This is a discussion on Chrome Mouse Gestures? within the Chrome Plugins section, part of the Google Chrome category: Rocker is great except IT DOES ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. Releasing a browser this day and age without mouse gestures built in ...

    Rocker is great except IT DOES ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.

    Releasing a browser this day and age without mouse gestures built in (I'm looking at you also, Firefox) is just plain unacceptable. Having a release out this long and not including mouse gestures is unbelievable. I'm surprised they've had time to implement being able to click links!

    Opera is the only one that comes with it built in that I know of.

    Also Maxthon (previously MyIe2) has this feature built in.

    Maxthon is incredible but with the amount of tabs i work with (over 50) makes it slow after a few hours and consumes too much resources.

    So now i'm spreading it with firefox and chrome I do prefer Maxthon, if only it would be a super efficient and better at handling a large amount of tabs (like the other browsers I mentioned that also have this problem).

    Chrome is the faster browser though. But that might be because all tabs are a process on there own, which should be uncrashable because they are separate, but believe me when I say, chrome did crash horribly and i lost all my tabs a few times

    On one hand- yay for competition so we can have better browsers for free, but on the other hand- boo for competition because it hinders true development, if all those companies sat down together and discussed their ideas and knowledge, only then would we have something that actually does what we require of it and maybe more.

    Ah... i could go on and on because in this monetary based system, this will never happen. (see www.zeitgeistmovie.com for more on this )

    Firefox is meant to be modular. It would be inappropriate for it to include a built-in mouse gesture feature because there are several different choices of mouse gesture extensions to suit various needs and/or desires.

    As to Chrome, the absence of any kind of mouse gesture extension or plug-in limits its usefulness to me. I would certainly use it much more if it was customizable in the way that Firefox is.

    Chrome is plenty customizable at the moment, at least enough for Mouse Gestures. Chrome is just new, and there aren't many extension developers yet, and the few that there are are very busy people. :p

    Hello everyone, this is my first post!

    You could use the latest version of StrokeIt http://www.tcbmi.com/strokeit/ which has been recently updated and now supports all Windows versions up to 7 and comes with preconfigured gestures for Google Chrome. It gives you system wide gestures (it's SWEET to use gestures in Windows Explorer!!).

    After you install it, fix two of the gestures for Chrome: New tab and close tab. Just change the "action" from "\Up" to "Up" and "\Down" to "Down" to make it work, or customize it to whatever you see fit.

    @0blivious Ahh, Maxthon Mouse Gestures, there are no better. It took me 3 different add-ons to made Firefox **** how similar but it was not the same. You have no idea how much I miss them in Chrome but Maxthon get to slow at some point.
