Resize text with trackpad gestures on new laptops Laptop Macs
While I was within Safari, I was showing someone what the expand gesture was like for iPhoto, and discovered that the new trackpads resize the page font using that same gesture. Further investigation found that Mail does the same thing, and Preview resizes the whole page/photo.

[robg adds: According to a friend with a new laptop, the Preview zoom feature is shown in one of the how-to-use videos for gestures, but the font resizing functions are not. If this turns out to be clearly documented somewhere, please let me know and I'll remove the hint...]

It's mentioned in the Macbook Air guided tour. One of the reasons I really wanted a new MBP.

i was playing around with the idea of capturing multitouch gestures with javascript.

of course, it doesn't work so well in internet explorer. or if you're using the webkit nightly's full page zoom, but i was curious enough to try.

You can also do "back" and "forward" in the finder with the three finger swipe, thats really cool to navigate! I think this is new to 10.5.3, i don't remember that functionality in 10.5.2 although i just may not have discovered it....
