Let's suppose you have a rather long document, for instance a book chapter, and you want to render it in your browser à la iBooks/Kindle. That's rather easy with just a dash of CSS:

body {
height: calc(100vh - 24px);
column-width: 45vw;
overflow: hidden;
margin-left: calc(-50vw * attr(currentpage integer));

Yes, yes, I know that no browser implements that attr()extended syntax. So put an inline style on your body for margin-left: calc(-50vw * <n>) where <n> is the page number you want minus 1.

Then add the fixed positioned controls you need to let user change page, plus gesture detection. Add a transition on margin-left to make it nicer. Done. Works perfectly in Firefox, Safari, Chrome and Opera. I don't have a Windows box handy so I can't test on Edge.
