Mozilla Firefox 0.9 : An Extendable Tool Comes of Age (30 Jun 2004)
What is a mouse gesture? It is an extension that allows you to do common, repetitive tasks with a motion (usually combined with a click) anywhere on your screen, rather than clicking menu buttons or using keyboard shortcuts. Think of them as uber-shortcuts. For example, right-clicking and dragging left will take you back to the previous page. A little red line, being drawn on the screen as you do this, lets you know you are in the middle of executing a gesture. Doing the opposite gesture to the right would move you forward. Just about anything you can do with a button or menu item, Firefox will let you do as a gesture, including opening new tabs, switching between tabs, and reloading pages.
