One thing I love most about Maxthon  is the integrated capability to handle mouse gestures. Mouse gestures are simple symbols that you "draw" on your screen using your mouse. When you perform a mouse gesture that can be recognised, the according associated action will be performed.

Once you get used to mouse gestures, you find yourself trying to use them everywhere even if the application does not support them. It is pretty addictive.

The missing mouse gesture recognization was the first thing that struck me when using the new beta of IE7.

A quick search revealed a nifty little tool called StrokeIt.

With the help of StrokeIt you can define mouse gestures for every application.

I added another stroke command since I like to search for highlighted text with a simple mouse gesture.

Search with stroke it

The command is nothing more than a combination of keyboard shortcuts.

I have to admit that that this solution is far from perfect. Thus if anyone has better solution please drop a comment !

StrokeIt is free for individual and not-for-profit charitable entity use.
If you are missing mouse gestures in IE7 or in general give StrokeIt a try.
