Since I now rely on spaces (what a great feature:)) so much to organize my windows, I'm constantly going back and forth on my favorite ways to switch between spaces. I mostly use control arrow keys, but the control # keys is also useful, and sometimes I just use the spaces icon on my toolbar, or just switch to the program I want to use with command tab and don't worry about which space the window I want is in.

Recently, I've been wondering if it would be possible to program the three finger swipe function of the new trackpads to switch between spaces, or do other things for that mater. Is there some third party software out there that lets you change the functions of the multitouch trackpad kind of like Steermouse lets you change the functions of mouse buttons?
