Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.
nexTab enables you quickly switch, close or open new tabs with Magic Trackpad or MacBook Pro/Air's multi-touch trackpad.

Support most tabbed applications including browsers, text editors, code editors and even IM softwares.
To switch tabs, simply hold one finger on trackpad, tap another finger to go previous or next tab.
To switch several tabs consecutively, one finger swipe at top border of trackpad. Please enable it in menu before using.
To close current tab, hold two fingers on trackpad, tap third finger on the left.
To open new tab, hold two fingers on trackpad, tap third finger on the right.
To refresh tab, hold two fingers on trackpad, tap third finger between them.
Switch to login window, one finger swipe through whole trackpad from right to left quickly.
Scroll to top / bottom, two fingers swipe through whole trackpad vertically.
You may enable/disable each gesture or quit the application in menu of nexTab menu bar icon.
Note: Due to system API limitation, nexTab does NOT support Magic Mouse.
What's New in Version 4.0
Added: switch to login window - one finger swipe through whole trackpad from right to left.
Added: scroll to top / bottom - two fingers swipe through whole trackpad vertically. (Like Home and End key on full-size keyboards.)
Fixed: tap to switch tabs cause links under cursor be clicked.
Finally - consistent in all browsers
I had installed BetterTouchTool and made up a system of gestures in each browser to match, but this little app does it so much better and is well worth the $$$.
"Scroll to top / bottom two fingers swipe vertically through whole trackpad" needs to be revised to support the natural scrolling in Lion, but it works.
2nd monitor issue
works, but there is a compatability issue when using a 2nd monitor for streaming. mouse disappears after a couple seconds of full screen streaming on my LED TV. the problem is fixed by merely closing the app. otherwise it does what it says, just annoying for someone that uses a 2nd monitor. hopefully cheng will look into this!
Great app, great support
I really love this app. The functionality works as described and fills in a nice hole in the available gestures on Lion.
Also, when I had a minor issue, the developer personally responded to my email the same day I sent it. GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE!!!
