar - similar to the one Facebook and Google started using in their products recently.

nanoScroller.js is a jQuery plugin that offers a simplistic way of implementing Mac OS X Lion-styled scrollbars for your website. It uses minimal HTML markup being

iScroll 4 is a complete rewrite of the original iScroll code.

This unfortunate situation prevents any web-app to have a position:absolute header and/or footer and a scrolling central area for contents.
jScrollPane is a cross-browser jQuery plugin which converts a browser's default scrollbars (on elements with a relevant overflow property) into an HTML structure which can be easily skinned with CSS.
