    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:

  Wheel-UP Wheel-DOWN
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
Lower Left corner Beginning of history End of history
Lower rim Scroll Left Scroll Right
Lower Right corner Scroll to Top Scroll to Bottom

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.
