Using magic mouse 2 fingers swipe in Chrome/Firefox in LionUPDATE on Sep 15th:
If you don't want to use any other 3rd party software, it still can be done. Take Trackpad as example: Keep the default setting no change (2 fingers for Safari smooth history, 3 fingers for full screen app switch), when going forward or backward in Chrome or Firefox etc., press ALT(OPTION) key while swiping with 3 fingers. Thanks to Alejandro to provide the useful tip!UPDATE on Aug 31st:
After upgrading to 10.7.1, solution below does not work anymore. If you want forward/backward back, try using MagicPrefs. I'm testing. Again, you cannot use 2 fingers swipe of Trackpad (1 finger for Magic Mouse) go back and forth in Chrome, Finder, iTunes, Firefox and so on in 10.7.1 without help of 3rd party software's help.Just upgraded to Mac OS X Lion. A lot of new features come with some habits you may have to change. For example, the smooth browsing backward/forward experience in Safari together with no functioning of magic mouse's 2 fingers swipe for backward/forward in Chrome/Firefox or other web browser or applications. You may have same habit with me, on using magic mouse:
- Use 1 finger to scroll around (few webpages scrolls left to right, but they exist)
- Use 2 fingers to go backward/forward
- The 2 habits above apply to all browsers Safari, Chrome, Firefox and Opera, etc. Oh, and Finder.
- Some other applications may need this too, like in Sparrow, to fold and unfold a mail
- Use 1 finger to go backward/forward in Safari. (Yes, it's moving smoothly, nicely, elegantly...)
- Use 2 fingers to move to different desktop in "Mission Control"
- Cannot go backward/forward in other favorite browsers. Oh, and Finder.
- Cannot fold/unfold a mail in Sparrow either.
- Open Magic Mouse setting in System Preferences
- In More Gestures tap, click the drop down list under Swipe between pages and choose Swipe left or right with two fingers
- Uncheck the Swipe between full-screen apps
