I was looking at http://www.apple.com/macosx/whats-new/gestures.html and I notices these changes:

The right one:

Switch between full-screen apps
Click the top-right corner of a window to make an app full screen. Then swipe three fingers to see another full-screen app.

Q: How does this work in full screen Safari, since it uses three-finger-swipe left/right to show the previous and next page? And does it still work as navigation when you're not in full screen?

The right one:

Tap to zoom
Want to get a closer look at a website? Just double-tap the trackpad with two fingers to quickly magnify the page.

Q: When you have "Tap to Click" setup for the trackpad, how does this work? Currently you can double tap (and thus click) to select text or whatever. Does this still work somehow, or do you need to physically double click to select something?

1. I think it's two fingers for previous and next page now.

Oh, right, that was the next picture :D Didn't see that. How about two-finger scrolling from left-to-right? Or does it detect the difference between scrolling and a swipe.

It scrolls until you reach the end, further gesture makes it go forward/back.
