    I use to use a three finger swipe left and right to switch between tabs in my web browser before I upgraded to Lion. Now that Lion utilizes that gesture, I’m curious to hear what others use. FYI, I used Better Touch Tool and my main web browser is Chrome. I have checked the settings in BTT but I don’t think they have a three finger swipe left and right as an option now.

    Four Finger left to go back and right to go forward.
    Three Finger is dragging.
    Five Finger Swipe Right is sleep display.

    Better Touch Tool! :cool:

    I use 3 finger swipe up and down, down for next tab, up for previous tab. In Lion, I use only 4 fingers up for mission control.

    I'm pretty sure you can also just enable 4 finger left/right swipe to switch between spaces, and keep 3 finger left/right for tabs if you prefer.

    Using BTT, I've tried several combos and can't get any gesture to switch Safari tabs--I told BTT to mimic control-shift-tab and shift tab, as Safari is set for normally. For some reason it doesn't register... :confused:
