I just had this idea when I was reading another thread and saw a screenshot of the browser: Instead of buttons on the bottom of the standard browser, it might be useful to entirely replace it with a pulley menu that works in a horizontal manner, more like a ribbon. The BACK and FORWARD arrows would be hidden at the very end of each side. The rest of functions would be placed on the left and right of the center position which could be blank or still keep a user definable button (ie. Tabs). Taking gestures a step further.

Could be nice, but I understand this would need some real life experience first to find out whether it's good or not.

For sure, this could be implemented into any app which uses such kind of a menu at the bottom.

totally agree. although i wouldn' get rid of the bottom menu totally (sometimes its useful). but definatelly would like to see forward/backward implementatio either by swipes or pulley menus.

It would save quite a lot of space for the content, especially in landscape mode. A possibility that would suit me would be to pull up the menu and directly swipe to the fwd/bck button.
