We have two unique ideas on how to make a gestural web browsing interface, so we should try both here and see what we like, or go out and test both options to get some data. 

Option 1:
* One finger swipe left and right to go forward and back, respectively
* One finger pull down and release to refresh

Option 2:
* One finger flick down to go back
* One finger long pull down and release to refresh
* One finger drag down on header to reveal entire stack
* One finger flick up from bottom bezel to go forward

The webview already uses one finger swipes to scroll and one finger long tap for text and link selection.

How do we combine that with our own?

I talked to Stefan, it sounds like to do this with gestures, this will require a fair amount of refactoring the app. 

In the mean time, we desperately need some kind of basic navigation controls in the UI, so I propose adding back and forward buttons in the header, until we get gesture-based navigation to a place where we are happy with it: http://cl.ly/1c0h2P3R3u330x1G0T1j
Removing this bug from M3 for now until we have A Plan.
