    Gleb SabirzyanovHacker. Aiming for the impossible!

    Amazingly simple to set up, can't imagine my life without it already! It saves so much time!


    Makes life very hard when you don't have it.

    I use it from 100 to 700 times per day according to built-in statistics.

It's behind the scenes, but I use this app more than any other app. A few of my favorite custom gestures: * Pinch out/in to open/close tabs in Chrome/Finder/iTerm/Sublime * Rotate left/right to switch tabs * Three finger click = middle click It also adds Window Snapping and a built-in remote receiver driven by an iOS app which are both pretty nice.

@parterburn where in the app do you find the commands to open/close tabs?
Paul ArterburnHunter@parterburn · Director of Engineering at Unreasonable
@kaz you have to use keyboard commands tied to the custom gestures. See @pomajp's comment below showing a screenshot of how it's done:

I've been using bettersnaptool for a long time. Both of these tools (from the same developer) are absolutely great. I would encourage everyone to make it a part of their default setup.

Can't forget BetterSnapTool, by the same dev. Such a great utility. Been using it for years.

@joelallouz BetterSnap's functionality is integrated into BTT as well, buried under some menus..
