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.

I'm wondering who did invent mouse gestures.

The oldest software I know using it is the Mentor Graphics EDA suite for Schematics, PCB and simulation.
It used plenty of mouse gestures on X11 workstations (and still does)


(Yes I did search in Wikipedia and got no answer, maybe I'll do a patent search someday...)
