Mac trackpad integration

Posted

The main reason to use a mac in my opinion is the macros with the trackpad, the way it opens up so many possibilities when it comes to making things in Blender and Photoshop. How you can seamlessly switch between screens, look at a reference and zoom in on that too with just a stroke of the trackpad.

There is little to no trackpad integration like there is in safari or chrome, and i was wondering if that would ever be a thing you would implement. I like firefox but i feel its the worst part of using it on a mac.

I'll need more information -- what version of MacOS, and what version of Firefox are you running?

This isn't exactly what i meant but it works for now, thanks a lot.

That said i would really hope to have more integration because how it works in the other browsers is that it dosn't actually zoom in the browser itself, its more of a magnifying glass that dosn't mess with the CSS of websites, and rather just let you take a closer look.
