    I'm not sure why. I know that sometimes the "control + scroll" to zoom feature sometimes stops working but if you turn on screensaver then turn it off it works again but this doesn't seem to fix the triple tap for dictionary. I'm sure if I restart it'll start working again but putting to sleep hasn't

    Yes I have the bug too with Ctrl + Scroll to Zoom. However, I don't seem to have the issue with the dictionary tap. It's actually not triple-tap, it's 3-finger-double-tap, which means you should tap twice but with three fingers, maybe that's why it doesn't work?

    It’s a double-triple-tap. :cool:

    Yes sorry that's what I meant. But it's still not working even after a restart! I don't know what to do. I thought that better touch tool may have been interfering but even after quitting it, it wouldn't work

    I just realised that the reason it isn't working is because I just switched from using Safari as my main browser to Chrome and I guess the triple finger double tap isn't system wide?

    No it's not. A lot of the new neat things in Lion work on Apple's apps only.
    Which is quite a bummer because Chrome and Firefox are superior to Safari in many ways.

    Do you think it will be added to chrome? Can they add it? Like they added full screen

    Its available in "Google Chrome Canary". But its kinda buggy, sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesn't.

    Good news is that it means it will be coming to the general release of Google Chrome soon.
