I just upgraded to ML but I absolutely hate the gestures. Is there anyway to get Snow Leopard gestures onto Mountain Lion? For example, on SL, when you use two/three (I forgot how many lol) fingers and slide to the left on your track pad, it would go 'back' on Safari/Chrome or on finder. On ML, it would only work for Safari/Chrome but not on finder and I find that really annoying. Or am I SOL :(.

System Preferences > Trackpad > More Gestures > Swipe between pages > Swipe with two or three finders.

Yeah I got that but it only works for webpages. In SL it worked with Finder as well. Lets say you are browsing through your documents, click on folders but didn't find what you need. Instead of hovering your mouse to the top left to click 'back' you can just use two/three fingers and swipe to the left and it'll bring you to the previous folder.

I think you will need BetterTouchTool to get some good mappings. The ML defaults and options in prefs imo are poor and very limited.

Thats kind of stupid if you get used to the two finger swipe.

It would take me long time for me to get use to the three finger swipe.
Id rather use bettertouchtool and use the two finger swipe in Finder.

Can you use two finger scroll up/down/left/right at the same time then?
