After a recent update of Google chrome which happened on my Google Chrome Dev Channel yesterday, the mouse scroll wheel stopped working on the way to scroll up the page. Scroll down functionality seemed to work fine. When you restart your computer, Google Chrome updates are almost automatically implemented without user intervention.
