    Opera Gestures?
    I recently decided to give the Opera web browser a try. The main reason being that I like how in Safari the home page has all those boxes, but in Opera you can choose which sites are shown.
    I've been enjoying Opera, but I can't seem to figure out how to get the multi touch gestures to work. I have a 13" macbook pro running OSX 10.5 and I'm using Opera 10. Does anyone know how to get the sweep with three figures to go back and forward pages and such to work on Opera like it does in Firefox?
    Thanks

    p.s. and the scroll up and down with two fingures works, it just the back and forth pages. And I did the Opera-Preferences-shortcuts thing and unless i did it wrong that didn't work.

    Give this a read. It's not multi touch but it does explain mouse gestures.

    Thanks... but is there a way to use multi touch gestures on the mouse pad of the laptop? If not, looks like I'll be reverting back to firefox, at least until the bug free version of chrome comes out.

    Multitouch is not supported. You can read the guide here to use Multi-Clutch to add support.

    What do you mean copies? Did it actually create multiple copies of the archive? What happens if you right-click and select "Open With" > "Archive Utility (Default)".

    If you are talking about Top Sites you can change them in Safari also. Look in the bottom left corner "edit" then just change them at will.

    I use the beta of Opera 10.10. I have MultiClutch (even though Opera had some trouble downloading it, so I used Safari) and the 3-finger gestures work fine.

    Also, Opera has thumbnails in tabs, and you can customize the background in Speed Dial. Safari can "bookmark" a page into Top Sites, though, which is nice.
