User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X; en; rv:1.8.1.13) Gecko/20080327 Camino/1.6b4 (like Firefox/2.0.0.13)

The new MacBook Pro models support three-finger gestures. These are for "navigation"; in Safari, they will move back/forward one page in the browser's history. 
Implementing this in Camino would both enhance the browser's integration into the OS, and speed up navigation on computers that are equipped with the new trackpads.

Which makes it a shame that Apple has withheld any API related to the new gestures, so that only Apple's applications can legitimately use them.

We could consider doing this now with the reverse-engineered methods if it's not enough code that potentially having to re-write in when a real API comes out wouldn't be an issue.

We'd also have to hope that Core doesn't do anything in bug 412486 that will break anything we might do :p

Landed on trunk and MOZILLA_1_8_BRANCH (we slipped it in for 1.6 since it's extremely low-risk).

Now I just need a MacBook Air...
