Scrub through tracks in iTunes 11 with two-finger swipe Apps
I am not sure if it is new to iTunes 11 or not, but you can use a two-finger swipe on the trackpad while the mouse pointer is over the track progress bar in the iTunes LCD to scrub forward and backward. This is available in MplayerX for scrubbing in movies. It seems faster than pressing and holding the next button either on iTunes or on the keyboard. The same gesture also applies to the volume controller on iTunes.

Also, since mouse scrolling is passed to a window as long as the pointer is over it, even if another window in focus, you can use this reduce iTunes volume with no clicks at all. However, the iTunes mini player does not display either the seek bar or the volume controller so it can be used for either.

[kirkmc adds: We've run a hint about using the scroll wheel mouse for this, and another one about using a two-finger swipe in QuickTime Player. I don't recall if this was possible in iTunes 10. It's worth noting that the cursor has to be precisely over the progress bar or the volume slider for this to work.]

This works with just one-finger swipe on my Magic Mouse.

Works as described in iTunes 10.7.
