I have no doubt that the weakest link in the chain of tools that i use is by far the user. Suboptimal at so many levels: define complicated shortcuts that are never used, or do the same thing all over again without bothering to define a shortcut, etc
This is a poor video, but the Intellij featue is quite cool. It keeps pestering you "hey, youve used the 'settings' menu 19 times, did you know u can just press F4?". You probably don't want to just to user behavior analysis right off the bat, but I think one (like me for example) can achieve quite an improvement by being trained, and inforcing discipline.

Out of curiosity, im tracking my actions with to see what it looks like, but, even basic reinforcements like "hey, you've been using an average of 1 gesture per hour, what's wrong?", or "you've pressed this combo 1391 time this month in Chrome, maybe you want to think of a shortcut"?".
This should be low hanging fruits, without too muhc complex analysys.

I suppose it shoiuld be possible with dev, to be able to say "you've been using "File > New" menu in Word, maybe you want to define a gesture?
Other ideas requing some moderate dev, would be to say "youve clicked 1230 times in this 50x50 pixel squate, that's a real hotspot, shouldn't you use some shortcut?'.

Then, if you would track the user movements, and try to actually identify usage patterns. or shapes or anything "macroable", and suggest a gesture to replace it...
What do you guys think?
