BriskBard has many interesting new features in this version and besides the transition to 64 bit, it now includes mouse gestures that can be linked to the browser actions.
To test this new feature you only have to check the “Allow gestures” box in the “Gestures” tab inside the web browser configuration window and press the “Ok” button.
BriskBard has two preconfigured gestures to go back or forward, and you only need to press the “control” key while you move the mouse to the left to navigate to the previous page. Once there you can go forward pressing the “control” key while moving the mouse to the right.
Another new BriskBard feature is the quick “user agent” selector for each web browser tab.
There’s also a new configuration window where you can select the user agent that will be used dynamically whenever you navigate to a domain.
With these new features you’ll be able to navigate to those pages that are only designed for a reduced number of web browsers, causing issues and giving false warnings when you try to use an alternative web browser like BriskBard.
If you decide to anchor the BriskBard icon in the Windows taskbar you'll see that this version added multiple tasks to open BriskBard with the tab you need.
