    Pros: 

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

    Cons: 

    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.

    Gleb Sabirzyanov has used this product for one year.

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?

@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..
