Mouse Gestures — have you ever used them? Well now is your chance. mozdev.org hosts not one but two excellent gestures projects. The first, Optimoz Mouse Gestures, is featured in this report. Second is easyGestures for Firefox, in focus as mozdev Featured Project at the moment. Be sure to check it out.
LookAhead — v0.1
(Uses Google web service to fetch URLs in multiple tabs)
This is my initial report, so it might not be top-notch...
Although my project is new, I have worked on and off on it for over 4 months.
Dictionary Search — v0.5.1
(Looks up or translates words in a Web page or an email using an online dictionary)
Dictionary Search 0.5.1 has been released on the 17th of March. It fixes the fact that the help dialog wasn't shown in version 0.5.
(The "many applications in one" bar)
The content of the sidebar has been updated as well as a few bug fixes. A new version of the in-build HTML editor is also expected with some new features.
We are also looking for articles for the sidebar. If you can contribute, are interested in translating the sidebar or have a project you think deserves credit email me at MozillaMan AT linuxmail DOT org.
Mouse Gestures — v0.4preview 2004-04-16
(Elegantly control your browser by drawing gestures)
The Optimoz team has released a new nightly build of its popular Mouse Gestures extension for Mozilla 1.x/Firefox.

Our gesture sharing page continues to grow. Browse Gesture Exchange to import gesture mappings other users provided, or post your own custom functions there.

DownloadWith is an extension for both Mozilla and Firefox that allows you to use third party download managers like Getright, Leechget, and Download Accelerator.
