That's impossible guys, I tried it on my iMac (mid 2007) at home and at my iMac (2010) and it works flawlessly.

I would give it a 3/5 just bacause of some missing features/gestures.
Keep working developers. ;)

to the developer: can you please make a super simple extension for moving through active tabs only? i don't find apple's intuitive. something like shift-command-] for forward and shift-command-[ for backward.

Does it appear in your Safari Extension settings (should look like on the screenshot)? The default setting is to execute gestures with the middle mouse button, did you try to set it to the right button? The extension seems to work well for many people and it does look pretty solid here, maybe some kind of an error on your side?


Well, I installed it in my Safari 5.0 extensions but can't get it to work.
I've already got my mouse's middle button set to open a designated folder when clicked, so it does nothing else but that.
And my mouse's right button is set to double click.
Possibly I'm missing something here or am just not grokking the concept.
So far, I'm mystified.


please i'm sorry if i am insulting your intelligence but i always start with the simple stuff first. you need to enable the Develop menu (check Show Develop Menu In Menu Bar under Advanced preferences), then pull down to Enable Extensions.


I HAVE got 'enable extensions' in Develop Menu checked, 'Enable MouseGestures' in the MouseGestures window checked and the 'ON' button there enabled but still can't make sense of it.
There must be a step that I'm overlooking.


I also did all those steps and can see the extension in the extensions window. I played with the setting with no success.


@SYZZYGY and RADIOFLYER. just letting youse know i read your replies and wish i could be of more help. but while this extension caught my interest it's not exactly what i'm looking for, so i didn't download it or try it out or anything.
