Google Chrome team working on multi-touch gestures
Google has released a new developer build of Chrome that fixes some of the browser navigation gestures that were disrupted with the release of Lion. On pre-Lion systems, a three-finger swipe inside of Chrome would move the user a page forwards or backwards in their web browsing history. Under Lion however, that same three-finger swipe is a system-wide gesture that moves users between different full-screen apps.
The newest developer build of Chrome for Mac, version 14.0.835.0, fixes the gesture confusion. Now in Chrome users will use a two-finger swipe to move a page forwards or backwards in their web browsing history. This adheres to Lions built-in gestures, leaving the three-finger swipe for full-screen app switching. No word yet on an exact release date for this next version of Chrome, but Cnet thinks it will be at least a few weeks until it's rolled out to all users.
