    Even in 2014, we're still seeing vast differences in how browsers handle events .

    This is a difference in how the different browsers handle the long press and convert it to 'mouse' events. Ideally, this should instead be handled by listening for the long press in your widgets and showing the context menu when it happens - we'll be adding optional support for this sort of thing in GXT 4, but it won't be turned on by default, since a long press isn't necessarily the same thing as a right click.
