Yessssssssssss!!!!   :D :D :D :D

You found the plugins page then?    ;D ;D  I haven't used the mouse gestures myself, what are they supposed to do?   My mouse has buttons for back and forward, which work anyway.   :-\

One of the best bits of Mozilla has got to be the tabbed browsing, i love it. Saves on multiple instances of the browser...

If you want to go back to the previous page, you hold down the right mouse button and move the mouse to the left. Similarly to go forward, you hold the rmb and move the mouse to right.

Since getting used to it in Opera, I find myself doing it when I'm forced to use IE.

Opera has loads of gestures (as does Moz with Optimoz) but I only really use back and forward.

So, really it's not much different to having a 5 button mouse, which does the same thing.  ;)

Except, as you are always quick to point out, Moz is free :P ;)

That's very true, Sean!  Sorry, I see where you're coming from now.  As I'm so used to mine, I forgot not everyone has 5 button mouse.   :-[

Anyway, come on folks, roll up, roll up!  Anymore takers for the best free browser on the planet??

You can download Mozilla 1.4 from here, Michelle.  It's quite a big download, but should be done in the time it takes to play a Manowar CD!   ;D ;D

Oh, and this is a very cheap 5 button mouse.  You can get better ones!   ;)

Opera will be gone from my PC as soon as I can get the bloody Mouse Gestures to work to my satisfaction.


Is mouse gestures a plugin or built into Moz already?

It is a plugin called Optimoz WD.

It's a plugin, WD.  You can get it here, as well as lots of others.   :)

Can I just remind everyone that if you intend to use the Mail Client, you'll need the Spellchecker plug in.

P.S.  Sean's Optimoz link gives more info than mine.   ;)

I'm really disappointed by that one Simon :(  How difficult can it be for them to spellcheck a text entry box too. I'll have to see if there is a wishlist on their site ;)

Well, it only takes a few seconds to download the spellchecker, so that's no big deal, but I agree it would be nice to have a text entry checker.

Hi Guys, I've been using Mozilla for a while now and find it much faster, only drawback and I'm sure I should be able to solve it is that in hotmail I don't get the text editor and on msn communities same problem so I can't alter font, use smilies etc, any ideas?
