Smooth gestures is a Chrome extension that lets you navigate your browser using mouse gestures executed by holding down the right-click button. The extension doesn’t just come with a bunch of basic predefined gestures, you can add or edit them as per your liking and ease.

All mouse gestures appear as a red line on your browser; to use any one of them visit the extension’s options and see which gestures do what. Any of the predefined gestures can be deleted or edited. Some basic gestures include going backward or forward one page in the current tab, closing a tab, opening a new tab, opening a link in a new tab, or moving to the previous tab.
