    I spend 50% of my time on a notebook with a trackpad, and 50% of my time on an iMac with a mouse. The differences in gestures between the two drives me nuts.

    I'm thinking of installing one of these utilities to attempt to make the mouse behave the same way the trackpad does.

    Same zooming, same number of fingers to swipe, same 3-up for Mission Control, etc. I'm really not looking for the insane gestures that can be assigned with either. Just the notebook basics for the sake of consistency.

    I'd also like, if possible, to set the back/swipe up so it works in other browsers and iTunes/Mac app stores, just like the good old days.

    Any suggestion on which one would better meet these needs, and which is currently more stable with Lion?

    I use BTT and have never had a problem in Lion. And it has the ability to do all of those gestures. And it's free.

    I second that. I use BTT and it works great on Lion
