I am in the process of setting Mouse Gestures Redox (nightly) up for Mozilla Firefox 5.
I assume the browser is what most will be replying for.
I don't use browsers that don't have mouse guestures.
From what I recall, Opera was the first to use them that I remember, back when Opera was not free but did have an "ad" version.
i use Mouse Stroke for Chrome.
i just discovered mouse gestures a few months ago but it's something i could not do without while browsing.
Microsoft will be releasing a gesture mouse around August 15.
i'll be reading the reviews to see if it's worth picking up.
I use Smooth Gestures for Chromium.
Nope. I have nothing against them. I just never remember to use them.
Definitely not. On a laptop, keyboard shortcuts are a thousand times faster.
I never have used them. To me they are aggravating, if you move your mouse in the wrong way then you will get unexpected results.
The first browser that I recall seeing mouse gestures was Maxthon Classic (MyIE), they were enable by default. I didn't take me long to disabled them since all they did was it is difficult for me to use Maxthon.
They can be, depending on what you are doing. Opera has some nice hotkeys to navigate tabs, the best IMO.
As for mouse gesturing, to "go back" and "close a tab" or "open in new tab" I have yet to find a hotkey that is as quick.
I agree, too many is not so much fun at times. I usually limit mine to about 4-6 functions and turn the rest off.
No, but I might in the future.
Used them regularly when I was an Opera user (a few years ago).
But after abandoning Opera, somehow I lost the custom.
never did. in a near future, i suppose, voice command will replace mg's.
Always used it with Maxthon (since Maxthon was called MyIE years ago).
That might be neat, but every voice type tool I have ever used is either far from accurate or takes a LOT of training to get to work decent.
I absolutely love mouse gestures. I first used them on opera and now y have a plugin installed in firefox to have the gestures too
for the time being, unfortunately that's true.
Only rocker gestures (back and forward). It's one thing Opera really does better, very smooth and quick.
In Firefox, i find them a bit messy, except for one, FF Rocker, which doesn't work properly in Linux
But the keyboard is what i use more, Alt-left/right for back/forward, and Ctrl-PgUp/PgDown to navigate tabs, Ctrl-W to close tab, Ctrl-L to focus address bar, etc.
Barely used them a long time ago. Neat, but not that useful for me.
I use StrokeIt for system-wide mouse gestures:
Although I only have two gestures programmed at the moment:
Down (Ctrl + End):
Up (Ctrl + Home):
I removed all of the default gestures.
Since I have a Logitech Wireless Wave Combo MK550, I configured Logitech SetPoint so that a flick of the center button to the left will Close the current application, and a flick of the center button to the right will Maximize the current application.
I don't use them.
I don't use mouse gestures, however, I on occasion have been known to gesture at my mouse.
I didn't vote as I wasn't sure what you counted as a gesture. For instance, are you including drag and drop? If so, then it is yes otherwise the answer is no.
lol - Need a separate poll asking which Wilders members require counselling for their anger management or behavioural issues.
Edit: Decided to vote 'other'
Mouse Gestures? who needs that crap when you have a keyboard
No never have.
Separate names with a comma.
