FireGestures Adds Mouse Gestures Navigation On Firefox [Add-On] (5)

Previously we have covered a Google Chrome extension called Smooth Gestures which adds cool navigation via mouse gesture in Chrome. There are some similar add-ons for Firefox whose will offer missing gesture navigation on Firefox too. One of them are FireGestures. FireGestures is an extension for Firefox that does all that and more. The extension lets you customize mouse gesture for any predefined function. It allows you to change how a mouse gesture appears (the line color, thickness, idle time etc.) and define specific functions using a combination of the Ctrl, Shift and Alt keys with mouse movements. The slight flaw with it is that if it reaches the last tab in a window, it starts again from the first and you can scroll till doomsday without realizing you’ve already reached the last tab but it is nonetheless a great way to switch tabs. More after the break.
