Just been browsing OS X Daily (http://osxdaily.com/) and I came across this cool gesture that's kind of "hidden" in Lion.

It allows you to instantly jump to the most recently used space with a four finger tap (it's a four finger double tap on my machine but whatever...)

Open terminal and insert:

defaults write com.apple.dock double-tap-jump-back -bool TRUE;killall Dock

and hit enter and you're done!

To disable it, insert this into the terminal and hit enter:

defaults delete com.apple.dock double-tap-jump-back;killall Dock

Enjoy :)

I have discovered a new hand gesture that I give my trackpad ;-)
