    Just noticed that my install of Canary supports two finger swipes (minimal support, no neat animations etc).

    The scroll bars work better; but no swiping here...

    Yep. With all the Safari 5.1 memory issues - just switched to Chrome Canary. 14.0.835.4 built supports 2-finger gestures, just like Safari.

    So far so good - Canary seems to be nice and speedy.. and no crazy memory leaks. Any others are running it? Post your experience here.

    Just installed Canary and can't get Smart Gestures (like Smart Zoom) to work. Do I have to enable it somewhere?

    Can anyone get the following feature to work in Canary (It's mentioned in about:flags):


    Tab Overview
    Swipe down with three fingers on your trackpad to see an overview of all your tabs. Click on a thumbnail to select it. Works great in fullscreen mode.

    PS: The scrollbar disappears in fullscreen mode, but two finger swipe doesn't work.

    Pretty sure Smart Gestures aren't supported (yet). 2-finger swiping is the only Lion gesture supported, and it just got added yesterday.

    How do you enable 2-finger swipe in Canary?

    It's on by default. Make sure in System Prefs - Trackpad that you have 2 finger swipes enabled.

    I installed the Canary build this morning after reading the TechCrunch article, but was unable to get gestures working at all. It appears I am not alone.
