    Hi,

    I'm sorry if this is a silly question...:rolleyes:

    I've just got a new 13" MBP which I love. Still getting used to changing from a PC laptop but gradually getting there.
    Anyway when I'm web browsing I used to use the left button on my last laptop's trackpad as a "back" button which I found really useful and a quick way of navigating. Is there a way on configuring the MBP trackpad to do a similar thing as at the moment I have to keep going up to the back arrow in safari to do this? (hope this makes sense!).

    Thanks

    The navigation back and forward are built-in, but BetterTouchTool is the way to go for more customization. You can customize your trackpad to do all kinds of different things. I have it customized to switch between tabs, open tabs, close tabs, quit apps, and even make the computer go to sleep. Definitely a must-have app.

    on the note of trackpads, i find that my mbp's trackpad is really grippy; my finger doesnt glide freely over it n it feels weird. anyone else experiencing that?
