Boost your tools, boost yourself

We all have already get used to the picture of several generations of people interacting together every day with the current technologies that surround us. Some of them were born before this utopian-styled boom of automatization, robotics and comfort, while the others were born and raised by these new technologies. The implications and ramifications of that fact, lead us to a very specific paradigm: The conclusion that hardware items like a screen, a keyboard or a mouse, for example, could be easily conceptualized as replaceable-extensions for our bodies.

That sounds crazy right? But, never has a crazy idea been this close to reality. So, you better start thinking about your digital and electronic extensions now, in order to upgrade yourself! The first logical step here would be to upgrade your mouse's capabilities and, in case you are wondering how to do that, we have just one word for you: CrxMouse.

In the Cyborg's path

Yeah, we know that you have always dreamed about being more than human, even though you didn't know about it until now. I mean, who wouldn't want to be mechanical-enhanced human being?  

Alright, being serious now, you won't become one right now but CrxMouse will surely be a start point. This amazing upgrade for Google Chrome, that has come to us in the form of an extension for the navigator, will boost by a thousand your browsing experience with some smart mouse navigation shortcuts, Mouse Gestures, Super Drag, Wheel Gestures and Rocker Gestures.

Those were some long and confusing words. But, what you should know is that a mouse gesture is a way of combining mouse movements and clicks that might be recognized as a deliberate navigation command. In consequence, your browser will respond to your customized mouse gestures offering you the personalized experience you deserve.

In other words, simple things like a click and hold with your mouse button will allow you to navigate between pages, close and open tabs or reopen closed ones, refresh, and many more advanced stuff bringing in the end the full potential of the power of the Chrome browser to your fingertips, increasing your productivity.

The future has arrived a while ago

Technology is the future in regards to everything that has something to do with your work life, and also with everything related to your personal and private life. That is just a fact and learning about how to use it with efficiency will be the key in order to take advantage of one's capabilities to survive out there, and to stand out from the rest.

So, you don't want to lose that train, because CrxMouse is not only powerful making navigation a lot easier, but it also involves some fun by making you do things in a different way, introducing navigation based on gestures.

Thumbs up

Diving deeper into this fantastic tool, we can flag some popular features inherent to the intuitive and easy-to-remember mouse gestures, like:

  • Full browsing control at all time;
  • Big number of customizable options; 
  • Out-of-the-box customizable scrolling options;
  • Efficient back and forward navigation;
  • Enhanced-text-copy with super drag (allowing you to select text and drag out only what you selected);
  • Really easy zooming and screenshot features;

Thumbs not-that-up

Some people might not be very happy by the fact that by installing this extension you are helping Chrome to collect non-identifiable aggregated information, as it's explained in detail within Chrome's web store and the developer's website. The thing is that in order to identify the best gestures so that the tool can be improved, it sounds logical for it to collect anonymized browsing data, always greatly caring about the user's privacy.

Back to the future

There is no denying the fact that CrxMouse significantly facilitates, boosts and improves the overall experience of the use of the computer and mouse. The whole set is pretty neat and the instructions provided are self-explanatory, so, just within a few minutes of adaptation you can begin the work. Finally, the fact that the developers came up with the solution of blending a popular browser with a powerful tool using their own extension platform was just amazing. If you want to get back to the future, and stay there for what is bound to come... What are you waiting for? Just try this extension right now!
