It should be pretty easy to do - it's just another option to set in

I guess it can be made optional once an Options dialogue is implemented.
I'm not generally an advocate of these sorts of things - if a UI
feature isn't made part of the OS's GUI as a matter of course then I
don't think applications should implement it individually.
That said, I'm addicted to mouse gestures in Opera and really miss them
when using a different browser.
Are there any features/gimmicks from browsers that people would like to
see in NetSurf? Full screen mode? Tabbed browsing?
OK, I just thought of another feature that would be good....
In Oregano they have a tag <oregano> for which their is various attributes
such as <oregano action="version"> outputs "Oregano Browser - Compiled
action=autohome delay=10> redirects to the users Homepage after 10 seconds.
I was thinking we could have a <netsurf> tag with similar functions...?
I've had a go adding mouse gestures to NetSurf. See http://www.opera.
You can perform gestures by holding down the middle button and moving
the mouse. Move left to go back, right to go forward, or up and then
down to reload. Other gestures listed on the Opera page are recognised
by NetSurf but not acted upon - but if the menu doesn't appear it's
probably been recognised.
Let me know how it works - I've only been testing on VA through Wine,
and the mouse movement with it is a bit dodgy at the best of times.
