    Surely they must have noticed that the two-finger swipe to go back a page ONLY works in Safari. Of course, it works if you change it to the three finger gesture instead, but come on.

    Lion has a very unfinished feeling so far.

    Apple added new APIs in Lion and Safari has been updated to work with it. the developers have to update their apps to work with Lion's new features.

    but surely the developers of Finder and the other parts of Lion should have had access to this API?

    As opposed to working where?

    Keep in mind that they purposely removed most gestures from finder. Watch some of the WWDC videos if your a developer, they fully explain their rationale for the changes in their implementation of the desktop metaphor.

    Ok, I need to watch those videos then. I can see no reason why they would remove the ability to navigate in Finder with gestures.

    I've been using Lion for a day now, and this is really my only problem with it. I really wish they would have left the option to use gestures in Finder for people who liked it.

    The swipe gesture + Safari don't work so well using Facebook, but that's not such a big deal.
