Pinch to zoom in TextEdit System 10.8
Use a two-finger pinch on a trackpad to zoom the text in TextEdit documents. Pinch your fingers apart to zoom in, and pinch them together to zoom out.

[kirkmc adds: This works zooming in and out with TextEdit. I expected it to work in other apps, and it does in Preview. However, it only works zooming in with Safari; if you pinch together, you see the currently open tabs, as explained in this hint.]

Pinch to zoom in TextEdit

To be clear, this absolutely does work in Safari. Once you've zoomed in, you can zoom back out using the gesture. Once you zoom out past 100%, you get the tab view.
