    Do you want them or not?

    After much demand on IRC to me about them I'm making a poll to convince Gary to add them. I don't use em, but what's more options!?

    YES! This would be an excellent addition! As long as they are optional, why wouldn't we want them in xScope? It's a no brainer.

    Yes if they're implemented correctly! If you're talking about Dolphin Browser's gestures then no, please don't emulate that I don't like having to pull up a window just to do a gesture when I could easy just press a button :(

    trying to do a gesture on a webpage without a pull up window wouldn't work very well.... think about being on a page and moving your finger around on it... what does that do? MOVES YOUR LOCATION OF PAGE!!

    This is true, but I'm telling you dolphin's implementation does not work very well. Find a creative way to do it (not necessarily getting rid of the gesture window) and it'll be a great feature. Just like xscope's pin wheel zoom, and long press to open a new window feature.

    Also I'm wondering if there us a way to have a small area that you swipe over to invoke the gesture command to tell xscope that your doing a gesture. That way no tapping to get a window is involved. Just start in a particular place and immediately continue doing the gesture. Kinda like how swype is able to identify what your are trying to type.

    Less clutter and it's faster, i don't have to think about wanting to do a gesture, I just do it. The flow of browsing is un interrupted. Whether this is possible our not I don't know but I'm hoping for a creative solution.
