Stroke It: system wide mouse gestures for Windows

What is StrokeIt?

StrokeIt is an advanced mouse gesture recognition engine and command processor. What is a mouse gesture? Mouse gestures are simple symbols that you "draw" on your screen using your mouse. When you perform a mouse gesture that StrokeIt can recognize, it will perform the "action" associated with that gesture. In short, it's a nifty little program that lets you easily control programs by drawing symbols with your mouse.

What can it do?

StrokeIt can currently recognize more than 80 unique mouse gestures and can be easily trained to recognize many more. For each gesture recognized, StrokeIt can execute a user-defined set of commands within the active application. StrokeIt commands are defined within plugin libraries that can be easily created by third parties to do nearly anything.
This program is awesome! It lets you navigate any program, even Explorer, with mouse gestures. I've been wishing something like this was out there for a while now. It was always annoying to have mouse gesture in my browser, but not Windows. I've been using this for a few hours, and I already love it; it's definitely on my list of standards apps to install.

The only thing I noticed was, if you use mouse gestures in Firefox, or Opera, it's best to disable those programs inside Stroke It. I also turned off the annoying color trail.
