Leonard’s Mozilla links

6th September 2002

Leonard Lin has blogged a whole bunch of useful Mozilla links. He also has this to say about mouse gestures:

OK, some people like gestures. I don’t because I like dragging my mouse around and highlighting stuff randomly.

So do I—that’s why I’ve got gestures configured to my right mouse button :) Judging by Leonard’s blog he uses OS X on a Mac, which I’m guessing comes with a one button mouse. The gesture package allows you to set a modified key that must be held down to activate gestures but I can’t see that this provides any real benefit over using a keyboard shortcut.
