This extension provides "rocker navigation gestures" for Chrome; versions and later now work with Gmail!

PLEASE READ: Any tabs opened before installing this extension must be reloaded before rocker gestures become available in them. For full functionality, this plugin changes Chrome's "default newtab" page; if this is unacceptable, please install the alternate version. See below for details.

The idea was taken from an implementation by "Billiam" that had one drawback I found unacceptable:

1 - Proper clicking order. In other versions, the second button had to be clicked while the first was held down; this is counter to the "standard" rocker gestures, which use a "flick of the wrist" motion where the first button pressed is the first released

Good extension, but any PDF appears as black page with it.

Not working at all in 46.0.2490.* , though other rocker-gesture extensions aren't working here either. Someone please help!
