Chrome three-finger gesture Web Browsers
I am currently using the developer version of Google's Chrome browser (v. 11). In it, 3 finger grab gesture (pull 3 finger across top-to-bottom) on your Macbook, you get a window within the current window that shows all of your open tabs.

On a Macbook, if you perform a 3 finger swipe gesture in Chrome browser (top-to-bottom NOT left-to-right or right-to-left), you get all the open windows within your current tab. You can click on any window to jump to that tab.

[crarko adds: I haven't tested this one. I presume this is referring to the nightly builds of Chromium, which is the open source basis of Google Chrome. It may be a while before this feature appears in the release version (currently 9.x). But much as people download the nightly builds of WebKit (Safari) it can be handy to stay on top of where Chrome is heading.]

yes one of the nice about:flag options now being forced upon Mac users, thank you very much

there's just no option to turn this off any more!

I mostly use the beta version of Chrome, and this feature used to work. But in version 10 it no longer seems to be functioning. So maybe it has been relegated to the developer build?

You can enable this (with other things) in about:flags. It's called "Tab Overview".

This is cue.
But why not use two, three, four, five-finger touch in ALL MacOSX apps? Just use the amazing free BetterTouchTool (http://blog.boastr.net/)

I'm using Chrome version 11.0.686.3 dev on an early-2010 MBP, and this hint doesn't work for me. The only thing that happens when I swipe 3 fingers top to bottom is it highlights/selects everything in the path of my swipe.

You need to set the "Three Fingers" setting in system preferences to "Swipe To Navigate", not "Dragging".

I am using Google Chrome version 10.0.648.127 beta and the feature works very smoothly. This is probably the best feature in chrome so far!

Type about:flags in the URL bar, then Enable the Tab Overview option, restart and enjoy it.


NB: Crarko maybe you should update the hint itself, or create a new hint.
