It is possible to flip between tabs in Safari with a swipe, using Lion?
You can use BetterTouchTool to set one up. I set up a TipTap because custom swipes don't get along with Apple's gestures too well.
This. I tried to set up a swipe gesture to switch tabs but I couldn't find one that either wasn't already being used by Apple or a little awkward (5 finger swipe). I set it up using TipTap as well.
Same here. I set trackpad gestures to 4 fingers for desktop switching, mission control, and exposé, then set BTT for three finger tap to open links in new tabs, and 3 fingers swipe up and down to move between tabs.
Apparently BTT isn't available for Lion yet. I guess we have to wait.
It is available. He hasn't updated what it says on the downloads page, but if you read his postings he is talking about using it with Lion. Many of us are using BTT on Lion now.
I'm running it BTT right now, but can't quite figure out how to set it up. I can select the gesture I want, but can't figure out how to assign that gesture to an action (in this case, skip to next tab).
cmd+shift+] (or [ ) switches between tabs in Safari, so you could set up the gesture to that action and it should work.
cmd+shift+arrow key also does the trick, and it's closer to the trackpad on my MBP, so I use that. I'd love to have a gesture to switch between tabs though. I actually switch tabs more than I use the forward and back on my browser, so the 2-finger swipe would be great as an option for tab switching.
is it possible to assign my mac a command like "ALT + right arrow" to switch between tabs in safari?
I use 4 finger tap in safari to switch between tabs. Doesn't seem to interfere with any gestures and is easy enough
You can use control + tab. You'll get used to it after some time
4 finger tap to switch between safari tabs? have you installed an app for that?
btw "ctrl + tab" does a good job!
I'm loving everything in Lion, but does anyone share my sentiment that the two-finger left/right swiping in Safari should be to move between tabs and not navigate backwards?
its possible to switch back to the three finger page back and forward in safari and finder. go to gestures find select 3 finger from the drop down menu
I meant I'd prefer if the gesture switched between tabs, rather than move forward/backward in the tab's browsing history.
