Add more support for mouse activities

It would be nice if we could support some of the mouse wheel activities users may be used to in other applications from within our Jade Smart Thin Client™ applications, including but not limited to the following examples:

Mouse wheel events
For example, we may allow user to zoom in/out by holding the Ctrl key and using the mouse wheel

Left/Right 'presses' on mouse wheel
For example, a number of tabbed applications such as Web browsers allow you to cycle through the open tabs by pressing the mouse wheel to the left/right respectively - on mice which support this action on the mouse wheel.

Gesture support
For mice which have a touch surface, it would be nice to support multi-finger gestures in apps where this make sense, such as pinch zooming, multi-finger swipes and other gestures, etc.

    Brilliant idea. Is it also possible to customise activities for mice that have additional buttons. Do the horizontal scroll wheels on the mouse work in Jade?

    Asking for more feedback on this one; we are especially interested in understanding how end users are impacted by lack of touch screen and mouse functionality and which capabilities are most important -- this will help with design and prioritization. The JADE devs will post some specific questions for feedback.
