Implement basic navigation gestures with touchpads/trackpads.

  • Re: Basic touchpad navigation gestures.

    Not to necrobump that thread I decided to create a new one, but the petition is the same. I am using Opera on Windows and I've looked everywhere but there's no "touchpad/trackpad gestures" section.

    When working with a laptop it's quick and easy to get used to swiping across the trackpad left or right with 2 fingers to go backwards or forwards in the tab history. I think it's something that should be too complicated to implement and would make the life of laptop users that much easier.

    You don't even need to keep the previous page cached if you don't want to (although that kind of "preloading" would be nice), just the way to add a shortcut to back and forward for 2 finger horizontal swipes.

    Note that the 2 finger vertical swiping for scrolling is something that comes native in the OS already (even on Linux), the horizontal one feels just as natural.
