Keyboard friendly navigation.
Using this extension, rimwheel, you can use various navigation functions by rolling the mouse wheel. The functions of the wheel varies according to the mouse cursor position in the document view area.
The view area is split to 9 areas; 4 corners, 4 rims, and 1 center:
(No red lines are shown really.)
And functions are varies where the cursor is in which of these area:
|Upper Left corner||Stop||Reload|
|Upper rim||Switch Tab Left||Switch Tab Right|
|Upper Right corner||Close Tab (not Window)||New Tab|
|Left rim||Back in History||Forward in History|
|Center||Scroll Up||Scroll Down|
|Right rim||Scroll Up a Page||Scroll Down a Page|

Any of the areas can be disabled in the preferences.
View or edit the functions by clicking the corresponding button in the 'Function' box
To invoke these functions, no clicking, no dragging, or no holding are required, just roll the wheel after positioning the mouse. It's easy for me, and perhaps for you.
