Needs work. - Good idea, but the genstures are way too sensitive. Needs the ability to customize and assign gestures and turn off commands that you don't need. For example I don't want a gesture for 'close tab' ever.

Needs Update for Mavericks - Officially the application supports Mavericks, but I have near constant issues with it not working properly. I can close the app, re-open and everything is fine for some period of time. It happens most often after I resume from sleep that I have to force close the app and re-open to get it working. So before I wrote this review I have tried to contact the developer a number of times on Twitter and via Email and have not received an answer via either channel. Obviously, the application hasn’t been updated since 2011 so I’m thinking that the developer has quit working on it.. Honestly… I wouldn’t buy it until there is an update to properly support Mavericks.

Excellent, but missing "Undo close tab" gesture - Would be a perfect 5 stars if there was a gesture to undo closing a tab. Pleasure to use otherwise; simple and efficient.
