Use mouse gestures in Mozilla Web Browsers
This may be one of the harder-to-describe hints I've ever posted, but it's quite cool. If you use Mozilla, you should try using it with mouse gestures. What's a mouse gesture? Imagine moving between tabbed Mozilla windows with a quick drag down-up-left (or -right). Or jumping to your home page by sketching a tiny 'h' with the mouse. Or creating a new tab with a down-up-left-right motion. Sound interesting? It is!

Visit the Mouse Gestures home page for complete information on the shortcuts, and if it sounds like something you'd like to try, follow the simple one-click procedure on their installation page.

It took me a while to get used to using mouse gestures (kind of like learning to use a Palm Pilot), but once I did, they became second nature. They may not be for everyone, but they are an interesting study in interface design.

This is great! Specially on my iBook with limited screen realestate - I can get rid of all the toolbars and just use mouse gestures to do everything.

Note: Install the Latest Version because with the other one, the prefs panel won't appear.
