Mouse Gestures - Cool Firefox Addon!

Post by Computer Guru on Fri Jun 12, 2009 10:50 pm

Mouse Gestures are a fast way to execute commands without using the
keyboard, menus or toolbars. Instead, the user holds down a mouse
button (usually the right one), moves the mouse in a certain way to
form a gesture, then releases the mouse button.

In web browsers
like Mozilla Firefox or the Mozilla Suite, gestures are used to go back
or forward a page, switch between tabs, open multiple links at once,
control text or image size, and numerous other functions. It also works
with Opera, unfortunately IE users are left in the dust.

Back (Left):
Goes back a page in the browsing history.

Forward (Right):
Goes one page forward in the browsing history.

Close Tab/Window (Down-Right):
Closes the active tab, or if there is only one tab, the window.

New Tab (Up):
Opens the link crossed by the gesture in a new tab. If there is no such link, an empty tab is opened.

New Window (Down):
Opens the link crossed by the gesture in a new browser window. If there is no such link, an empty window is opened.

Open links in tabs (end with Right-Up-Left):
Making any gesture ending with a straight Right-Up-Left movement opens all crossed links in tabs.

Mouse Gestures v1.5 - Key Features:

* Customizable gesture mappings: You can easily choose which gesture
triggers which action. There is no need to type in codes, just click
"Recognize" and do the gesture you want!
* Unlimited set of
functions: Besides over 60 built-in gesture functions, you can add your
own. With a little knowledge of JavaScript, you can create a gesture
that does exactly what you want. Everything that you can do via menus
or toolbar buttons can be done with a gesture!
* Easy gesture
sharing: With special links placed on web pages, everyone can import
gesture mappings and new functions, and everyone can publish their own.
Visit Gesture Exchange to see some examples.
* Bookmark gestures:
Create a gesture that opens any of your bookmarks - in the current
tab/window, a new tab or window, or the sidebar. Just click the
"Gesture" button in a bookmark's properties window to define a gesture
for it.
* Sidebar that helps you learn: Mouse Gestures includes a
Firefox sidebar that displays drawings that show you how to make each
gesture, and offers shortcuts to settings and web pages via the context
menu. After installing, press Ctrl-Shift-O or drag the Mouse Gestures
Guide button to your Firefox toolbar.
* Wheel rockers: Hold down a
mouse button and scroll the mouse wheel to trigger an action of your
choice - for example, resizing images/text or quickly switching tabs.
* Unmatched compatibility: Regardless whether you use Windows or Linux,
whether you're using Firefox, Thunderbird, SeaMonkey, the Mozilla Suite
or Chatzilla - Mouse Gestures are there. (It may even run on other
operating systems
