    So I have installed Lion and really like it. But I have not been able to figure out how to navigate in Finder using gestures. Anyone know how to do this? Or is it not possible anymore?

    For all those having trouble when trying to navigate back and forth in Finder, you need to go to 'System Preferences', then 'Trackpad', 'More Gestures' and then you need to select the menu under 'Swipe between pages' and choose the third and last option there 'Swipe with two or three fingers'. That's it! Now you can easily use your fingers to surf Finder's history with folders.

    I did that, and it worked. But I noticed that when I have that selected, the animation in Safari when going back to a previous page does not work. Is this a bug or am I just missing something?

    When you use two fingers the animation works. When you use three fingers it doesn't. Doesn't seem to be a bug, just the way they designed it. I actually prefer the three fingers without the sliding animation.
