    Even after I changed the gestures settings, Chrome does not accept two fingers to scroll back. Anyone else experience this?

    You can use 3 finger gestures to go back and fourth pages.

    System preferences > TrackPad > More Gestures > Swipe Between Pages > Use 3 finger option

    why does everybody seem to assume one has a trackpad?

    Because most Apple computers sold now come with trackpads.

    Something like 70% of Apples computer sales are from portables.

    So - most people have a trackpad.

    In the gestures I've changed "Swipe between pages" to "Swipe with 2 or 3 fingers". That gives the nice animation in Safari and brings back the swiping gesture for going back and forward in Finder and Chrome. That change alters "Swipe between full-screen apps" to "Swipe left or right with four fingers" and "Mission Control" to "Swipe up with four fingers". I've also enabled App Expose.

    I'd also suggest getting BetterTouchTool. It's a great utility for extending gesture support. I thought it would be put out to pasture with Lion but it still has a place. I've set up a few extra gestures:


    Click bottom left/right - enter/exit full screen mode

    Safari & Chrome

    3 finger swipe down - scroll to top of page
    3 finger swipe up - scroll to bottom of page
    Tap bottom right - switch 1 tab to the right
    Tap bottom left - switch 1 tab to the left
    4 finger click - New tab
