--- Comment #5 from Rick Byers <rbyers at chromium.org> ---
In our implementation of this feature on Chrome (on ChromeOS) we give the page first crack at the touch events and trigger the history behavior only if the page doesn't consume the events (exactly as for scrolling).  Why not consider something similar in Safari?

Dima works on real-world Google web properties struggling with this issue.  It's a shame that the swipe-from-side UX that users are used to from native mobile apps and in Chrome on Android can't possibly be implemented in Safari.  Is that really the right design choice for users here?
