Is there a way to make Google Maps play nice with gestures on the MBP trackpad?

    I've grown quite accustomed to two fingered scrolling and pinch to zoom gestures on my relatively new MacBook Pro but I find that one website in particular causes me constant frustration: Google Maps.

    When I attempt to pinch to zoom in or out of a location within Google Maps instead I just end up increasing the relative dimensions of the entire page with no increase in map resolution. When I attempt to use two finger scrolling to move up/down or left right within a map I end up drastically zooming in or out of the map.

    Is there a browser plugin for Safari or Chrome or some setting that I can adjust on my MBP or with Google in order to get the same gesture functionality out of Google Maps that I'm used to?
