Switching New Editmodes

Is there a button to quickly toggle through the different editting modes, edge, vertex and face? I see alt+tab brings up a little menu, but you have to click on it with the mouse, or use the arrow keys and push enter. I would like it better if it toggled. Just my opinion.

Also, does anyone out there really use Blender’s mouse gestures? Is there somewhere that explains them. I have most of them figured out, but it would be nice to see all of them, and to see exactly what mouse gestures it wants.

You can press “1”, “2” or “3” after “ctrl+tab”.
