Publisher's Description

StrokeIt is an advanced mouse gesture recognition engine and command processor. Basically, it's a nifty little program that lets you control programs by drawing symbols with your mouse. It can currently recognize more than 50 unique mouse gestures and can be easily trained to recognize many more. For each gesture recognized, it can execute a user-defined set of commands within the active application. It commands are defined within plugin libraries that can be easily created by third parties to do virtually anything.

OMG, I forgot about this little gem. I'm using chrome on win7 RC and really miss gestures, nothing fancy; back, fwd, close tab. This will make life a bit better.

Stroke-it- simple smart smallest program can't live without it. it is highly configurable can be used with all programs. using it for 2yrs. I wish programs like stroke it, taskbar shuffle should come as default with Windows.

A great, cant-live-without-it program!!! People rave about gestures in browsers, but StrokeIt allows gestures in pretty much any program.

Everyone should use this. Small, lightweight and bug free as far as I can see.

Great program, does its job efficiently and very small (100k download.. and ~1M memory usage)

Definitely a keeper, and just sorry about not having found out about it earlier.

An AMAZING program - it adds incredible functionality to all programs with great customisability. Mouse gestures, once you invest time to set them up, are the biggest revolution IMO in the UI some time.

This thing has a working set memory use of around 200kB!!!!!!!!! Tight and efficient coding if ever you'll see it...

Imagine using a foreign pc, and pressing the right mouse-button to make a gesture. i allways miss this little program, saves me so much time. using gestures became as common as the "strg+alt+entf" command on windows :-P

> a must have!

...Sensiva...(alias Symbol Commander)...
Maybe StrokeIt is free (Sensiva v1.52 is free too...)...but i dont like it for the moment...to difficult to configure...with Sensiva i'm able to make really complicated Operations (Showing Folder ordered by Date and using Group...for example).

They have a lot to do before being able to be compared to Symbol Commander. Whats good is: the "Disabled App"
But i really would like to be able to make as far as 4 or 5 combinations of Hotkey easily.

I will follow this app...according to me : not ready.

Still Keep Sensiva v1.52.

It's freeware but you *are* allowed to pay for it, which I did. It simply saves me so much time and is so incredibly convenient! And you can make gestures for nearly ANYTHING you'd want. Essential utility!
