I've been reading about mouse gestures (currently only work in Opera), and they sound like they're really useful & save time. However, I'm wondering if it's easy to get used to them. Does anyone use them regularly?

Note: for those who don't know what a mouse gesture is, it's a way of performing certain predefined actions by moving the mouse around. For example, to go to the previous page, you can hold down the left mouse button and move it to the left. Sounds cool, doesn't it? Wink

Nope, never used them to be honest, never had a reason to, only reason I use Opera is if I need Java,

I don't use very often. One gets used to it after a few hours. (Like I changed I mouse button, after 3 hours I was working as it I have been working that way since quite long) but there is a disadvantage: you miss them on some other computer and takes more time to work as you try it and it fails, then you remember this wont work here and try to memorize the keyboard shortcut for that...

Makes me think of the scroller thing on most mice these days: I use it all the time. But when I use a mouse where there isn't one, I feel lost Crying or Very sad! Even though it isn't there, my finger still tries to use it. Laughing

I love mouse gestures, and use them every day. You get used to them in no time.

BTW, adam, you can get mouse gestures in mozilla. Go to http://optimoz.mozdev.org/gestures/ to download them.

I'm hoping that the days of IE and Microsoft's monopoly (not just limited to browsers) are numbered. There's been quite a lot of news recently about companies adopting linux...so it's a definate possibility Very Happy
