TeXniscope allows continuous horizontal scrolling, which comes the closest
to my non-electronic experience of reading of any pdf viewer that I have
ever found. To the best of my knowledge no other pdf viewer does this,
although I don't claim my knowledge to be definitive. I once put in a
feature request to the developers of Skim for this and their response was
along the lines of it not being part of the relevant Apple framework and so
not something that they can do.
