    Question Safari Tabbed Browsing
    Safari on my iPad does not have tabbed browsing so I use an Atomic Browser app. Will I face the same issue with Lion on the new MBA?

    No - Safari has tabbed browsing in OS X - or you can use your preferred browser, whatever that might be as long as it's not IE.

    MacBook Pro 15", i7 2GHz Quad Core, 4GB RAM, 500GB HD, OS X 10.7.1 - iPhone 3GS
    Maybe it is just me, but I found FF (5.0.1) to not support some of the new features in Lion including basic gestures such as the two finger sideways swipe for forward and backward. But, I am a new recent convert was just getting my toes into the water with snow leopard. I'm probably showing how bad I stink of M$ still.

    That said, I went back to Safari and setup customized the buttons so I can click/tap instead of command-t to open a new tab. It is closer to FF now (which is similar to the Atomic Browser which I use on my iPhone) and I may just stick with it. Three finger tap for a dictionary lookup is just plain awesome sauce.

    That is great! I worry that my learning curve for both a new device and a new operating system may be a little daunting.

    I'm sure FF is not completely updated for Lion yet, neither is Chrome. At some point all the little things should work.

    FF 5.0.1 is in conflict with Lion's gestures. They will sort it all out in due course. In the meantime, enjoy Safari.
