There are many times I have swiped across the bottom bar when in the browser and wondered why it hasn't gone back a page. Then I remember it doesn't have that gesture.
So yes, I would like that feature to be added there.UberCurrency - Free currency conversion app for PlayBook.

Agree with you both. I constantly find myself back-swiping in native apps followed by a quick 'Doh!' and then wishing I could do it in any app. This would be a great feature in the OS in general!"Ultimately, your state of mind determines your circumstances.

Re: Android back swipe
If I had remembered to do it, I would have beaten you to this post a month ago. Glad someone said it. Agreed. The angled swipe that replaces android back button has proven useful and could have cleared up space in apps with a big ugly back button. Browser could have used it too. Maybe a forward swipe? This honestly should have been a native gesture. Funny they didn't think of it until they decided to port android apps and needed a solution. Anybody know if it exists in BB10?

I've mentioned this in a couple of threads, it's really a no-brainer gesture! I tried Dolphin Browser simply because it has customizable gestures, and I thought it would be the next best thing.... it wasn't worth it though.
I'm so used to using mouse gestures on Firefox, that I really have a hard time wrapping my mind around having to hit a 'back' button when surfing around on any device! lol
