The viewport meta tag option interactive-widget allows us to choose what the browser should do with our page when some overlay elements — such as a phone on-screen keyboard — appear:

Chrome's default behaviour on Android, before version 108, was resizes-content — it is now resizes-visual.

For example, the Library of Babel viewport meta tag is now:

content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0, interactive-widget=resizes-content"

This allows the sticky pagination component to be always visible when the on-screen keyboard is open:

Without interactive-widget, scrolling down while the keyboard was open made the sticky pagination component to disappear.
