    One of the major inconveniences I have with my Pre is not being able to open a link in a new card. I know that the new update will make this possible, but I don't like to have my keyboard open when I browse the web most of the time. Pressing the orange button isn't my favorite either, sometimes it ends up a z but it is most often very tedious.

    I would like to be able to use the gesture area for some functionality. Holding either the left or the right side could open a link in a new card, download or open a file. Would it be possible to tweak webOS or create a preferences app to achieve this?

    I just found out that there was a thread on this subject in June but the last post wasn't replied to.
    Is it possible?

    If you're trying to open a card, and not a link on the page, can't you just keep Web on the quick launcher and open a new card with that?

    I think he's saying that he would rather open links in a new card by pressing 'gesturearea + link' instead of 'orange + link'

    I agree that using the gesture bar would make more sense... Especiallly since ppl ike to surf the web in landscape mode...

    Currently, I browse the web with the keyboard open, due to the very cool "page up/down" and "go to top/bottom" buttons after installing the browser tweaks. I hope they'll still be available - and with the added "orange + link" ability, browsing will be downright perfect!

    Sooo... Would it be possible to open the "right click" menu in the browser by touching one of the gesture areas and pressing a link or picture? Perhaps a QuickInstall patch?
