Ok, I gave gesture navigation a real try and I still hate it. It didn't become transparent to me, and I found myself screwing it up a lot. Mobile sites increasingly use side swiping for navigation, like on Mastodon, and it's way too easy to conflict with gestures. I also use the back action a lot in the web and the stretch to do a back-swipe is awkward one handed.
As of now I'm back on 3 button navigation
@tomasino I totally agree, too many of the gestures are overloaded, and conflict with application actions. It's a mess, and I'm back to 3-button as well.
