Back/Forward Gesture not working in Google Chrome?

Well, in Safari on Lion, if you swipe to fingers left and right, you go back/forth a page with a cool animation that shows the previous pages. Well, I just downloaded Google Chrome and it doesn't seem to be working. Has anyone else gotten this to work? I prefer Google Chrome as my browser in Mac OS X and it would be awful if I couldn't do the cool animation/gesture in Google Chrome, while I can in Safari.

That's a feature of Safari, not Lion. It won't work in Chrome unless the Chrome team implements it, and the same applies for every other browser.

If you go into settings for the trackpad and select "more gestures" and change the first entry "swipe between pages" to "swipe with two or three fingers" you should be able to navigate back and forward with three fingers.

Ahh, thank you. Was wondering how to change this back to "normal".

Instead of changing system preferences: hold down option while swiping with three fingers. That'll let you go back/forward in Chrome.

I'll bet Chrome will get an update in the next few days to properly respect the two/three finger swipe setting in system preferences. Until then I'll just use the workaround.
