Disable Chrome’s two-finger back/forward navigation

Page change gesture is a bit annoying to me because I often accidentally change pages when I just wanted to scroll up and down.

Because Google Chrome uses Apple’s default gestures, we can turn it off from System Preferences.

System Preferences > Trackpad > More Gestures > Swipe between pages

If you want to turn it off only on Google Chrome, open the terminal and type

defaults write com.google.Chrome.plist AppleEnableSwipeNavigateWithScrolls -bool FALSE
