Editors' Note: The Download Now link will prompt a local download of the Firefox extension. To install the extension directly, open the file using your Firefox browser.
This Firefox extension boosts the capabilities of your mouse, particularly as you surf, but configuration may be overwhelming. You can access EasyGestures' tabbed GUI from the Tools menu of your browser. It's easy to start the program; just click on the mouse's scroll button to access the pop-up menu. The pie-shaped menu offers several functions in a centralized location, most of which are page and tab navigational controls to ease the pain of sliding your mouse pointer all over the screen. Quickly toggle back and forward, switch between tabs, instantly bookmark pages, and head to your home page without going to your toolbar. You'll be able to look up word definitions, zoom in or out of Web sites, highlight searched terms in a Web page, and more. Set up EasyGestures to launch user-definable scripts, URLs, and applications. The program works great, but the multitude of features and customizations can overwhelm beginners until they get the hang of the program. It doesn't include a help file either, only start-up tips. Power users will benefit from it, but with time and patience, this freeware will prove handy for all levels.
easyGestures is a software made for the Mozilla Firefox browser. It is a 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 with minimum mouse movement. The fast straight mouse gestures you perform this way save you from reaching toolbars, menus and keyboard and keep you from having to memorize any gestures. All behaviors and actions are customizable.
