I was just reading an article about Windows 7 being touch screen compatible and the expected influx of touch screen computers hitting the market.
Does anyone have any expectations on new multi-touch orientated browsers and how to accommodate this new functionality when designing new websites?
Will things change or do we carry on as normal?

I don't thinks will change that much - the touch interface developers are likely to use the same interaction you see from a mouse, but with multi-gestures.
MacBooks are using this in their track pads now (I am as I write this). Depending on the number of finger tips in contact with the pad, determines the function.
I think we are way off seeing browser support for the additional functionality that this might afford.
More likely the OS will define them first.

I was thinking that with the introduction of touch screens etc more attention may need to be paid to site navigation, i.s. bigger buttons!
I guess I can see user experience rules changing.
