Image from store Tablet Gestures
Description from store A device with a multi-touch screen (such as a tablet) is required. Supported actions include: - open a new tab - close current tab - go to left tab - go to right tab - go back in current page - go forward in current page - duplicate current tab - reload current tab The default configuration is: - open new tab on "up" gesture - close current tab on "down" gesture - focus left tab on diagonal "top-left" gesture or diagonal "bottom-left" gesture - focus right tab on diagonal "bottom-right" gesture or diagonal "top-right" gesture The gesture is only recognized if your fingers move in parallel in the same direction. If you do "pinches", it will not respond, because the pinch is reserved for zooming the page. You can also configure how many fingers are required to perform gestures in case 2 fingers is too easy to accidentally activate. You can also configure how long the fingers need to travel (in pixels) before a gesture is recognized. The default is 110 pixels which is suitable for medium-sized devices. You don't need to lift your fingers at the end for the gesture to recognize. Just keep moving them in the desired direction and once it reaches the threshold the gesture will activate automatically.
