Convert NodeList to Array
Now that most browsers have implemented querySelectorAll, the native selectorEngine, many framework-dependent developers are getting a rude awakening when dealing with the result of QSA calls: the NodeList object. NodeLists are array-like but don't feature many of the methods provided by the Array, like
var nodesArray = Array.prototype.slice.call(document.querySelectorAll("div"));
The result of the code above is a true Array object containing all of the nodes returned by the QSA. You could even make the code shorter with this alternative:
var nodesArray = .slice.call(document.querySelectorAll("div"));
Both snippets will give you an Array for which you can iterate over and do all those other awesome array things!

Options of the class include:

Zohaib Sibt-e-Hassan recently released a great mouse gestures library for MooTools called Moousture. Moousture allows you to trigger functionality by moving your mouse in specified custom patterns. Too illustrate Moousture's value, I've created an image download builder using Mooustures and PHP.
