Improve Kinetic Scrolling and Make Finger Swipe Smooth on Android Phone, Tablet

I have been using nexus 7 for more than 2 weeks, but one thing which I noticed during my usage is that when ever I need to navigate in between different home screes I noticed that it was actually not smooth transition and moving between homescreens on nexus 7 was not much finger friendly as it was not a quick swipe but a full swipe to move the homescreen towards the left or right to reveal the next homescreen.

Another thing which I noticed while browsing a web page in google chrome browser was not much smoother, it required multiple swipe gestures to scroll down to the bottom of a page, initially I thought it is because of the faulty touch screen sensor. After some search I found out there it was not because of the hardware fault in Nexus 7, but it was due to configuration settings which one can easily configure and change in android.
