We have written about several other system-wide mouse gesture applications, but I know there are quite a few of you who haven’t found one that can rival the functionality of StrokeIt. This is a classic mouse gesture application that has been around for almost 8-years, and in February 2005 it looked like development on it had come to a halt.

Well, it’s back! The StrokeIt homepage broke the news last week that version 0.9.6 can run on Windows 95 all the way through Windows 7. Plus a new portable mode has been added so that you can take the app with you where ever you go. All this, and it’s still free.

Visually nothing has really changed, but if you look close enough you’ll see that Google Chrome and Safari have been added to the list of apps it includes gestures for out-of-the-box:

  1. If you’re looking for a similar tool on OS X, try xGestures.

  2. Wow! stokeit is back.

    i will have a try

    :( I bought mgWindow for my laptop, :lol:works fine on the touchpad, just use my middle finger to control my laptop.

  3. Fantastic, the best utility is back. I’ve had to put up with a version that didn’t get on with Vista for the last 2 years but it was worth the hassle because this app is so powerful and a joy to use. Get 0.97 (beta) for full bug-free performance on Vista

  4. gMote has been doing this on Vista for years… [handform.net]
