Fennec & Gestures

Felipe Gomes has been busy. We talked on IRC a short time ago about adding a gesture engine to Fennec. He made a video of the current version. The results are very cool. His work is being tracked in bug 476425. The engine is currently packaged as an extension, so you can play with it yourself. Just pull from Felipe’s repository and put the code inside your extensions folder in your profile.

Go digg it!

    Looks very cool. I like how the algorithms work by comparing shapes/movements, making it more reliable than the traditional UDLR detecting. This seems like a perfect example of an extension that should be featured/recommended for Fennec.

    Great! Hope, Palm won’t sue Mozilla :D

    the twist should be a loupe function:
    right twist: zoom in
    left twist: zoom out
