    I'm still on my PC (waiting for book to come..) and use Opera as my browser. The idea of mouse gestures is awesome, and I've learned to hate going on another computer and browsing without them. Are there any programs that allow you to do this throughout applications in OSX?

    Cocoa Gestures:

    http://www.bitart.com/CocoaGestures.html

    It's free and incredibly easy to set up, or you can get a $30 version with a bunch more features.

    The free version does everything I need, and is the single most time-saving piece of software I've ever installed on my computer. I can't believe more people don't use gesture software--it saves a mind-blowing amount of time web browsing.

    One limitation: those pieces of software will only work with cocoa applications (its a programming language that most new MacOSX programs use). As far as web browsers go, that means either Camino (a light Mozilla-based browser) or Apple's great Safari. It won't work with Opera, but then Opera on the Mac is horrible and absolutely noone uses it, so you wouldn't want to either.
