Marking Menu for Google Chrome™


Marking Menu empowers you to surf the web with pen flicks or mouse gestures. It’s a must-have extension if you have a Wacom tablet, but works great with a mouse or trackpad too!

Out-of-the-box, you can:

– create and destroy tabs,
– travel forward and backward through your history,
– move between tabs, and
– fling the page up or down.

You can also extend Marking Menu to support other actions!

Bring up the menu by holding the right mouse button. Then, move towards the appropriate icon, and release. If you are hovering over a link, the menu won’t appear right away (in case you are trying to click a link), but will react appropriately if you flick.

If you’d prefer to use the middle mouse button instead, just make that change in the preferences. Simply browse to chrome:extensions and click the Options button next to Marking Menu for Google Chrome.

Change history:

– Finally fixed scrolling and back/forward compatibility in newer versions of Chrome.

– A marking menu can sometimes be called radial menu or pie menu. No matter what you call it, Chrome Marking Menu is what you’re looking for.

– I’ve finally released the source code. It’s no more ready for this now than it was when I started in 2009, but since I don’t commit new changes very frequently anymore, I figured there’s no sense it putting it off any longer:
