    Just got a new air and noticed that the two finger swipe to go back or forward in safari is very unresponsive at times. Sometimes I'm just sitting there repeatedly swiping over and over until it finally registers. All other gestures work perfectly the first time, and my macbook pro has never had this issue. Anyone else experience this before or know whats causing it? It is an 11" if that matters.

    Edit: I should also note that if I change it to 3 fingers to go back and forward it works perfectly. When I change it back to 2 fingers it becomes spotty again.

    I find that it can be rather unresponsive depending on the website in question. Swiping often requires the page to reload, and that can be slow (especially for me, because all I can get here is slow Verizon DSL).

    But if this only happens on the MBA and not your other computers, something else might be going on. It works as expected for me, except on certain sites (like pages with lots of ads).
