More three finger Safari swipes on new laptops Laptop Macs
So I keep experimenting with the new three finger trackpad swipes, and came across the following in Safari. Command and three fingers swiped to the right or left will create the forward or backward page in a new tab. Option-Command and a three finger swipe (left or right) opens the backward or forward page in a new window behind the current one. Finally, Shift-Option-Command and a three finger swipe (left or right) opens the backward or forward page in a new window in front of the current one.

Obviously, for any of these to work, you must have a page or pages in the forward and/or backward buffers.

So basically it does the same thing that it would if you held those keys and clicked the forward or backward buttons.

What I would like to see is a hint that lets me use gestures to switch tabs instead of going backward and forward.

The program MultiClutch [link:http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/27016/multiclutch] does quite a good job of assigning custom commands to gestures.
I am currently using three finger up and down swipe to switch between tabs – a great time saver.
