Mouse gestures for your browser: A lightweight and privacy-aware extension!

Image from store Windrose Gestures
Description from store Windrose is a productivity extension that allows you to trigger the most commonly used browser actions with simple gestures. For example: You can hold down the right mouse button and move the mouse in the northeast direction to refresh the current tab. Windrose reduces wrist movements by up to 80% (doctors hate it!). It's also lightweight, respects your privacy and does not track you. Also note that you need to refresh all open tabs after installing the extension and that extensions do not work on Chrome's store and settings pages. --- Permission transparency: "Read and change all your data on the websites you visit" This is necessary because the extension works in the background on all pages. Of course, it doesn’t actually read or change your data. --- Update v1.4.4: Minor improvements Update v1.4.2: Significantly reduced extension size Update v1.4.0: Added browser history navigation
