    Default [Ext/US] Chrome Gestures (modified)

    Made this a new thread to 1) Conform with posting guidelines. 2) Because it's not beta 0.1 anymore. 3) Because the other thread was getting clogged.

    Extension: Chrome Gestures

    Original Developer: Kyrax.

    Further Modifications By: Kryptyx and Waha.

    Latest Version: 1.1 for Beta Project Page

    You can file suggestions and bug reports in the Issues tracker on the project page. You can also find help documents on the Wiki

    Description: Mouse gestures for Chrome.

    Known Cavet(s): Gesture visualizations may not work correctly on pages with iframes. Gestures will not work on non-html pages. (Such as txt documents)

    ~ Version History ~
    See project page.

    Browser Compatibility:3.0.x.x

    ~ Screenshots ~



    All information for writing your own gestures is in the ChromeGestures.user.js file. If you write a cool one, share it with us by posting here!
    You can also ask for help in writing one if you want.

    As an aside..the help file draws all the trails using HTML 5 canvas..neat huh? :]

    Can I congratulate you two on a truly awesome Extension/User Script (and I've seen and used a few in my time!) and putting up with me!!

    One thing (you just knew there would be !) in the help for Double Click can I suggest you change the description so that it reflects clicking again will restore your original content ..

    I noticed that the Extension and User Script versions are actually the same and uses the .user version of the script and the JS has an IF(!us) statement for the Options (I'm assuming will only work in the Dev version)..

    Is this how you intend to continue development (ie Use an IF(us), if the function will only work in the Dev version)...

    As a matter of interest why did you create another 2 refresh gestures (or am I missing something)...

    Finally, is there any way of providing a link to the help file (I guess you’re going to say No because it’s included in the JS), I’d like to use it in a post I’ve done about this Extension on the Chrome Help forum

    All in all, a commendable piece of work (A+)...

    @mg2 ...

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but as has been previously mentioned on various posts on this forum we do not support Chromium ...

    Basically any issues you have with something not working in Chromium you can not expect any support from this forum or it's members ...

    I'm sure you've been told this before ...

    Nice work Waha !

    Do you think we should start an open source project around this extension ?
    I'd like to contribute back to what you have added.

    My life should be much more calm starting next week so I'll have more time on my hands to work on that.

    Thanks for sharing, awesome work.

    This is fantastic!! Thank you. This was just another one of those Firefox extensions I couldn't live without. I too would be interested in contributing to an open source project.

    FEATURE REQUEST:

    I would really like to be able to set my own custom gestures. Personally I like (swipe left = back), (swipe right = forward), (swipe up = undo close tab), (swipe down = close current tab). And that's all I use and am so used to it that it would be no fun trying to break old habits. How hard is it going to be to implement custom gestures?

    Thank you again for the amazing extension.

    It's fairly easy if you modify the JS file yourself. I am working on a few changes at the moment and I have been debating on tapping into Waha's loader to allow easy custom gestures. Right now im focused on adding more visualization to the extension.

    I did want to mention that re-opening closed tabs via gesture is not currently possible. Its a limitation that extensions suffer as a whole (more of a security issue). We may see an API for this in the future though.
