    you can use multi-clutch for application specific gesture commands.

    i currently have 3 fingers up/down as top/bottom of page on safari (this is a default function in firefox)

    i also like to use rotate left/right to switch tabs in safari and firefox. at first, it's hard to use the gesture but you get used to it. now, i instinctively rotate left and right to switch tabs.

    How customizable is the software? I'm using a Logitech Performance MX which sucks ass for middle-clicking, but I use the hell out of all the buttons.

    I want to do something like this for the Magic Mouse:
    Two-finger swipe up/down/left/right: Close/New/Next/Previous Tab
    Three-finger swipe up/down: Dashboard/Desktop
    Swipe up/down with the right-click finger without moving the primary-click finger: Exposé (App Windows)/Exposé (All Windows)
    Four-finger swipe: Zoom

    And then maybe some really crazy shit like swiping my index and middle finger down while not moving my ring finger, etc.

    Swiping three fingers to the right to click a browser's back button is greater than everything.

    Which is bullshit. I use my back/forward buttons maybe once a week. Tabs > *

    E: Also why would you swipe right to go back? The back button is a left arrow. IT'S JUST NOT RIGHT.

    If I set a button on my Performance MX to a keystroke (CMD+K, for example), I can't use modifiers for shortcuts (Alt+CMD+K, Shift+CMD+K). I'm not sure if this is a Logitech problem or an OS X problem. It only works if I set buttons to "Mouse Button #," but that sucks ass because WoW doesn't detect anything higher than "Mouse Button 5," and I can't set shortcuts in OS X other than Expose to mouse buttons.

    Can somebody try setting a two-finger swipe down to CMD+K, then in Keyboard Shortcuts set CMD+K to Expose (All Windows) and Shift+CMD+K to Dashboard, and tell me if they both work? Swiping down with two fingers should activate Expose, and swiping down with two fingers while holding shift should activate Dashboard.

    I have two finger scrolling, can I do other gestures (i.e. three finger swipe)?

    Nope. Forgot how it works but the old trackpads use a different method for detecting two fingers that doesn't require multitouch.
