    In the past, 2 finger swipe to the left or right in the finder allowed me to browse folders easily in Finder but now in Lion, i cannot seem to find a way to make it work again. Any one have any ideas?

    I have the option Swipe with two or three fingers. With this option enabled, I can use the scroll animation with two fingers, but also can swipe back and forward in finder and the app store with three fingers.

    Also, I have the natural scrolling setting, so if I scroll to the left with two fingers in Safari, I for Forward, but if I do it with three fingers I go back (the old setting).
