thumbs.js is a JavaScript library which acts as a polyfill for browsers which do not support touch events.  thumbs.js is very small and is transparently loaded and applied to your browser.  It is a syntax-less JavaScript library.

thumbs.js’ main uses are to add touch-support to browsers/devices which do not support touch events.  It also comes in handy for desktop debugging of touch-driven actions in  your application.  thumbs.js is designed to play nicely with PhoneGap and the mobile web.
