easyGestures - Visual mouse gestures for Firefox


Mouse gestures is cool. But the main problem with it is remembering the gestures! Mouse gestures were supposed to make page navigation easier but without any visual guide, it needs too much effort to actually use it. So easyGestures brings a visual pie menu that pops up inside the browser when you click the mouse and then let you perform various actions at the tip of the mouse pointer. The result is: easier mouse gestures that require no memorizing.


Moving the mouse over the arrow at the top reveals more pie menus each with more actions. You also type in the URL directly within the pie menu in its integrated location bar.


The size of the menu is customizable and can even be changed from the circular pie menu to a standard vertical menu.

There are altogether 68 predefined actions, and these can be easily added, modified or removed thorough the customization options.

One interesting feature of easyGestures is the availability of statistics about pie menu usage. The statistics window shows what actions you performed and how frequently.


Because easyGestures essentially brings the tool bar to the mouse, you can disabled it and hence increase the viewing area of the browser window.
