Hi there,

to me it feels almost natural to swipe left/right (from the middle) to get back and forward to previously opened webpages. So far you have to scroll up, wait for the button bar and tap the left or right arrow. What are your thoughts?

If zoomed in, how to pan the page in horizontal direction if swipes are assigned to "back" and "forward"? Would it be too difficult to navigate inside a page? Or did I understood your idea wrong?

Hm…you got a point there 8) Maybe scrolling with two fingers then?

I won't require two fingers for that. But I agree that navigation buttons could be more easily accessible, just don't know how to do it..

Perhaps provide options for two-finger swipe, quick flick, button...
