Hi,

I really like the back and forth gesture to navigate between websites but I am wondering why I can't use it outside of Safari?

What about using it in Finder to go back to the previous folder or in Settings to go back to the main screen? There are so many occasions where I would really love to use it.

Hello, select at the trackpad, more gesture: see the picture (in german)
first selection point: 2 or 3 finger up

Now you can navigate with 2 or 3 fingers back or previous at the safari
and in finder you must use 3 fingers.

If you're using a magic mouse, you can still use Finder gestures for back and forth with one finger by holding down the option key and swiping.

Thanks I didn't know that. Only problem is if I use your option I can't use the option "Move with 3 fingers" and this is very important for me as it helps tremendously with my workflow.
I wonder, however, why Apple won't allow the 2 finger gesture outside Safari.

They do... works fine in Chrome, for example. Just not in Finder. Probably because Apple doesn't give a crap about Finder except once every 5 years when it gets an overhaul.
