Lazy Click 0.8.2.1-signed
by Tamas Marki
Fixes missed clicks by applying them to the closest clickable object (link, button). This is especially useful on touchscreen displays, where it can be challenging to hit a smaller link or button with your finger.
About this Add-on
Sometimes you don't want to get out your stylus or zoom in the page just to click a link. Tapping on the screen might actually apply the click to the wrong portion of the page, a few pixels away from the real target, because of the inherent imprecision of the fingertip when used on touchscreen surfaces.
LazyClick can catch these clicks, and scan the surrounding area for potential targets. If it finds one, it applies to the click to that element, saving the potentially wasted click and some frustration for the user.
Known to not work on some Ajax-enabled elements, especially menu headings (for example the More link on the Google home page).
If you notice it takes too long to scan try reducing the range in the settings (might happen on slower phones).
