EdgeWise

Author(s):



The EdgeWise Firefox extension (an enhanced MileWideBack) advances browsing by creating an ergonomically superior environment which is physically fast and easy to use, whereby the entire left margin of the Firefox viewport (the area which displays web content) becomes a "Click-Field" which can be utilized without even looking.
Legacy
"EdgeWise" is applicable to Firefox versions prior to 57, and will no longer be updated.

Web Extensions
Users upgrading to Firefox version 57 (and above) must install the
EdgeWare addon for similar functionality and continued support.


The EdgeWise Actions within the Click-Field allow mouse (or other pointing device) clicks and wheel scrolls to execute specific actions which are grouped in Tab-specific, multiple, nameable, configurations.

The configurations provide single-, double-, long-, and serial-click support, along with wheel scroll support, and can easily be customized via simple drag & drop selections.

Available Actions allow you to quickly and easily perform many functions with minimal hand-eye coordination.
Also, in addition to Actions assigned to mouse-clicks and wheel-scrolls, you can access all of the Actions for immediate execution by ShiftKey + Left-Click (in the Click-Field).
