Linux "My first brush with mouse gestures on the Opera browser was an accident, but the ability to quickly move backward or forward in the browser history, open new windows, close tabs, and more without using the menus or moving the mouse toward the navigation toolbar won me over immediately. Nowadays, this feature is available in Firefox and Konqueror too, and you can even configure mouse gestures for GNOME and KDE desktop environments." More here.

Love Mouse Gestures...

The first extension I install on my pc is always all in one gestures...

The reason is very simple - it makes browsing trivial and more efficient for me.

I really only use two gestures - click the right button and drag to the right to go back, drag left to go forward.

Drag up to open a new tab.

This, imo, is far easier than keyboard shortcuts. The only downfall? I go nuts when I'm on someone else's pc or at work ;)

P.S. - when did Osnews' members turn so very cynical and decide to complain ABOUT EVERYTHING? Lighten up people!
