Mouse gestures are not something new in many variations of Google Chrome (those developed based on Chromium). If you want to enjoy the great convenience of mouse gestures on your Chrome-based browser, you have to install some third-party extensions, and CrxMouse is one of them. After installing this plug-in, users can set corresponding mouse gestures according to their preferences, then complete many regular web page operations completely through mouse actions.

CrxMouse (full name: CrxMouse Chrome Gestures) is a very popular and extremely practical function enhancement plug-in for Google Chrome web browser. It’s dedicated to achieve various web page operations through mouse only, so as to fully exploit the full potential of mouse in a Chrome browser. We can use it to get the most out of all the mouse operations in Chrome, including mouse gestures, super drag & drop, scroll gestures, rocker gestures, smooth scrolling, tags list, etc.

Do ever not discount mouse gestures this small function extension brought to Chrome. Because it makes using Chrome significantly more efficient, and brings us with better usage experience. Finally, please note that – although CrxMouse is so powerful and popular, AppNee doesn’t add an “Editors’ Choice” tag to it. That’s because we always prefer simpler and more specific alternative solutions like miniGestures.
