Firefox 3: Now With Multi-Touch

Do you own one of those fanciful new MacBooks? You know, the ones with the cool multi-touch trackpads? Do you envy Safari users that can take advantage of multi-finger scrolling, pinching and squeezing in their web browsing? If so, you might be a perfect candidate for the new Firefox 3.2b2 beta.

Since October, Mozilla has been releasing preliminary builds of Firefox that allow you to use the gestures that are common among the Safari browsers out there; however, they’ve added some special gestures that are unique to Firefox. Some of these 3-finger gestures include:

  • Swipe left/right to move backward/forward through browsing history
  • Swipe Up/Down to move to top/bottom of web page
  • Pinch in/out to make the text larger or smaller
  • Twist left/right to move between open tabs

If you want to get your hands on the newest beta of FireFox, then head over to the Firefox 3 beta download website. There’s still now word on the final release of Firefox 3.1 which touch support expected.
