Allows you to quickly navigate your browser history and to switch between tabs by clicking on the left edge of your screen/window.
What is Mile Wide Back?
'Mile Wide Back' is an Edge extension that converts your browser's left edge into a multi-purpose button for easy navigation. It includes features for moving forward or backward in your history, closing the current tab, cycling through tabs, and creating a new tab. Designed using Fitt's Law, it guarantees ease of usage and speed, requiring only a single click for each action. With this extension, clumsiness is out of the question - even when your window is maximized.
Turns the left edge of your browser window into a multi-purpose button for controlling your browser and navigating your tabs.
- Left click to navigate back
- Right click to navigate forward
- Middle click to close the current tab
- Rotate the mouse wheel to cycle through your tabs
- Left and right click at the same time to create a new tab
Using Fitt's Law, you can fling your wrist to the left of the screen without accuracy or coordination to reach the multi-purpose button. You could even do this blind-folded.
Your window needs to be maximized to work.
Unlike typical mouse gestures extensions, this extension is more intuitive and faster to operate because it only requires one click. It does not require coordination between two fingers. It also does not require performing the drag and drop gesture, which requires two actions to be performed at the same time.
Mile Wide Back is risky to use as it requires a number of sensitive permissions that can potentially harm your browser and steal your data. Exercise caution when installing this add-on. Review carefully before installing. We recommend that you only install Mile Wide Back if you trust the publisher.
Mile Wide Back has earned a fairly good reputation and likely can be trusted.
