Release Date For FF 3.1b3
"early Feb, 2009 (estimated)"
So don't expect a 3.1 release until at least March-April.
jerk up and down?
I didn't know FF came equipped with a bar - but now that I do know, would someone tell me where the bartender's gone?
There has been a mouse gestures addin for firefox for ages, shortly after the feature debuted in Opera if memory serves.
All this is doing is giving it the 2 fingers.
It's incredible to see how these devices have included better and more commonly used features over the years. I may be getting a touch nostalgic, I remember the good ol' days when Macbooks were mostly used for starting a roaring fire on a cold winter night. Chuck a couple of logs and a Macbook into the fire place, turn it on, sit back and enjoy the crackle of a merry flame, with perhaps a bit of a sing song.
Between multi-touch and pr0n mode, this could get....sticky...
Insert finger joke here.
Those touchpads are HORRIBLE
The bosses here have them, so obviously I have to sort them out from time to time. Those mice are the God-awful spawn of Satan himself. For context purposes, I have pretty big hands, and RSI to boot, and those things just make it worse.
I'll try moving the pointer across the screen. The pad doesn't respond.
I'll press harder. The pad interprets my one big finger as two or something and decides I want to scroll instead. GAAAH.
I'll try clicking. The first tap does nothing, the second tap brings up a context menu, the third tap left clicks. What the hell?
Attempting to use them properly makes my wrists feel like that episode in Voyager with the out-of-phase alien dudes experimenting on people. Wow, that made me feel nerdy all over.
wrong way pinching
Surely pinching the fingers together should zoom out, not in? And moving the fingers apart should zoom in? That's the way round it works on the ipod touch?
Pinch together / Apart
Surely you'v got that AFE(*) ?
Surely pinch together should be zoom out, and pinch apart should be zoom in?
(*) AFE = Ass for Elbow.
Swipe up should move to the bottom of the page - you're swiping it up so should see the bottom. And vice versa. C'est nes pas?
