Control Firefox with mouse gestures

Some people control their web browser mainly with mouse buttons, while others prefer keyboard shortcuts. But what if you could control it with mouse gestures?

This is precisely what you can do with FireGestures, a handy Firefox extension that once you try, you won't be able to do without. FireGestures recognizes special movements you make with the mouse and performs the associated actions. So, for example, moving the mouse from left to right moves one webpage forward, from up to down opens the link on a new background tab, and so on.

These gestures are usually executed while pressing the mouse's right button so that you can freely move your mouse without being constantly opening new tabs or moving forward webpages. FireGestures also enables you to associate them with certain keyboard keys, or even the mouse wheel.

FireGestures comes with some basic movements already built into the extension, to which you can add as many new ones as you want. The FireGestures script editor though is not as easy to use as I expected, and it does take a while to get the hang of it.

FireGestures enables you to control Firefox just with mouse movements.
