New Mission Control Desktops are hot, especially flipping through them with two finger swipe. Back and forward single finger scroll is great on Safari, but does not work on Firefox 5 and on Google Chrome browsers.
Overall I like the OS X Lion and the new features like Mission Control with the new virtual desktop implementation is great. Yesterday I ran into the first gesture issue with the new default scrolling direction, which is totally confusing. Good thing that you can switch that off. Now there is a bigger problem with gestures and Firefox 5 and Chromebrowser. I have it now setup that I can fllp through full screenapps and desktops with two finger swipes on my magicmouse. The back and forward gesture is single finger scrolling (left/right). This works great on Safari. It also looks awesome. You just stay on the mouse and go forward and backward in your browsing history. I also use though Firefox, because I use a special add-on only available on Firefox.
Firefox is not supporting the back and forward gesture, which of course sucks. The Mozilla people actually have to fix this. A bug report is already filed here. Come on Mozilla developers! Please get on this and release an update. This message also goes to the Google guys. The Chrome browser is also not supporting the back and forward gesture.

About the Geek Mind
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
