Hi Paul, I sent this to your support email address a few months ago, but I never got a response. I decided to copy and paste it in here.

I've been a big fan and avid user of MileWideBack for years, so when I discovered that you'd come up with an enhanced version of it, I was quite impressed by how powerful you'd made it. EdgeWise is definitely a winner, and I hope more and more people discover it and use it!

I have some suggestions/requests, the first four of which I've already been able to incorporate into my copy of the add-on with some quick and easy tweaks/additions:

1) Reduce width to 1px. The second pixel is really unnecessary when you know users will swipe the cursors to the left limit of the screen anyway.
2) Make background-color: black (or maybe give the user the option to choose its color). The line this addon creates on the left of the screen can be very distracting, especially when browsing on sites with dark backgrounds. Black is the perfect camouflage.
3) Add undoCloseTab(), window.restore, and window.close ewa's (EdgeWise actions). I was surprised to find that you did all the work to incorporate the closed tabs history menu, but didn't to give users the option to simply reopen the last closed tab! I also think people might like to restore or close their windows using EdgeWise, even if the close button is easily accessible on the top right. There is also simple code you could use to add a Restart ewa.
4) Convert other ewa's from MWB that you didn't include in EW (see http://dragtotab.mozdev.org/milewideback/customization.html). I'm sure people would love to toggle the sidebar using this add-on.

This last suggestion may be a bit more intensive to incorporate and code:
5) Initiate Long-Press actions onMouseDown after the allotted time, rather than wait for onMouseUp. This one might be trickier, but I think you can do it (though I haven't figured it out yet, haha). I'd love to see this work, as it could act a lot like the Back and Forward buttons, where the History menu appears after holding the mouse down for a second or two, without having to release the click.

I hope these suggestions are helpful and productive. Cheers to a great add-on!

Tim,
Sorry, but I was not aware of your original email.
Thanks for the suggestions, I will of course consider them.

Very nice, powerful, useful, smart and tiny addon! Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

The 2.03 version is perfect!
In general the addon saves a lot of attention by minimizing hand-eye coordination. Finally this provides the comfortable web surfing with pleasure.
I have one additional proposal for future:
Is it possible to relate to the left edge as two "halves" - upper and lower?
The Settings mechanisme allows different sets of actions.
So, if it is possible to assign different sets for upper and lower edge halves, user can get twice actions.
End differentiation between upper and lower halves can be done by event.clientY (taking Zoom in consideration)
